Stephen Curry has sent a message to his haters ahead of new NBA season with the Golden State Warriors.
The two-time MVP had an amazing season last term, as he averaged a career-high 32 points per game on 48.2 field goal percentage and 42.1 from three, along with 5.8 assists per game and 5.5 rebounds per game.
In a recent radio appearance on SiriusXM NBA Radio with Frank Isola and Brian Scalabrine, Curry went and said that the hate and doubt he and the Warriors received fueled his competitive fire. (via NBC Sports Warriors):
“I mean, there was a moment at the beginning of last year, before the Portland game and the 62 [points], that I heard a lot of noise and I heard a lot of talk about who I wasn’t and we [Warriors] were going to get exposed and I was going to get exposed and all that type of stuff. I definitely took pride in shutting all that up.”
And despite all the talk surrounding his performance, the Warriors star doesn’t let it get to him:
“I don’t think you’re ever going to get that love like that until it’s all said and done. So it doesn’t matter to me. It doesn’t matter what the narrative is. I definitely did appreciate that I played extremely well and reminded everyone what I was capable of. And I’m carrying that confidence into this year.”
