Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry is undeniably the greatest shooter in NBA history. Moving without the basketball and shooting from all over the floor, his teammates and coaches can trust him to make shots from anywhere beyond the arc. Curry has for sure changed the game of basketball, for better or worse, that is on the pandits to decide. He recently broke Golden State Warriors’ great Wilt Chamberlin’s unique franchise record. Klay Thompson had high praise for the Warriors guard.

On Monday, Curry passed NBA great Wilt Chamberlain in the franchise’s record books for most made field goals. This sent Curry to the top of yet another statistical category. Curry already holds the top spots in the number of games played, made 3-pointers, assists, steals, and points scored while wearing a Warriors uniform. Curry surpassed Chamberlain in made shots thanks to his 38-point performance in Golden State’s 128-120 victory over Oklahoma City. He added another feather to his already-brilliant résumé. 

Speaking on his teammates’ achievement, Thompson said that Steph with a height, a foot less than Wilt’s, is special. “Wilt Chamberlain’s one of the greatest athlete’s to ever walk this earth, so the fact that Steph was able to do that, and be a foot shorter than him, it’s special,” Thompson said. With 8:55 remaining in the third quarter, he passed Chamberlain with a driving scoop basket that increased the Warriors’ advantage to 71-52.

Stephen Curry answers questions about load management

Steph Curry offered his opinion on the load management discussion that has been raging throughout the league in recent weeks. He went off for 38 points, eight rebounds, and 12 assists in the Golden State Warriors 128-120 victory. “I campaign to play every game,” Curry said. “That’s the misconception about load management and how it goes. It’s never the player that’s saying…it’s usually not the player that’s going to the training staff and saying, ‘Hey, I don’t have it tonight.’ It’s usually the other way around and there’s a lot of science involved,” Curry said.

When the Warriors rested Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins for their lone trip to Cleveland to play the Cavaliers a game that came on the second night of a road back-to-back the Warriors came under fire. Warriors coach Steve Kerr suggested cutting the season to 72 games and referred to the choice as a “brutal part of the business.”
