Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry says he is feeling great both physically and mentally ahead of the new season as he is aiming to have a big bounce back year. Curry, a three-time NBA champion and two-time NBA MVP, broke his hand four games into the 2019/2020 season and that basically eliminated the Warriors from the playoff contention.
Curry returned to the lineup toward the end of the season as the Warriors finished the season with the league-worst record of 15-50. “I'm ready to roll. Nice and rested. We've got a great opportunity to come back strong," Curry said on TNT's The Match.
"We're excited to get back out there and compete ... Looking forward to it. We got practice tomorrow. Going to enjoy this last round for sure."
Curry could get the boost from the crowd
Curry is the most beloved player on the Warriors and he is also a fan favorite around the league.
Recently, Warriors owner Joe Lacob proposed a plan which would allow the team to host a 50 percent fan capacity at Chase Center. "I not only want to get this done and show the world how we can do it now, I'm willing to spend the money to do it," Lacob said, per ESPN.
"This is a serious, serious problem. It cannot go on for multiple years ... because if this were to go on for several years, the NBA is no more. "You cannot sustain this league with no fans. You can do it for a year.
We'll all get by for a year. But suppose we're in this situation next year. Now we're talking some serious, serious financial damage to a lot of people." Lacob just wants a chance as he said: "Let us prove the concept.
Let us use our money, our resources, our seven-eight months of work, our expertise to prove the concept. That's what I'm trying to get the state, the city and the government to entertain. "This [rapid PCR] test is orders of magnitude more accurate than the [rapid antigen] test at the [White House] Rose Garden event.
This is the best you can do. A lot of people don't even know these tests exist yet, and they are ramping them up. "By springtime, the rapid PCR tests will be manufactured in amounts nearing 100,000 per day by some of these companies.
But I'm trying to show the world, trying to show the sports world in particular, and California, a way to do this. A safe way to have people come to an event and be totally safe walking in that building. The numbers bear it out."
