A Glimpse Into Curry’s Mind – Retirement Thoughts Linger

In his 15th year in the league, Steph Curry has exhibited no signs of slowing down. However, the seasoned warrior admitted that retirement thoughts cross his mind regularly. Addressing reporters after the NBA All-Star Game in Indianapolis, Curry shared, “I think about it all the time. But the thoughts stop because you gotta get ready for the next game, and there’s a routine and a cycle that goes where you embrace the now.”

   

Despite acknowledging these thoughts, Curry emphasized that the time for retirement isn’t imminent. “Eventually, you’ll get to a point where you’ll wake up and whatever your body is telling you and whatever your mind is telling you it’s time, but I don’t think I’m anywhere close to that,” he added.
