The New Orleans Pelicans guard Friday had ESPN’s Bomani Jones as the guest on his podcast, and well … … here’s what happened: Jones: “People got mad at me because I was saying Steph Curry — he’s not on my list of guys to go get his own shot. Guys that go 1-4 flat and get us a bucket — I’ll take Dame (Damian Lillard), I’ll take Kyrie (Irving). If I need somebody to turn 5-on-5 into 4-on-3, I’ll take Steph … JJ looks like he’s about to jump through the screen.” Redick: “The amount of disrespect that Steph Curry gets — it blows my mind (laughter). It blows my mind. It blows my mind … he creates off the dribble all the time.”
It’s not often you hear a two-time NBA MVP referred to as a “system player.” But that’s exactly how ESPN’s Bomani Jones views Warriors star Steph Curry, as he shared on his podcast Friday. “He’s got sick handle and all that stuff. There’s something different,” Jones said on “The Right Time with Bomani Jones.” “It’s hard to explain what it is with Steph, but Steph is somehow like the greatest system player of all time. And I’m not saying that to shade him. But you are not going 1-4 flat and being like, ‘Get us a bucket.’ ” Curry seemed to respond with a veiled reference to the comments while praising Bay Area native and 2020 WNBA No. 1 overall draft pick Sabrina Ionescu in her professional debut. “And shout out to all the system players in the @WNBA,” Curry said. “We get it done.”
Ellis was a fan favorite for Dub Nation, so the trade stung. But former Warriors executive Jerry West believes Curry is who he is today because of the Ellis trade. “I think when there was a trade made up there, it gave him more room to do things, and also have the ball in his hands,” West told 95.7 The Game’s Damon Bruce, Ray Ratto and Matt Kolsky on Friday. “If you have someone that can do something really well and you don’t have the ball in your hands or you don’t have players that compliment you, it’s tougher to reach the excellence he’s reached. “A very popular player during my time up there, Monta Ellis was traded and to me, that opened up [Curry’s] ability to become who he is today. I think it made him more confident. They weren’t a good, I think, pair together, and they were both terrific players, really terrific players. But I think Steph was the person that had the most growth left in him, and when Monta left, you’re seeing Steph Curry of today.”
When asked what the Warriors’ season would have looked like had Curry remained healthy, Kerr acknowledged that it would have been a challenge to compete with the league’s best. “Well to be honest, I think it still would’ve been a struggle,” Kerr said in the “Damon, Ratto & Kolsky” podcast on 95.7 The Game. “I think there were just too many factors that were going against us. Obviously, we would’ve won a lot more games. Steph is so talented that he would’ve undoubtedly won plenty of games on his own.”
No player in the NBA attempted more 3-pointers over the first four seasons of Steve Kerr’s tenure as Warriors coach than Steph Curry. Yet, even Kerr initially was sometimes skeptical of Curry’s shot selection. “He changed my understanding of what was a good shot and what was not,” Kerr explained Friday on 95.7 The Game’s “Damon, Ratto & Kolsky.” ” … The first couple months that I coached Steph, half the shots that he took, I could hear my old coaches’ voices ringing in my head saying, ‘That’s a bad shot. That’s a bad shot.’ “
“One of the things that bothers me about next year is that a lot of people are writing off my Warriors,” Casspi said to Golden State coach Steve Kerr on his most recent podcast. “It bothers me. A team being coached by Steve Kerr — (with) Steph Curry and Klay (Thompson) coming back, Draymond (Green), you just added Andrew Wiggins and hopefully a top-five pick. “You guys have a good team. No pressure, no added pressure (smiling) — it’s not gonna make any headlines. But you guys are so good. I got you guys. I’m so excited.”
Tour officials have been talking to Curry for nearly two years about attaching his name to a new tournament in the Bay Area. The event would make its debut in September 2021, on the fall portion of the PGA Tour schedule. The contract for the Curry event will cover at least five years, according to a Rec & Park staff report posted Wednesday. The amendment scheduled for a discussion and vote Thursday would relinquish the ’26 Presidents Cup, as city and tour officials finalize the Curry event.
What gives Curry hope that the Warriors can get back on the right track during the 2020-21 season? “We still have a great core,” Curry told reporters Friday during an interview after the first round of the American Century Championship golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. “We have an understanding of who we are, and like you said, it was a crazy year with my hand injury, Klay being out all year, Draymond in and out of the lineup with injuries all year, a lot of new guys. It’s definitely different.”

Warriors to monitor Stephen Curry's minutes next season

Of course, those numbers for Wiggins were without Thompson on the floor – and without, for all but one game together, Curry. That one game in March was the only one Curry played after breaking his hand four games into the season last November. Curry will be 32 when the Warriors lace ’em up again for real, and Kerr said it was time to start putting him on a version of the KG Plan going forward. “Now, (Curry’s) at the point where he’s been at the peak of his powers for the last couple of years,” Kerr said of his two-time league MVP. “If anything, it’s on us to try to begin to manage his minutes. We’ve always been really blessed. We’ve been able to do that because of the talent on our team. We’ve never really run Steph into the ground. We don’t have as much depth as we once did. It’s on us as a coaching staff to make sure we get him his rest every night, and we’re not wearing him out.”
Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, was shot and killed by Louisville police executing a search warrant on March 13. Nearly four months later, the three police officers involved in Taylor’s death haven’t been arrested. Athletes across the country have been calling for justice for Taylor, including Warriors superstar Steph Curry. On Friday, while playing in the American Century Championship golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, Curry wore special shoes that honored the memory of Taylor.
Curry was asked about his tribute to Taylor during NBCSN’s broadcast. “Obviously not to forget to Breonna Taylor in terms of finding justice for her,” Curry said. “As life goes on, we’re all using our platform to shed light on the injustices going on and I wanted to use this opportunity to celebrate her life and try to continue the impact everyone is trying to have in terms of continuing this meaningful conversation of how we make change for ourselves, the next generation and our kids.”

Draymond Green said his championship Warriors would beat your Lakers. Any thoughts on that? Shaquille O’Neal: I have a hard time believing that the greatest coach of all time, plus me and Kobe, wouldn’t match up quite nicely against Steve Kerr and his gang. Kobe takes Steph and dominates him. Fisher takes Klay and manhandles him. Fox takes Draymond and makes him foul out in the first half. Horace would do his thing with K.D. But let’s be real, K.D., is a beast, and you can only do so much with him. And then I’d remind Pachulia why I am in the Hall of Fame and he is not.

“I know he’s really looking forward to this year because he’s had a chance to play and practice and really concentrate,” Dell Curry said in a conference call. “He’s been able to unwind, as opposed to finishing the finals and a week later he’s in Tahoe without a chance to unwind and rest up. He has a real good short game. He’s definitely thinking that maybe it’s his year.”
An endorsement for Steph as the winner also came from Charles Barkley, who hasn’t allowed a tortured swing keep him playing golf and having an opinion. “Steph has actually got a real job so he’s always at a disadvantage,” Barkley said. “He might have a real chance this year because his game is sharp, he’s healthy. This probably is the most he’s ever been prepared. Think about it — he’s been busy the last three years winning the MVP and championships. If he’s going to win it, this would be the year.”
Juan Toscano-Anderson: But my point is people remember how you made them, feel how you treated them. It’s so crazy being around Steph now because I get to watch him work out every day and it’s honestly a workout video. It’s a video game watching this guy work out. It’s such a pleasure to watch him work out. But what’s crazy? Whenever you talk to people about Steph, the first thing people say is how nice he is, how unreal it is that he’s such a good person and he’s this caliber type superstar. And I want people to say those things about me regardless of what I accomplish in my basketball career. But now I want people to remember that I was nice to them. I want people to remember that I tried to be a leader. I want people to remember that I was a positive influence for the youth and so forth. It’s cool to play for the Warriors and be from Oakland.
It remains to be seen if the second bubble will actually take place, but even if it does, it sure seems like you won’t be seeing Steph Curry play in it. ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan reported he wouldn’t have played in Orlando had the Warriors qualified, and it begs the question as to why Chicago would be any different. “I was told unequivocally by people at Golden State,” MacMullan said Thursday on the “Hoop Collective” podcast, “if Golden State came back (to play in Orlando) they weren’t gonna let Steph Curry step foot on the floor.” “The reason they were worried about Steph Curry,” MacMullan added, “was because they didn’t feel that he had played enough to come back.”

Larry Riley was a guest on 95.7 The Game’s “Bonta, Steiny & Guru” show Thursday morning, and was asked if it’s true that Steph named his daugther after him. He answered by telling a story that, to our knowledge, has not been shared publicly. “Steph came into my office one day, and he sat down in front of me and he said, ‘Hey coach, we’re getting ready to have a child and it’s a girl. We’re looking at names. What would you think if we named our baby girl Riley?’ I was blown away,” Riley said. “I was just absolutely blown away.
Bob Myers joined the “Bonta, Steiny & Guru” show and was asked when he knew Steph was destined for superstardom. The Warriors’ general manager revealed his “aha moment” came during Game 2 of the Warriors’ Western Conference semifinals matchup vs. the San Antonio Spurs in 2013. “He came off a screen at the top and he took a one-footed 3-point shot — in the halfcourt,” Myers explained. “I looked at Travis (Schlenk) — our assistant GM at the time — and said, ‘Did he just shoot that off one foot?’ It looked so natural. I said, ‘This guy is different man.’”
She also is a mother of three and married to Warriors superstar Steph Curry, having heard others’ thinly-veiled sexist doubts owing her success entirely to her husband’s influence. Ayesha freely admits her marriage undoubtedly helped her get opportunities, as Steph is one of the most popular athletes on the planet. Yet Ayesha Curry, not Steph, was the one who made the most of those chances. “Were doors opened for me because of him? Absolutely,” she told Garrett. “But I had to be the one who walked through them, prove myself and stay in the room to be there. If that wasn’t the case, everybody else would be there, too.”

“I really, truly believe they can win a title within the next three years,” Pierce said. “Even though we didn’t see (Steph) Curry (or) Klay (Thompson) this year. But you gotta admit — this is probably the best backcourt in all of basketball still. “If they make the right moves … they’re gonna get a nice draft pick that they can probably parlay into a good player, (or maybe) a very good player. All the infrastructure is in place for them to really build a championship team within the next three years.”

With a world enveloped in protests over social injustice combined with a COVID-19 pandemic, Warriors star Stephen Curry delivered a message of hope to young people Friday. “This is a great time to be alive,” Curry said near the end of a virtual discussion entitled “The Dream Marches On” hosted by USF. “I’m excited to see what this next generation does as they venture out on their own. The people I got to walk with at a protest, young men and women of all ages, people are meeting the moment.”
The Warriors star and his wife Ayesha agreed to match up to $50,000 in donations made through June 30 to the USF institute through their own “Eat, Learn, Play” foundation. “This has been the culimination of 400 years of injustices in a system that is not working for all people in this country,” Curry said. “It took a perfect storm of two pandemics at one time to grab everybody’s attention. We’re obviously dealing with COVID and its threat to our society, and that has opened up a conversation and an awareness level for all people. I hope the conversaton continues, and that this isn’t just a moment, but a movement and we find changeable actions where everyone can play their role and play their part.”
