Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is one of the greatest basketball players of all time.
With nine All-Star appearances, two MVPs, four championships, and a place on the NBA 75th Anniversary Team, Curry has accomplished so much during his 14 years in the league.
But the man is now 35 years old, which means he is definitely coming closer to the end of his career.
Richard Jefferson spoke about this on the Road Trippin’ Show, per ClutchPoints, and said he thinks Curry still has a few years left to win his fifth championship.
“I don’t know if it’s this year. I think he’s got three or four more years as a primary player because of his skill,” Jefferson said.

If it really does take four more years, that would mean Curry will be 39 when he wins his next trophy.
That would be quite the feat and made all the more remarkable because of Curry’s age.
When you look at his numbers, the idea of Curry winning another championship doesn’t sound so far-fetched.
Last season, he averaged 29.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 6.3 assists.
He still has a field goal percentage of 49.3% and a three-point percentage of 42.7%.
Curry might be a bit older but he’s not playing any worse.
However, if he is going to win another Finals before he retires, he will need the rest of his team to play incredibly well too.
Last season was definitely not their best and they had a slew of problems – and a shockingly bad record on the road.
They made some adjustments in the summer, including bringing in Chris Paul.
Will Paul’s excellent shooting and leadership skills take some of the pressure off Curry?
If that happens, he will have more gas in the tank for the next few years and could definitely last until he’s 39 – or even beyond.NEXT: Reporter Names Warriors' Top Priority After Dwight Howard Decision
