While Stephen Curry has won two MVPs, he believes he may be entering his absolute prime.
“I hope it is,” Curry told The Athletic. “You go through this NBA journey and every year you learn something else about yourself, about your team, about being an NBA player. Using all that experience to my advantage, the work you put in off the court in the summertime to get yourself ready. I don't know exactly where the peak is, but I do think I'm the best version of myself to date.”
Curry was asked whether he would like to compete for an MVP again this season.
“That's such a tough question,” Curry said. “Because obviously, everybody wants to be in that conversation, wants to get votes and be recognized for having the best year individually. But when I won my first two, that wasn't what I was playing for. I don't have that perspective — oh, I need to go play for an MVP. Really, when Tuesday happens, my mentality is to help my team win games, be aggressive, play my best basketball and usually that means good things will happen individually and as a team. If I have to trade off a couple MVP votes for a championship, so be it. But hopefully I can be in the conversation for both.”
