Steve Kerr Says Steph Curry Is "At His Peak"

With the injury to Klay Thompson and the departure of Kevin Durant, the Golden State Warriors are facing a unique situation on their journey to the history books.

By all accounts, it is the end of an era for the Warriors -- but does it have to be the end of their run?

So long as they have Steph, Klay, and Draymond, the Warriors should be poised to contend for many years to come. Curry will be the key, of course, and (according to Warriors coach Steve Kerr), he is at his absolute peak.

"To me, he's at his peak physically, mentally," Kerr said via ESPN. "He's seen every defense that people have thrown at him now during his career, and he's ready to have a great year.

"He's in his prime age-wise, strength and conditioning-wise and defensively he's seen everything that's come his way... So he's kind of in his sweet spot right now, and he has been the last couple years. And hopefully that continues for the next few years."

At 31-years-old, Curry is certainly at a ripe age both physically and mentally. Last season, he averaged 27.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game on 47% shooting as he led the Warriors to the NBA Finals for the 5th straight season.

He will hope to replicate those numbers, and then some, during this campign with a very different looking Warriors squad.
