The team is finally sitting above .500 in the West with a 13-12 record and it’s possible that they have finally worked out the kinks and are starting to look good again.
It may be too soon to tell regarding that but no one can deny Curry’s greatness.

Because of it, Curry was just named as Sports Illustrated 2022 Sportsperson of the Year.
This is the second time that Curry has won the honor and he now joins Tom Brady, LeBron James, and Tiger Woods as the only other multiple winners.
Curry has surely earned the award when you look back on all he has done this year.
The question is: what will he do in the months ahead?
Curry On The Cover
Curry helped lead his Warriors to the Finals yet again back in the spring of 2022 and they eventually triumphed over the Boston Celtics.
As expected, Curry’s fingerprints were all over the series and he got to hoist the Finals MVP trophy over his head for the first time.
That success alone would have been enough to earn Sportsperson of the Year but Curry has done even more.
So far this season, Curry is averaging 30 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 7 assists on 49.9% from the field and 43.2% from the three-point line.
These are incredible numbers for any player, but especially one in his 13th year.
Curry is the most – and possibly only – reliable player for his team right now and has been pouring his heart out every single night, leading to speculation that he might be in contention for regular season MVP again.
The man just doesn’t slow down and Sports Illustrated has recognized that.
