Stephen Curry defends his team from old Veterans’ talk

Brett Davis USA Today

Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry said he had enough talk from NBA veterans about beating his team, according to

Curry said talk from veterans is “annoying” and “unwarranted.” The reigning-MVP said he and his teammates do not talk about beating other teams from other decades.

Currently, Curry leads the Warriors with a 52-5 record.  The Warriors are on pace for the best record in NBA history. Curry’s team is currently one game above the 96 Chicago Bulls‘ pace in their record 72-10 season. 

Nonetheless, the Warriors were targeted by NBA great Oscar Robertson on ESPN’s Mike & Mike. The legendary guard said the team flourishes thanks to a less physical league than back in the day. Robertson’s teammate with the Milwaukee Bucks, Kareem Abdul-Jabaar agreed.  

Retired NBA stars Stephen Jackson and Cedric Ceballos also went on record saying their teams could beat the Warriors. 

Regardless, Curry said he and his team live in the moment and enjoy playing with each other.
