HoopsHype Stephen Curry rumors

But Curry has zero regret about his decision to re-sign with the Warriors in that moment, and he thinks about it far less than us media types. “Yeah, you expect to continue to get better," Curry told Sporting News when asked about outplaying the deal. "Obviously, I was in a unique situation, one that I was very comfortable with the decision I made coming off the ankle surgeries. "I was confident I’d be able to get back, but I didn’t know how long the road was going to be to get back to 100 percent and take my game to the next level. But four years is a long time and you hope you can prove that you’re that max type of player and talent." Sporting News

Despite the perception he is already a max-level talent, Curry still sees himself as striving to prove he is worth that type of price tag. "Throughout the life of my contract, that’s kind of what I’ve been trying to do," Curry said. "Hopefully, I’ll be able to capitalize down the road, but I never second-guessed my decision at the time and I still haven’t because I thought it was the right one at the time. I’m healthy and playing well and my team is winning. That’s all I’m really worried about.” Sporting News

An X-ray examination of the left ankle Warriors guard Stephen Curry injured in Sunday's 104-93 win at Detroit was negative. Curry suffered what he said was a tweak of the ankle while going for a steal in the third quarter. He returned to play briefly before going to the locker room to ice it and undergo an examination, missing the final eight minutes of the game. "Just as long as I take care of it the next couple of days, I should be fine," said Curry, who had 16 points and 10 assists against the Pistons. Contra Costa Times

Before Curry and the 12-2 Warriors face the Hornets on Friday, he spoke of it being natural to have always thought about playing for his hometown team. "That's hard to get out of your head, but obviously, it has no bearing on decisions that I make down the road," said Curry, who can become a free agent after the 2016-17 season. "It's just a fun thought to have. The Hornets name does mean a lot to my family, and obviously I'm starting a new thing with the Warriors. I definitely feel right at home here (with Golden State)."

“Who better than him…at the point guard spot,” Green said. “I don’t know someone that’s better than him, so I definitely think he’s taken over that top spot at the point guard spot. Obviously, with winning comes accolades, so we keep continuing to win, all that stuff will take care of itself.” “He’ll be an All-Star. He’ll be all that stuff. You continue to win games, and those wins add up, it’ll be hard to deny him the MVP.” Contra Costa Times

When asked if Curry and Thompson are the best backcourt in the NBA, Thompson deferred. "I don't really care about that," Thompson said. "If there were two people on the court and it was us versus them, it would be a different story. But it's five of us on the court. Our goal is to play into June [in the NBA Finals]. It's not to have the labels as the best backcourt." During the off-season, many reports said Thompson was going to be traded to Minnesota for All-Star power forward Kevin Love, who wound up in Cleveland. Los Angeles Times

Then last month Thompson signed a four-year contract extension for $70 million. "It was important to get the extension," Thompson said. "But at the same time, if it didn't happen, I was going to do what I do — just play hard, score the ball and defend." "Our owner just gave him $70 million so I'm sure he's happy," Kerr said, laughing. "That sold him. That told him how much we wanted him." Los Angeles Times
