Stephen Curry may play off ball more under Coach KerrPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Bay Area News Group blog reporting on Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry:
Warriors guard Stephen Curry has high hopes after becoming an All-Star for the first time last season.
“I’m trying to establish myself as the best point guard in the league, and just that that quest for a championship is something that I value highly,” Curry told CBS Sports Radio on Wednesday.
New coach Steve Kerr, who as a TNT broadcaster gave Curry a vote for the All-NBA second team last season, will look to help his star player get there by taking some pressure off the guard who carried the load for Mark Jackson’s offense.
According to associate head coach Alvin Gentry, that means taking the ball out of Curry’s hands more often with big men doing more passing so that the All-Star doesn’t have to work as hard every night to score.
