Four things in life are certain: death, taxes, Stephen Curry being ridiculously good at basketball, and Golden State Warriors fans appreciating that Stephen Curry is ridiculously good at basketball.
In other words, Curry is November’s Warrior Wonder of the Month, and it isn’t even close. The Warriors played 14 games in November, and you, the Golden State of Mind community, voted him as Warrior Wonder in exactly half of those games. No other play received more than a single award during that time frame.
Part of this was due to Kevin Durant missing a handful of games in November, but much was due to an all-around stellar November by Curry. For the month, Curry averaged 24.8 points, 6.4 assists, 5.7 rebounds, and 1.8 steals per game.
Despite struggling with his shot, Curry still had a well above-league average true-shooting percentage of 60.3%, and the Warriors outscored opponents by 14 points per 100 possessions when he was on the court.
In other words, the award was very well deserved. He was October’s recipient, and now November’s recipient, and odds are he’ll be December’s, as well.
With November’s games in the rear-view mirror, here’s the Warriors Wonder count for the first 22 games of the season:
Stephen Curry: 11
Kevin Durant: 2
Klay Thompson: 2
Draymond Green: 1
Omri Casspi: 1
Nick Young: 1
Kevon Looney: 1
Shaun Livingston: 1
Patrick McCaw: 1
Third quarters: 1
To celebrate, let’s watch Steph Curry do basketball things. Steph Curry is good at basketball things.
