Stephen Curry draws parallels to the Golden State Warriors’ youth and the Memphis Grizzlies’ young men

SAN FRANCISCO — Golden State Warriors superstar guard Stephen CurryAs he took his place at the podium, Curry was asked about going to Memphis as the older team and taking on the younger, more established team. Curry intervened before Curry could answer all the questions.

He stated, “I am still a child at heart.” “Youthful spirits.”

Curry could still pass as the Baby Faced Assassin but the truth is the Warriors are an old team. They are the more experienced team. They are the team with the most experience, despite the fact that they have a few players who have not been to the playoffs before.

On the other hand, the Grizzlies have never done that. It reminds me of the Warriors when they began the climb into their Dynastic Era.

Curry stated, “In terms of having a young core and trying to take that next step, winning playoff series… that was right in that window.” “We were enjoying some success, but not quite getting it done.”

Led by Ja MorantSupported by Desmond Bane, Jaren Jackson Jr. And Brandon ClarkeWith an average age of 24 years, the Grizzlies rank second in the league. Their oldest players include Steven AdamsAnd Kyle AndersonBoth are 28 years old.

The Warriors are reminded of the young team they built in the second round in 2013 when they faced San Antonio. LA ClippersIn the first round of 2014, before winning the title for 2014-15.

In the seasons preceding the Warriors' dynastic run of the Warriors, the Warriors were led at the time by a Curry (25 years old) and a Curry (23 years). Klay ThompsonAnd Draymond Green.

Two years ago, they were just another team playing in the NBA. They finished ninth in Western Conference, before COVID-19 suspended them. They finished eighth last season and defeated the Warriors in the playin game. Utah JazzThey won five of their last five games. They finished the season with the second-best league record.

Steve Kerr, Warriors coach, said that the team has built a solid foundation through player development, smart drafting and investment. He also noted that they are well-coached.

“If you pay attention, you can see what was happening with their player development. Ja, at first was great but has become a lot more. The Most Improved Player of the Year is won by guys like [Dillon]Brooks and [Brandon]Clarke, who are both young players who have grown leaps and bounds. Memphis has done a great job organizationally.

Golden State met Memphis in the Western Conference Semifinals, which was also the last time they faced each other in a playoff series. But that was 2015. But it was 2015. Mike ConleyMarc Gasol.

The Warriors won the title in that season thanks to that series. They see a lot of themselves in Memphis as they go into this series against the team who knocked them out of postseason a year back. The Warriors want Memphis to not have the same belief they had when they beat Memphis on their path to a championship.

Curry spoke of the lessons learned during their three-year tenure, reflecting back on the years that lead to their title run. “And I'm certain that's what they are going through. They don't need to know too much.
