Can Stephen Curry Prove His Worth?
On the surface, it looks like a conflict of interest, but Warriors point guard Stephen Curry warns against buying into a negative outlook.
Curry’s representatives and the Warriors’ front office have agreed to table contract extension talks until after the preseason, when the point guard’s health can be better evaluated. But coach Mark Jackson on Saturday said he’s leaning toward sitting Curry and his surgically repaired right ankle for either Sunday’s preseason opener against the Lakers or Monday’s home opener against Utah.
That approach would give the team one less game to appraise Curry and give the point guard one less game to prove he’s worth big money.
