Steve Kerr and Steph Curry

Steph Curry will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, and his legacy needs no further introduction. And while it’s too early to say, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr already puts Curry up there alongside Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kobe Bryant, and all the all-time greats who never switched teams.

A Warrior for life

Earlier this year, Curry officially surpassed NBA Hall of Famer Chris Mullin as the record-holder of most games played as a Warrior with 808 career games. When asked about his star player’s another incredible feat, Kerr shockingly admitted that for him, it was the most meaningful record Steph broke.

According to Kerr, he had seen Curry break an array of records but to be the most active Dubs player of all time “signifies his loyalty to the franchise and vice versa.

Steph has done so many things, and there are so many records that they run into each other,” Kerr said via NBC Sports. “[But] I love that particular record just because it signifies his loyalty to the franchise and vice versa, the love affair that exists between Steph and the Bay… You don’t see this an awful lot.

Kerr further pointed out that he thinks Curry “takes a lot of pride” in representing Golden State, and the franchise feels the same way too, “so that record is a reminder of how lucky we are to have him as our cornerstone of the franchise.

Steph’s legacy looks familiar

As for how he sees Curry’s overall qualities and impact on the game from a coach and former player’s point of view, Kerr once said that Steph’s legacy resembles that of someone he used to know- a certain former teammate named Michael Jordan.

He’s reminding me of MJ in that you just get so used to the brilliance and the excellence, it sort of blends in with everything else,” Kerr said of Curry. “It just becomes routine. It’s insane to say that because what you’re watching is otherworldly, and yet you sort of begin to expect it. That’s probably the purest sign of greatness.

When you win the NBA championship four times with a player, it’s only fitting to rave about him. That has been the case for Kerr and Curry in Golden State. But regardless if there’s some bias in there, or if Steph suddenly decides to leave the Warriors in the future, we can still agree with Kerr on one thing- Curry is a Warriors icon.
