371

The premier player for the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry, isn’t afraid to voice his opinions, especially when it comes to playing time. 

After a recent loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, where Curry spent a significant portion of the fourth quarter on the bench, he didn’t hold back his dissatisfaction.

Despite delivering an impressive performance with a game-high 31 points, Curry found himself benched during crucial moments of the game, ultimately contributing to the Warriors’ loss. Head coach Steve Kerr defended his decision, citing the need to manage Curry’s workload carefully to prevent overexertion and keep him fresh for the long haul.

Curry stated, “I want to play as many minutes as I’m fresh and able to,” emphasizing his desire to be on the court when his team most needs him. He stressed the need to strike a balance between playing time and recuperation in order to increase their chances of winning.

Curry’s worries go beyond his own playing time, as the Warriors are now ranked No. 10 in the Western Conference. He understands how vulnerable the club is and how important it is for them to improve in order to stay out of the NBA Play-in Tournament.
