Warriors general manager Bob Myers told KGO-TV he dined with Stephen Curry earlier this week and that after a coaching change, the star player was “in a good place.”
“He’s fine,” Myers said Thursday of Curry, who was fiercely loyal to former coach Mark Jackson and has accepted the hiring of Steve Kerr.
Myers said he discussed with Curry an area for the All-Star and All-NBA point guard to improve upon after averaging career highs of 24 points and 8.5 assists per game this season.
“Look, he’s fantastic in pretty much every category, so it’s hard to really nitpick, but what we talked about was finding a way to get your teammates going when they’re struggling a little bit,” Myers said. “Because he has clearly shown that he can dominate a game and get his shot whenever he wants to and obviously get high assists, but just learning how to lead, continuing to lead and maybe pick up a player when he’s struggling.”
Curry said last month he wanted to improve on his decision-making after committing too many turnovers.
“The best thing about him is that he’s helped us win, really,” Myers said. “A lot of people have wanted this organization the Warriors to get back to the playoffs, and he’s been a big part of that. And that’s the best to have — a player of his caliber, a person with his character and also leading to wins, which is great.”
