Steph Curry was the first player in NBA history to earn a unanimous vote for league MVP,
but one Golden State Warriors coach believes his performance last year may
have actually topped that season.
Curry bounced back from a season-ending injury in 2019-20
to turn in a pair of MVP-caliber seasons. After he won the scoring title in 2020-21
with a career-high 32.0 points per game, Curry led the Warriors to a title
last season with a 25.5 points-per-game average.
As Warriors player development coach Bruce Fraser said
it might have been the best season of Curry’s career when going beyond the numbers.
Appearing on the “Murph & Mac” show on KNBR, Fraser said that Curry showed a great deal of maturity
last season as he led a youth-infused squad. The Warriors assistant coach
noted how Curry has been able to evolve his scoring, which sets an example for younger players like James Wiseman.
