Put four stars – Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson – on a team, and they’ll argue about more than who’s best. They’ll cut into deeper issues. Like shoes. Joined by Durant and Nas on Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons, Simmons asked Nas his opinion of Curry’s shoes – the ones Curry defended as fire and most certainly were not fire. In fact, Simmons specifically said he couldn’t ask Durant the question. Durant answered anyway: They were bad.

Aside from a two-week run-up after his extended break, they went “pedal to the medal.” Twice a day, six days a week, the routine interrupted briefly by Curry’s Under Armour trip to China in early September. The good news, as Payne sees it? “He’s the strongest he’s ever been,” he said with a smile. Q: There was so much talk about Steph’s knee and the part it played in the Finals. How did you see it? How bad a shape was he in? A: “You know, the injury he had, it wasn’t a bad injury. It just needed rest. That’s really all it was. It wasn’t like he was ever in jeopardy of having a procedure or anything like that. He just needed rest. So five weeks of rest was good.”
Storyline: Stephen Curry Injury
Do you think Steph kind of went through a modern day “Jordan Rules” in the playoffs? Did he get stronger in the offseason? -KERR: He does look good, he looks strong. I know he’s been working hard. It was important for him to get rest–it’s always tricky when you only have three months and you’ve got an injury. You want to get rest but you want to get better at the same time, that’s not an easy thing to accomplish. I think Steph has done a good job of that; he looks good. At the the highest level of sports, this is what happens. You face injury, you face a loss, you face criticism. I say it all the time, you know, this is why these guys get paid a lot of money and that’s where they really earn it.

“I still haven’t gotten over Game 7,” Curry told USA TODAY Sports during a break in the shoot. “That’s something that will stay with me pretty much forever, for good and bad reasons. Obviously you hated the feeling, but it’s also a motivator to come back even stronger and try not to have that feeling again. “I’m at that point now where I can try to fuel any kind of terrible nightmares or thoughts about Game 7 into motivation for how I’m going to prepare myself for this year.”
