Question Was KD's acquisition delaying the envitable for Steph Curry's level of play?

That 2015-2016 godlike mode tier of performance seemed unsustainable. The wheels were coming off in the 2016 playoffs. His body isn't seemingly able to sustain that level of workload.

If not for acquiring KD, I don't think they'd have won in 2017... Despite winning 73 the year before and losing in 7.

He takes it tough with teams constantly attacking him on defense, hard screening him and being physical with him off the ball.

don't let Curry blowing a 3-1 lead distract you from the fact that in 1998, The Undertaker threw Mankind off Hell In A Cell, and plummeted 16 ft through an announcer's table

Warriors 5-1 this postseason when Curry doesn't play.

5-2 when he does...... with a giant choke job in clutch time tonight.
