The iconic point guard had been experiencing injuries more often and was aging like we all are.
Some were wondering if his best days were behind him.
Despite a few rough patches through the season, Curry was playing smooth as butter this season, averaging 25.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 6.3 assists.
He also became the all-time three-point leader in NBA history and helped get his team to the Finals again.

So, yes, Curry has been terrific and any worries about him falling off were unfounded.
He knows how good he’s been.
In fact, he thinks he’s the best he’s ever been.
Speaking with Malika Andrews, Curry said, “I feel like I’m in my prime.”
It’s hard to argue with that.
Curry Cooking (Again)
One of Curry’s best features is his ability to step it up even more during the playoffs.
He’s always been a terrific postseason player and that’s no different this year.
He has been a pivotal part of his team’s run through the playoffs and has been a vital part of each series.
So far in the Finals, Curry has been MVP-worthy, scoring 34 points in Game 1 and 29 in Game 2.
If he keeps playing like that, he really will be receiving his first Finals MVP trophy.
Yes, despite winning three Finals, that award has always eluded Curry.
But that might not be the case this year if the Warriors take out the Celtics and win it all.
Boston won’t go without a fight so Curry will need to keep playing amazingly if he wants to secure victory.
Based on what we’ve seen lately, don’t expect him to stop playing well any time soon.
