Stephen Curry has everything new around him: a new season and a new coach. Despite all these developments, he has reaffirmed that he is the Most Valuable Player of GS Warriors.
New coaching decisions
The GS Warriors faced many questions in the 2014-15 NBA season. The team lost a 2013-14 first-round playoff series to the Los Angeles Clippers in seven games and after that, the team’s head coach, Mark Jackson, was fired. Although the franchise’s win total increased in each of the three seasons Mark Jackson was with the team, nevertheless the Warriors front office had decided it was time for them to move on. This bold decision by the office was the subject of heated debate in the media for weeks. Several players, including Curry, were unhappy with the move; going public to express their displeasure. Former NBA player Steve Kerr was hired shortly after Jackson’s firing, overlooking a lack of prior coaching experience.
Where is the love?
A new coach with no prior experience is not the only problem the GS Warriors must face in the upcoming 2014-15 season. Kevin Love’s commercial giveaways were heating up this summer. While the Minnesota Timberwolves were looking for a valuable return from their power forward, some teams were constantly ahead of them. The Cleveland Cavaliers eventually won the draw, but along with it, the GS Warriors were one of the few teams that had a valuable offer for the Minnesota Timberwolves. The GS Warriors were reported to be offering a package that revolved around Klay Thompson; The Timberwolves’ sharp shooting guard. After Kerr disapproved of this potential move, and the Cavaliers offered a package built around Andrew Wiggins (the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft) Love was sent to Cleveland. Thompson signed a $ 70 million 5-year extension with the Golden State Warriors shortly after his name was spread on trade rumors. So, with everything in the right place, GS Warriors is ready for the 2014-15 season.
The challenge to victory and discomfort
Through 20 games, GS Warriors have shown that they can overcome major injuries to key players and that Kerry can maintain his position as the league leader. From all of this, Curry has emerged as one of the best point guards on the team and as one of the best players in the NBA overall. Over 20 games, his points, assists and steals per game rank in the top 1 in the league. His game of 5.1 rebounds or game ranks second among all point guards. These have made him the most valuable player on the team and in the league. He is also a favorite for the NBA MVP award.
Kerr had a great influence on the Warriors players. Additionally, Curry’s performance continues to make a sudden impact on the court. Stephen Curry is currently at a high level in his career, offensively, and is showing an increase in dedication on defense. Unlike. now, without Kerr, the Warriors could be lost in the middle of the NBA Western Conference deck; that remains to be seen. Meanwhile, the GS Warriors’ rise to the top is truly a team effort; however, without their leader Curry, they would be nowhere.
