The 33-year-old Golden State Warriors favorite son, Stephen Curry, is entering the twilight of his career, or is he? If you take a look at Tom Brady, Lionel Messi, or Cristiano Ronaldo, age is just a number and there are a number of great players still working their magic well past 30 years of age.
Now in his 13th NBA season, Curry wants to keep on playing at the highest level and winning championships. After an injury plagued 2019/2020, Curry came on strong in 2020/21 playing 63 games and having 32 points per game for the Warriors.
The main source of inspiration for the three-time NBA champion is the 44-year-old, top of his game, and reigning NFL Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady. Here is what Stephen Curry had to say about Tom Brady.
Stephen Curry on Tom Brady’s longevity
Stephen Curry was all praises for the 7-time Super Bowl champion stating, “Absolutely. I’ve actually talked to him, personally, about this (longevity)” Curry told NBC Sports Bay Area. “He’s at the point now where he can look back and talk about that with some authority and experience.”
Curry went on to state, “when he was in his early-30s, mid-30s, late-30s, it was always, ‘I think I’ve still got two more years in me. Stay. Do everything I can to sustain yourself and stay physically and mentally sharp.’ And then you look up and you’re saying that again, saying it in the next two years. And you’re saying it again.”
Brady is getting ready for his 22nd season in the NFL, one when it is all set and done will be one of, if not the greatest career in the league’s history.
