Warriors star Steph Curry reportedly buying $8M San Francisco condo

Warriors star Steph Curry reportedly buying $8M San Francisco condo

It appears Steph and Ayesha Curry are establishing some roots in San Francisco.

The couple reportedly is buying a piece of property less than two miles from Chase Center.

As J.K. Dineen of The San Francisco Chronicle writes:

Curry snapped up a condo in the Four Seasons Private Residences at 706 Mission St., a new tower opening in June across from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

The price for the 2,800-square-foot condo the Currys bought was just under $8 million, according to real estate sources familiar with the unit and building.

The unit is on the 30th floor — coincidentally, Curry wears No. 30 for the Warriors.

The new condo is also just a few blocks from International Smoke, the steak and BBQ restaurant Ayesha Curry owns with celebrity chef Michael Mina at the Millennium Tower at 301 Mission St.

When the Warriors moved from Oakland to SF, the Curry's moved from the East Bay to Atherton.

And after the two-time NBA MVP dropped 40 points on the Minnesota Timberwolves during a preseason game Oct. 10, he revealed that he arrived at Chase Center 20 to 25 minutes later than usual because of traffic.

"For 10 years, I had the same routine every step of the way," he told reporters. "I try to repeat that routine but there are some quirks and different routes you take. It's a different vantage point."

So starting next season, Curry no longer has to go back to Atherton between shootaround and the game. He can hang out and/or nap at his new pad.

Or, if he and Ayesha have date night in San Francisco, the commute to go to sleep is much shorter.

Genius.

Why Santa Cruz Warriors traded Juan Toscano-Anderson's G League rights

Why Santa Cruz Warriors traded Juan Toscano-Anderson's G League rights

Juan Toscano-Anderson was fantastic in the Warriors' loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night.

He racked up 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal, and was a team-best plus-six in 28 minutes off the bench.

But let's go back to something that transpired last Friday, because you might have missed the news.

The Santa Cruz Warriors acquired Zach Norvell Jr. (who was on a 10-day contract with Golden State before the All-Star break) from the South Bay Lakers in exchange for a G League 2020 first-round draft pick and ...

... the G League returning player rights to Juan Toscano-Anderson.

What does that mean exactly? Well, if JTA isn't on an NBA roster at the beginning of next season and chooses to sign with the G League, he will suit up for South Bay and not Santa Cruz.

The Sea Dubs could reacquire the Oakland native, but it would come at a cost in a trade.

Toscano-Anderson, of course, is hoping to stay in the NBA so none of this comes into play.

Also keep in mind that the 26-year-old could sign a two-way contract as well.

Why Kevin Durant leaving Warriors for Nets made no sense to Joe Lacob

Why Kevin Durant leaving Warriors for Nets made no sense to Joe Lacob

Kevin Durant won two championships with the Warriors.

He was named NBA Finals MVP twice.

But after three seasons with Golden State, he chose to sign with the Brooklyn Nets in free agency last summer.

KD recently admitted he knew at about the halfway mark of last season that he was going to leave the franchise.

Warriors owner Joe Lacob -- who doesn't like to discuss the past very much -- probably never will understand why the four-time scoring champion chose a different path.

"I can't get mad when Kevin Durant -- who I felt pretty close with -- decides he's going to leave. Which to me, made no sense," Lacob said Monday morning on 95.7 The Game. "You're (with) the best organization -- I hope he thinks -- in the world.

"Winning, other great players, the new arena. To me, there was every reason in the world to stay. But I'm not gonna be mad at him because it's his life and he earned the right. And for whatever reason, he decided he wanted to leave.

"I can't control that. I tried (laughing)."

Based on everything that has come to light over the last nine months or so, there were several reasons -- not just one -- why Durant decided it was time to go.

But that's water under the bridge at this point.

What matters now is KD getting back to full strength following his Achilles injury. Basketball misses him.
