Steph Curry is a one-of-a-kind Superstar. He is one of the greatest players in the world, but also one of the humblest.
While speaking on The Lowe Post, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr provided a very shocking example of Steph Curry’s humility during the Denver Nuggets series where Curry came off the bench.
“First round against Denver, he was coming off that injury and limited to twenty minutes a game, we got him off the bench,” Kerr said. “After game one the minutes were going up, after game two he’s going to be close to 30. At that point I go up to him and I’m like, ‘Steph, if you want to start, you’re Steph Curry, you can start if you want.'”
“Steph was just like, actually, ‘we’re playing great, Jordan’s on great pace, we’re up 2-0, keep going. Let’s keep it going.'” Kerr said. “He was perfectly content to come off the bench.”
“We completely joked about it for the next two days,” Kerr said. “I remember the starting lineups as the starters were being called in Game 2 or Game 3, he was standing next to me and I turned next to him and said, ‘You know, Steph , if you work hard enough, one day you too can start an NBA playoff game. He laughed, and then the next few days as he trained and worked, he said to himself, “Look at me, coach! Look how hard I work! I deserve it, I know I can do it!” “”
“So it’s Steph, which could be a serious problem with other star players, it turns into a complete joke for him.”
It’s a really candid and honest example from Steve Kerr of how humble Steph Curry is. He is a rare example of an unselfish first-team superstar.
