Stephen Curry is likely to play off the ball more during the 2014-15 season, according to associate head coach Alvin Gentry.

The' offseason addition of Shaun Livingston will the Warriors to take some of the ball-handling pressure off their star guard. "I don’t know if he wants the ball in his hands that much at all like it’s been in the past," Gentry said. "It’s very tiresome when you come down and basically have the ball 80 percent of the time and you’re creating shots and everything for yourself as well as other players." Curry could see a minor dip in his assists based on this news, but an increase in his scoring numbers will help him retain top-5 fantasy value for the 2014-15 season.

Stephen Curry said he's thought about playing for the Hornets in an interview on The Doug Gottlieb Show last week.

"I've always had thoughts about playing at home, what it would be like," Curry said. "My dad played there for 10 years, and people around the Greater Charlotte area in North Carolina have done a lot for my family growing up, so you always think about it." He still has three years left on his deal and mentioned he loved the Bay Area. Curry also added that he's a better offensive player than LeBron James in recent comments this week. While LeBron ranked third in the NBA for effective field goal percentage, Curry wasn't far behind at ninth. He was the No. 1 guard in fantasy basketball last season.

Stephen Curry said he expects the Warriors to open the 2014-15 season without any major roster shakeups.

Amid trade speculation that has involved several of his teammates headed to Minnesota for Kevin Love, Stephen Curry is confident that the Warriors will have the same roster that took the Clippers to Game 7 of the opening round of the 2013-14 playoffs. "It's a good thing that guys are wanted around the league and those conversations are happening," Curry said. "But there's a reason that we haven't made the trade, and I'm pretty sure guys are pretty confident in that and ready to come back to training camp ready to go."

Stephen Curry has put the Mark Jackson firing behind him, and he is now excited to go out and compete for a championship next season.

"We’re all excited about taking advantage of the window we have as a team," Curry said. "Coaches change, but when you have a unit and a core that’s going to be sticking together, it’s our job to take advantage of it regardless of the situation... We have our eyes set on a championship, and the lessons we learned this year we’re going to put to the test next year." The Warriors will need a healthy Andrew Bogut if they want to truly compete, but if they are able to land Love this offseason, they would certainly join the conversation as a true championship contender.

Stephen Curry said on Thursday that "it's huge," the Warriors keep shooting guard Klay Thompson for the long-term future.

"I love playing with him," Curry said. "He makes me better, and I try to make him better. How much better he’s gotten since Day 1 is kind of scary." Thompson will be a restricted free agent heading into the 2015 season and owner Joe Lacob has made clear the team intends on keeping him for the foreseeable future. Both Curry and Thompson had career years this past season and were top-10 fantasy options at their respective positions.

Stephen Curry said it's "good to know what the next direction is" for the Warriors on Thursday.

He did add the firing of Mark Jackson was "kind of stressful how it all went down." Coach Steve Kerr also called Curry before the news broke and the star point guard admitted he liked that. Curry was on Jackson's side before he was fired, but it sounds like Curry is going to embrace the change. Despite some schematic changes in Golden State, Curry is still arguably the most valuable guard in fantasy hoops.

The Warriors' first interview with head coach candidate Stan Van Gundy is "imminent," according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Knicks have emerged as the clear-cut favorite to hire Steve Kerr as their head coach, which eliminates one of Golden State's top options. The Warriors will reportedly interview Lionel Hollins in Chicago during the draft combine this week, and a handful of NCAA coaches and veteran NBA coaches remain as potential opposition to Van Gundy.

Stephen Curry scored a game-high 33 points vs. the Clippers during Game 7's 126-121 loss on Saturday, adding five boards, nine assists, three steals and three 3-pointers.

He made all 16 attempts from the line tonight and the Warriors' offense certainly wasn't the reason why they lost. They shot 14-of-25 from deep as a team, but 18 turnovers and some porous defense sent them home for the summer. Curry suffered a minor hamstring tweak, but it obviously won't affect his status in the offseason. He'll be a top-five pick in fantasy drafts next year.
May 4 - 1:53 AM

Stephen Curry made 9-of-24 from the field for 24 points during Game 6's 100-99 win over the Clippers on Thursday, adding four boards, nine assists and two 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

He only turned the ball over two times tonight, which has been a problem for Curry in these playoffs. The Warriors don't win ugly very often and were able to pull out a victory despite shooting just 39.3 percent from the field, including 7-of-24 from downtown. They will travel to Los Angeles and will be the NBA's third Game 7 of Saturday. We hope you get your weekend errands done early.

The Warriors had planned to boycott Tuesday's Game 5 in L.A., but they scrapped the plan once the NBA suspended Clippers' owner Donald Sterling "for life."

The Clippers may also have joined the Warriors in taking the court, positioning themselves for the jump ball, and then dramatically walking off the court en masse once the referee threw the ball in the air. Fortunately the protest was unnecessary because commissioner Adam Silver flexed his power to its fullest extent, banishing Sterling while pushing aggressively for the league's owners to force the sale of the Clippers' franchise.
Apr 30 - 9:40 AM

Stephen Curry scored just 17 points during Tuesday's 113-103 loss to the Clippers with three boards, four assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

Chris Paul continues to play solid defense on Curry which has kept him under 25 points in four of the five games in this series. However, the Warriors did enter tonight with an impressive 66 percent of their buckets coming via an assist, which was at 60 percent tonight. Curry and the Warriors did get 50 points in the paint tonight, but their inability to play defense and Curry's eight turnovers cost them tonight.

The Warriors will seek fans' input about possibly changing the franchise's name if they move to a new arena in San Francisco for the 2018-19 season.

The team was known as the San Fransisco Warriors from 1962-71 and team president Rick Welts said, "I couldn't imagine making that decision in the very near future, but we definitely want to see what our fans prefer." The new arena is expected to cost more than $1 billion and there are plenty of hurdles to clear before any re-branded Warriors team takes the court.

Stephen Curry was on fire during the first quarter of Game 4's win against the Clippers on Sunday, finishing with 33 points, seven boards, seven assists, one steal, one block and seven 3-pointers.

He was in video-game mode in the first quarter, making 5-of-5 from the field with all shots coming from deep -- good for a perfect 150.0 effective field goal percentage in that span. Curry's shot is as effortless as ever and today was his second-highest scoring output in a playoff game of his career. He was also guarding Chris Paul for almost the entire second half and turned in a gem on both ends. The Warriors will travel to Los Angeles for Game 5 on Tuesday with the series now tied 2-2.
Apr 27 - 7:03 PM

Stephen Curry couldn't get clean looks for much of Thursday's 98-96 loss to the Clippers, making 5-of-12 from the field for 16 points with two boards, 15 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He set a career playoff-high with his 15 dimes and this was the ninth time in any game he handed out that many. Curry had a chance to win the game at the buzzer, but Chris Paul was able to close out and deny Curry a good look from beyond the arc. He's been below his 17.7 shot-per-game average from the regular season in each of the three games and the Clippers are clearly trying to keep the sharp-shooting guard in check.
