Even though he hasn’t been playing, he has still been very involved with the Warriors.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Stephen Curry's individual brilliance this season has somehow elevated him even more.

What many thought would be a wasted season for Steph Curry may somehow wind up elevating him, as his individual brilliance should shut up any critics forever.

In a way, what Curry has been able to accomplish in leading this year’s Warriors team does more for him than playing on another all-time great team would’ve. Because for someone who really had nothing left to prove, he has proven one thing...he’s still that dude.

And any notion he can’t carry a team has been completely debunked, given that it should be clear to anyone Golden State might be the worst team in the league without him, which is why he deserves serious MVP consideration even with them currently only being the eighth seed.

Michael and Phil. Magic and Riley. LeBron and—Um…

  Michael and Phil. Magic and Riley. LeBron and—Um… The days of great star-coach partnerships are largely gone from the NBA. Has something been lost? Steve Kerr, ever the statesman, won’t say which team or which player the Warriors chose to torment one fine evening back in January—only that he saw a chance to unleash Stephen Curry, one of the greatest offensive weapons in basketball history, on some poor, overmatched defender.“We wanted to pick on a certain matchup,” Kerr recalls. “And so the first four or five minutes of the game, we said, ‘Let’s run pick and roll against this guy for five straight minutes.

I don’t want to see him in a middling sort of situation forever, but this one year will forever be special, given he’s shown to be the most exciting player in the NBA. And it was appropriate that he was just featured on a superhero broadcast since one can’t help but marvel at what Curry is able to do out on the court. We’re not just watching the greatest shooter to ever do it, we’re also seeing one of the greatest players of all-time period.

Draymond Green is probably correct when he said that other teams are terrified of Curry, and while he may have their fear, he should have everyone’s respect.

Given that no matter what might happen once they get there if Curry is able to lead the Warriors into the playoffs, this season is already a win for him.

Steph Curry is in a battle to make the playoffs and the fans are the beneficiaries .
If basketball wasn’t a sport, this John Mayer solo over Eric Clapton’s “Promises” could be Stephen Curry right now, dancing on the canvas laid out by his predecessors, pushing an old form to new limits. This is what it was like to watch Curry in the 2015-16 season, when the Golden State Warriors broke the record books with 73 wins and he won a unanimous MVP. The Warriors are the ninth seed in the West despite Curry’s greatness, and their playoff fate will likely be determined by the play-in tournament. Some things feel the same. Others, as with any nostalgic experience, remind you just how different it is.
