Stephen Curry embraces leadership role with WarriorsPosted by Inside Hoops
“I’m 25. Still young. But I know the drill. I know the expectations,” Curry said in a chat with local media after working out at the team facility Thursday. “For me to have the same coaching staff, the same leadership, for three straight years is big. … We have the stability for us to make that move (to another level), and I hope to lead that charge.”
Certainly, Curry’s not alone in leading the locker room. David Lee and center Andrew Bogut share the leadership load, and Andre Iguodala figures to eventually emerge as a leader. But not even Curry’s reputed humility can help him escape the pedestal on which he is now perched.
He’s been a hot commodity since the season ended, making numerous appearances and joining James Harden in a Foot Locker commercial. His ability to exist anonymously in public places is rapidly decreasing. And now he’s considered by many to be the best player on a team expected to be a factor in the Western Conference.
And if that’s not enough of a reminder of his elevated status, his little brother is living with him. Seth Curry, who went undrafted out of Duke, signed with the Warriors last month. His star big brother encouraged him to save his money and move in.
