The Anthony's have torn it up during Summer League and I'm def excited to see what they add to the young Dubs squad during the season. But I think we're all a little underwhelmed by Stephs play during the last few games. But today, one thing stood out to me that was writtin in a True Hoops story.
At the conclusion of the Warriors/Hornets game, a crowd of kids gathers to try and get an autograph from Morrow. Morrow finishes with media and throws his jersey into the throng of kids, only to have them lunge at it and break the security barricade fighting for it. A younger fan desperately clutches the jersey while another fan struggles to rip it away from him.
While this scene is unfolding, I am interviewing Steph Curry and the two of us stop to watch what's going on. We are both a little unsure of what to do to comfort the boy who is about to cry. Curry then stops the interview, goes over and gives the boy who lost out on the jersey his game-worn shoe.
Now I know this doesn't count for Points/Stats/ Or Wins when it's all said and done. Which is how he'll be measured by us the fans in the long haul. But in hearing Curry speak to the media and seeing the type of leadership and character he brings to the team. I have to say it's refreshing to feel like we have something that will, in time, develop into what this and every team needs. Players that care about they fans of the sport, and the people who support them. Aside from the required "NBA Cares" commercials.
So though some of you may be disappointed in his debut performance, we should all realize that along w/ the performances that AR and Ammo have put together, Steph's should also be taking w/ a grain of salt. He's young, new and brings a good energy to the squad.
So I hope that if nothing else, he follows in the line of fan favorite Warriors like JR and Adonal. Guys who give it all because they KNOW we care.
Here's the link to the rest of it....
