On the eve of game 5 of the NBA finals between Golden State and the Boston Celtics, Steve Kerr, the coach of the Warriors, notably mentioned the very great current form of Stephen Curry.
The 2021-22 NBA season is about to come to an end. In the meantime, on the night of Monday to Tuesday, the Golden State Warriors welcome the Boston Celtics, as part of Game 5 of the NBA Finals, while the two franchises are currently tied (2-2). In the meantime, Steve Kerr, the coach of the Californian franchise, went through the traditional press conference. And the Warriors coach has long mentioned the case of a certain Stephen Curry, in very good shape. An incredible form which was seen in particular during the previous match, won by Golden State in Boston (107-97), when the main interested party, now 34 years old, had then scored no less than 43 points. Either his very best match in an NBA final since the start of his career, for the one who has already won three titles, in 2015, 2017 but also in 2018, without forgetting two MVP trophies in the regular season, in 2015 then in 2016 , but never yet in the NBA Finals.
“He has his routine”
After four games already played in these finals, Curry is averaging 34.3 points. Its very great shape is therefore no longer in doubt. In this regard, Steve Kerr certainly had an explanation, in comments reported by theAFP : “ He has his routine, he’s like a metronome. Every day it’s exactly the same. He is in the training room, then weight training, he is on the ground. It is regulated like a clock. But there is also a feeling of joy, which energizes him in this work. I think that’s one of the things that connects all great athletes, the Roger Federers, the Steph Currys… There’s a routine that’s not only super-disciplined but really enjoyed every day. There is a passion that accompanies this, which lasts and which makes it possible to improve even more. »
