Curry is 35 years old. The two-time MVP and four-time champion is still putting up elite numbers for the Warriors. 

Curry is averaging 28.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.4 blocks this season while shooting 46.2% from the field, 42.1% from beyond the arc and 92.2% from the free-throw line. He leads the NBA in 3-pointers. 

The Warriors signed Curry to a four-year, $215 million extension in August 2021. Curry is under contract through the 2025-26 season. He’s expected to spend his entire career in Golden State. 

“How I approach anything is how I approach everything,” Curry told Michael Lee of The Washington Post. “So there’s a reverence and a respect for what that responsibility comes with. The business of basketball gets to you every once in a while. All the hard work is stuff you do in the weight room and recovery and strength and conditioning. The mental stuff. And then you get on the court, it’s fun. It’s kind of an automatic trigger. It’s not every night you hit that 10 out of 10 in the joy, but it’s pretty close.”

Curry is one of the greatest players in NBA history. He’s the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-point field goals. The Davidson product, who has career averages of 24.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 6.4 assists, has made 10 All-Star teams and nine All-NBA teams. 

Curry will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer one day. He’s the best shooter of all time and a top five point guard in NBA history. 

The Warriors are in 10th place in the Western Conference standings. Curry is the only player on the roster averaging at least 20.0 points. It will be interesting to see how the Dubs perform in the second half of the season.
