It looks like Stephen Curry is counting the days to call it quits and retire from basketball. Speaking as a panelist at TechCrunch Disrupt on Wednesday night in San Francisco, Curry talked about why he’s so interested in investing in startups.

He claimed every NBA player should think about what they’re going to do after they retire from the game. The two-time MVP explained to the crowd in San Francisco he would like to play around another six years in the NBA before calling it time and start to do different things in his life:

“Being in the NBA, this is a very short period of my life — from 21 so hopefully I can play for like another six years,” Curry said, via NBC Sports Bay Area. “And then you think about what you want to do the rest of your life. And we’re hopefully setting up the groundwork and the framework for success in this space and doing it our way.

“Really enjoying the ride and I’ve been fortunate to have a great team behind me that’s on this journey with me.”

Curry has been one of the best players in the league in recent years. He made it to the association back in 2009, improving his level every season to become the great figure he is right now. Throughout his career, he’s averaged 23.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists with the Warriors while shooting 47.7 percent from the field, 43.6 percent from beyond the arc and 90.5 percent from the free-throw line.

Widely regarded as the greatest shooter of all time, Curry, a 3x NBA champion has known how to leave his mark in the game.
