Steph Curry has no plans to follow Thompson and quit Golden State

The 36-year-old said it "sucks" not to be a team-mate of Thompson

Steph Curry has no plans to follow Klay Thompson and quit the Golden State Warriors.

The 36-year-old has spent 15 years with the franchise after making his debut in 2009, winning four NBA titles and earning a reputation as arguably the greatest three-point shooter of all time.

Much of the Warriors’ success was built around a core of Curry, Draymond Green and Thompson, who last week departed for the Dallas Mavericks.

Curry has two years left on his contract and intends to see out his career in the Bay Area.

He told ESPN: “Being in one place for my own career, and it’s like a broken record, but I know it’s really hard to do that. 

“I want to be greedy and say we can be relevant and be in the mix and give ourselves a realistic chance to win while I’m still growing these gray hairs and doing high school visits in the Bay [Area] for my daughter. 

“It’s crazy. [It’s] just the nature of where I’m at. But yes, all that to say I love the Bay and the Bay is home and I never want that to change.”

Curry does not believe a dynasty like they one he played a huge part in at the Warriors will ever be repeated.

“I mean obviously defining a dynasty can take a lot of different looks,” Curry added. “People thought this was over in 2019 … but 2022 was an amazing championship because we defied the odds … That’s 11 years of almost 12 years of championship relevancy built around a certain core.

“I don’t think [it will be replicated] just because it’s very hard to keep things together in this league. A lot more player movement. Me, Klay and Draymond, we complemented each other so well for so long. We all brought something different to the table, so we’ll see. 

“Records are meant to be broken. Dynasties come all different shapes inside of us, so we’ll see.

“We would’ve loved to maintain the core and finish out together. So you have to be able to celebrate what we accomplished and be able to move.”
