Following another Warriors’ loss, Steph Curry voiced his frustration with his team’s foul troubles.
After dominating the league during the latter half of the 2010s, the Golden State Warriors have fallen upon hard times since then. Last year, they finished with the NBA’s worst record following Kevin Durant’s departure to the Brooklyn Nets and Klay Thompson missing the entire season with a torn ACL.
Of course, Steph Curry also missed the majority of the year with a hand injury. Luckily, he’s back and healthy this season and torching opponents like he did during his MVP campaigns. Unfortunately for Curry, this iteration of Golden State is a far cry from their dynastic days just a few years ago.
The Warriors are currently 10th in the Western Conference, clinging on to a half-game lead over the New Orleans Pelicans for that final spot in the play-in tournament. Much of their struggles can be attributed to some fouling issues, and Curry didn’t mince words when asked about it following last night’s loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
Is Steph Curry unhappy in Golden State?
With the way things have gone this season for the Warriors, many people have speculated about Curry’s future with the team. For instance, Brian Windhorst recently said that LeBron James has already begun recruiting him, although that turned out to be more of a tongue-in-cheek comment.
Still, with the number of superstars who have request trades over the past few seasons, it’s not crazy to think that Curry might be frustrated in Golden State too. However, it seems unlikely that he’ll be leaving the Bay Area anytime soon since he’s constantly stated his desire to play for a single team and remain a Warrior for life.
Furthermore, things will likely improve for Golden State as soon as next season, with Thompson set to return from his Achilles tear combined with additional growth from James Wiseman. No matter what happens, it’s still nice to see a healthy Curry dominating opponents every time he steps out on the court.
