The title is not misleading. There are people out there that think Stephen Curry is falling off.
Spoiler alert: He’s not.
You don’t average 25.3 points, 6.6 assists, and 4.5 rebounds per game if you are. Especially on a team as stacked with talent as Golden State.
That’s A Lot Of Star Power
Maybe fans grew tired of seeing the two-time league MVP’s highlights and reading his name across social media every time they turned around.
Maybe Russell Westbrook’s MVP season, which included averaging a triple-double, took away from Curry’s presence as the NBA’s top point guard.

Maybe the Warriors’ addition of Kevin Durant, who throughout the NBA Finals at least was the game’s best wing, took away from Curry’s presence on the court.
Maybe James Harden’s video game stats overshadowed what Curry was doing game in and game out.
Will Houston’s Have The Best Backcourt With These Two Together?
Believe it or not, there’s even more maybes out there.
