Dillon Brooks was targeted by California fans for the foul that knocked out Gary Payton II. Brooks later said that Golden State's average age is advanced, compared to the youngest of his team. He said: "We are a very young team, while they are aging.
They know very well that they will have to contend with us every single season, from now on. 100%: Game-4 and Game-6 could have ended differently, because Ja is one of the best point guards in the league and her presence could have influenced the result.
Instead we had to get by with what we had. Battling two of the best shooters in the history of the game was great and it was definitely for us. a very useful lesson but also an excellent motivation for the future. In the summer we will treasure what we have lived and next year we will be ready to come back even more threatening.
" Stephen Curry said about Brooks: "He said a lot of crazy things throughout the series, already going so far as to call the Grizzlies a dynasty, just think. If he thinks so OK, we will advance to the conference finals."
Speaking of Curry, considered the best shooter in history and one of the best players ever, he holds the record for the highest number of triples scored in a season (402 in the 2015-2016 vintage) and the second for triples scored in a single game (13 on November 7, 2016, a record later surpassed by Klay Thompson).
In December 2021 becomes the player with the most triple scored in NBA history, beating the previous record of 2973 3-pointers belonging to Ray Allen. On December 28, 2021, in the game against the Denver Nuggets, he becomes the first and currently only player in NBA history to exceed 3,000 3-pointers scored in his career.
In ESPN's 2020 ranking, Curry ranks 13th in the ranking of the seventy-four best NBA players of all time. On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the birth of the NBA, at the beginning of the 2021/2022 season the league compiled a list of the 75 strongest players of all time, including Curry.
