Curry and his team have been to the Finals a lot over the last few seasons.
In fact, this is their sixth Finals appearance in eight years – a huge feat and a sign that this is one of the most talented franchises in NBA history.
Curry is a major part of that.

As one NBA fan points out, Curry is now 34 years old and is still averaging 32 points per game in the Finals.
To underline his skill, it’s important to see how the Boston Celtics – the best defensive team in the league – defend Curry.
Or, rather, how they try to defend Curry.
Curry Back In The Spotlight
Curry is definitely a few years older than his last Finals appearance.
Yet, it looks like no time at all has passed for the shooting superstar.
You would think he would have lost some speed, efficiency, or overall skill over the years but Curry doesn’t work like that.
It’s been said again and again but it bears repeating: there are few players who come to life like Curry in the Finals.
He just feels at home in this sort of environment – and it’s why he already has three rings.
Will he make it a fourth this year?
So far, he has 34 and 29 points respectively in games 1 and 2.
He is obviously feeling comfortable playing on such a big stage yet again.
But what will happen now that the Finals are moving to Boston?
Will he be able to keep up that output with a fired-up Celtics and their fanbase?
