The two-time MVP is one of the most valuable players in the NBA, everything he does influences winning for the Warriors.
Curry is not at the top of the MVP conversation due to the 11 games he missed.
But, you would be hard-pressed to find someone more valuable.
This stat shows the Warriors’ offensive rating when he is on the floor compared to his being off the court.

Going from the best offense in the NBA to the worst because of one player is crazy.
That is the definition of the most valuable player.
Curry will once again be counted on to pull the Warriors out of the current rut they are in.
Golden State has a record of 21-21 on the year, and they are currently tied for sixth in the Western Conference.
Other than his all-time great shooting, Curry, is a great distributor and floor spacer for the Warriors.
Opposing teams are so focused on not letting him get open that they leave one of his Warriors teammates wide open.
All of those things go into the fact that their offensive rating skyrockets with number 30 on the floor.
But, Curry is the longest-tenured Warriors player and he sets the tone for the whole organization.
Curry is one of the most impactful players in NBA history, and Golden State needs him on the floor as much as possible.
