Steph Curry gives his take on what he felt when he missed the Playoffs and said that it was “hard for him to watch”.
The Golden State Warriors and the NBA Finals were two terms that were quite synonymous with one another for the past half decade. Steph Curry led the Warriors to 5 straight Finals trips, out of which three were topped off with the Larry O’Brien trophy.
However, due to a slew of unfortunate injuries and Kevin Durant’s departure from the Bay Area, the Warriors have fallen out of title contention. Atleast that is what is being perceived of the current iteration of the Warriors.
Steph Curry has become accustomed to postseason success. So for him to miss out on the Playoffs last season, it must’ve been a strange feeling.
Steph Curry opens up about not making the NBA Finals.
An avid golf enthusiast, Steph Curry was on the Callaway Golf Podcast recently. He revealed what he felt upon missing the playoffs:
“It was hard to watch, but I did. It’s a little bit of everything. It’s me missing the game and just being a fan of the game and just wanting to watch good basketball. It’s a little bit of scouting, in terms of being one of the two teams playing in the Finals.”
He then reminisced about the Warriors’ past success, saying, “We went to the Finals 5 years in a row. I know the backdrop in Orlando was different, but it’s still the NBA Finals.”
Can Steph Curry lead the Warriors to a top 4 seed in the West?

The Warriors, as presently constructed, are in position to bag a bottom 4 seed in the West. With teams like the Lakers, Clippers, Blazers, and the Nuggets, all being quite formidable, there will be a lot on Curry’s shoulders this season.
Curry did show out in limited minutes in the preseason. For the Warriors to be real threats out West, Curry will need to play like an MVP.
