Stephen Curry: “I’ve always had thoughts about playing at home”
Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry has been generating some news lately for the hoops blogosphere. Or, maybe it’s August and basketball news has come to a halt. Nevertheless, Curry kicked off the drama yesterday when he made some heads turn while making a call-in on the Dan Patrick Show. Curry replied that he was a better offensive player than LeBron James when asked by Patrick. Let the debate being on that…
Although the “who’s better than” chatter might not appeal to some fans and analysts, Curry did make a strong statement that might have gone under the radar. That’s because a week earlier on the Doug Gottlieb Show, Curry expressed his feelings about one day playing back home.
Via Inside Bay Area:
The subject was raised to Curry on The Doug Gottlieb Show last week when asked if watching what James did would lead him to consider playing for his hometown Charlotte Hornets.“I’ve always had thoughts about playing at home, what it would be like,” said Curry, who is in the middle of a four-year, $44 million contract extension with the Warriors. “My dad played there for 10 years, and people around the Greater Charlotte area in North Carolina have done a lot for my family growing up, so you always think about it.
“Right now I feel like I’ve got three years left on my deal, so this isn’t going to be an issue for me for a while. I love the Bay Area and where we are as a team trying to win a championship, and that’s what it’s all about. Of course everybody dreams about or thinks about what it’s going to be like to play at home. Obviously if that opportunity comes along it’s a different discussion.”
