Returning home seems to be always a popular storyline in NBA circles these days. LeBron James went home to play with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Kevin Durant is expected by some to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and sign with his hometown Washington Wizards. Now, Stephen Curry is the following superstar to be coaxed into speaking about his hometown team.
Throughout a game contrary to the Charlotte Hornets, Curry told reporters that he “thought about” playing for them. He said that he feels right at home playing for the Golden State Warriors, but that it may be “fun” to play there.
This isn’t the first time Curry has made comments about his hometown. He talked about it this summer when interviewed for a CBS radio show. He talked about playing before his life long family and friends. It is a thing that is going to draw these superstar athletes if you find a max put in place. They know exactly how much they are going to make, so why not make it home?
A lot of solace shouldn’t be taken into these comments. He knows he’s sufficient time to play in California. Curry is currently signed through the 2016-17 season for a really team-friendly contract. He isn’t going anywhere soon, but it’s fun to dissect these comments. After LeBron, everyone will undoubtedly be trying to find NBA superstars to look into playing for his or her hometown.
The world will need to wait until 2017 to see whether there is any weight to these comments. For now, they’re just answers at a press conference that have no meaning.
