Draymond Green has shed some light on one of the lesser-appreciated facets of Steph Curry’s remarkable career.
35 years old and still going strong, Curry’s remarkable longevity is a feat matched only by luminaries such as LeBron James and Chris Paul. According to Green, a key ingredient in Curry’s enduring success lies in his unwavering passion for the game.
“He’s one of the most special people you can be around and when you look at Steph, he smiles, he’s the golden child, he’s all of these things but underneath all of that there’s like a never-dying passion that’s just burning, raging,” Green said on Sirius XM NBA Radio.
“He works as hard as I’ve ever seen anyone whether that’s in the weight room, the basketball court… He’s trying to defeat age! Every day I come in and watch him and it’s like this dude continues to work hard. This dude’s trying to defeat age. We all know Father Time is undefeated but we’re beating those odds right now.”
Curry is coming off an excellent 2022-23 season, during which he averaged 29.4 points, 6.3 assists, and 6.1 rebounds on 49.3 percent shooting from the field and 42.7 percent from long range.
