Steph Curry Father Dell Curry Drops Bombshell Prediction on Steph Future in…

Though Stephen Curry’s dazzling NBA Finals performance has generated discussion about the duration of his career, all we know for certain is that the end is not in sight.S

“I would say another eight to 10 years,” ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins says.

That would put Curry, 34, well into his 40s. Slow down, Perk. Though it’s not impossible, it is highly improbable.

Don’t completely dismiss the prospects of Steph playing until age 40, though, says Dell Curry.

“Watching him play at 34, he can stay at his level and be this productive on the floor,” he tells NBC Sports Bay Area. “He might not score 30 a game, but you’re going to have to guard him. That’s important to have on your team, someone you have to guard. It makes things easier on your teammates.

“He still has the drive. He wants to win more. He’s hungry to win more. So, he definitely can play at this level for several years to come.”
Playing to age 40 is possible. To cite a recent example, Vince Carter was 43 when he retired two years ago. And his game was based largely on superior athleticism, which generally declines while approaching 40.

A better comparison might be John Stockton, who was a starter for the Jazz when he retired at 41.

Curry, like Stockton, is a point guard who relies less on extraordinary athleticism than skill, guile, and fitness. Dallas Mavericks coach Jason Kidd, who retired at 40, considers Steph “the best-conditioned athlete in this game.”

The offseason for Curry, when he dives into grueling sessions with personal trainer Brandon Payne, is a time for sharpening his body, which has developed significantly from his early years in the NBA. He was 6-foot-2, 180 pounds as a rookie. His height has not changed, but he has added at least 10 pounds of muscle, mostly to his upper body. The result is wiry strength.

“I’ve seen it up close and personal every summer,” Dell Curry says. “Two-a-day workouts. Before everyone in the house wakes up, he’s already got one in.”

Dell played 16 years in the NBA before retiring in 2002, a few weeks before he turned 38. He knows both of his sons, Steph and Seth, want to surpass 16 seasons in the league.

Dell Curry was known for his outside shot — well, of course — and shooters tend to endure. Dale Ellis retired at 39, Ray Allen one month before turning 39, and Reggie Miller three months before turning 40.

Curry’s current contract triggers next season and runs through 2025-26. He’ll be 38 and will have played 17 seasons.

“I know 16 (seasons) was the number for both of them because that’s how long I played,” Dell says. “But now if you ask them, they both want to play longer than that. To say, ‘Dad, got you again.’

“He’s got a four-year deal coming up. He can easily play at this level to fulfill that contract.”

Steph doesn’t dare put a number on his remaining years as a player. It might be four. It might be six. Eight is ambitious, 10 practically dreamy.

There was no sign whatsoever of a slowdown last season, so Steph remains very much in his prime. As long as people question his capability, he’ll be motivated to keep going.

2022 NBA Preseason Injury Update For Grizzlies Star As The List Of Players That Won’t Be Available Tonight Revealed

Given the nature of Morant’s injury, surgery was not required. Multiple weeks of rest were suggested and it has been nearly 4 months since he’s played NBA basketball. When looking at the injury reports for the Grizzlies, Ja Morant does not show up on CBS Sport’s list. 

Jaren Jackson Jr, Danny Green, and Killian Tille are the 3 Grizzlies who are expected to be out for the preseason. When it comes to the Murray State, you can expect him to play against the Bucks. He’s even given his opinion on this 2022 NBA Preseason, saying:

“We take preseason as out training camp. Even though we got games coming up, there’s still time for us to install some things, time to get better in certain areas, and continue to grow in areas that we’re good at.” 

Looks like the former Rookie of the Year is more than amped up to take to the floor following an unceremonious exit from last season’s Playoffs.

Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies were quite the surprise team during the 2021-22 NBA season. Finishing with the second best record in a loaded Western Conference and snagging 56 wins, they would not only make the Playoffs but have home court advantage in it.

Lakers held an open scrimmage on Saturday and the only player to sit out was Anthony Davis as teammate LeBron James showed off his athleticism with some massive dunks.

Davis, 29, practiced ahead of the team’s preseason opener Monday against the Sacramento Kings but missed the open scrimmage.

He told the media afterwards that he did participate in the closed door scrimmage and played alongside Russell Westbrook and King James on the purple team.

Lakers head coach Darvin Ham said it’s possible that James, Davis and Westbrook will get some minutes in the preseason opener.

While Westbrook will likely still run the floor, Coach Ham has a plethora of options to start at the point guard position.

Kencrick Nunn looks like he will become the team’s starting point guard ahead of Dennis Schroeder.

Despite Nunn missing all of last season due to injury, Schroeder has yet to arrive in Los Angeles due to some issues with his visa.

Steph Curry proves he’s still the ‘petty king’ once again as he shades ESPN model

Earlier this week, ESPN came out with a model that predicts the Warriors will struggle to an eighth seed in the Western Conference and have to compete in the play-in tournament.

Never afraid to show his petty side, Curry commented on an Instagram post about the projection.

“14% chance to win the finals last year too,” he commented, in reference to an earlier ESPN prediction, which had given the Boston Celtics an 86% chance of winning the 2021-22 NBA Finals. The Warriors, of course, defeated the Celtics in six games.

In ESPN’s defense, lead analyst Kevin Pelton was quick to disavow the projection as soon as it was made public.

“I expect Golden State to outperform this projection and be back near the top of the West,” Pelton wrote about his own projection.

After winning it all last season, Curry gleefully called out everyone from the Boston bar that gave out “Ayesha Curry can’t cook” shirts to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, who slighted the Warriors for their payroll, to noted Draymond Green nemesis Kendrick Perkins.

“We hear all of that. You carry it all and try to maintain your purpose, not let it distract you, but you carry that weight,” Curry said about his revenge spree. “And then you get here, and it all comes out.”

If Curry takes inspiration from being doubted, then the ESPN model, which thinks the Warriors will essentially be a .500 team, is just the thing to get the reigning NBA Finals MVP ready for the upcoming season.

The Warriors’ title defense begins later this month when they host the Los Angeles Lakers at Chase Center on Oct. 18.
