Stephen Curry hopes to be a Golden State Warrior for life.
Four years ago, Curry was disappointed that he wasn’t drafted by the Knicks; now, he worries that a new arena will alter the makeup of the Warriors’ notoriously rowdy fan base.
"No offense to New York, but I'm so, so happy I didn't fall to them in the draft," Curry said. "No matter what they do with the new arena, they better not change the dynamics of the fan base. If we have the same fans, in this new place … man, I'd want to play here forever. Wouldn't you?"
Curry is overwhelmed by the support he's received since leading the Warriors to the second round.
"You wanna know how much this place loves their Warriors?" Curry said. "We made it to the conference semifinals and they gave me a freaking key to the city. The key to the city! For the semis! If we'd have won the title, they'd have put a statue of coach Jackson on top of the bridge."
