Golden State Warriors star monitor Stephen Curry says he is roused by watching Tom Brady, at age 43, lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back to the Super Bowl.
“It’s a different sport, different position, but it’s definitely — the little things that you can do, that I’ve been doing, that I’m doing now, that I can do going forward to make sure your body is able to recover, able to stay in prime condition, so that you give yourself the best chane to be ready for season after season after season,” Curry said Monday. And then you make the necessary adjustments of what your game needs to morph into or things like that. … The approach and the discipline that he demonstrated on what it means to be a professional athlete at that level with that longevity, it doesn’t happen by accident. So there are things that you can do to put yourself in a position to stretch it out even farther.”
On Sunday, Brady will confront the Kansas City Chiefs, in his tenth Super Bowl. He has won six titles, the most by any NFL quarterback. Curry is a three-time NBA champ, however met Brady in 2014, before winning his first NBA title.
“We just lost to the Clippers in the first round so I had some spare time,” Curry said of their gathering at the Preakness that year. “… It appeared as though he was continually attempting to get pieces himself on different folks from various associations. That serious fire, even in the center of his offseason, was still – you could see it in his eyes. You appreciate significance. It’s stunning. After seven years he’s actually pursuing Super Bowls and it’s one of those [situations] each time you see him in the splendid stages, you can’t not watch. You anticipate that significance should occur. So we’ll be watching [Sunday] and check whether he can complete it.”
Brady’s life span, and capacity to play at a particularly level for a supported measure of time, is something that numerous competitors have lauded the Bucs quarterback for during his profession, however Curry’s commendation of Brady went ahead a day where Curry recognized that he contemplates his own title window
“There are things that are within your control and things that aren’t,” Curry said. “But all the little things that you do on a daily basis, all the work that you put in, is building towards getting back to that stage and understanding — you’re living in reality so you know unless you’re playing quarterback for the Tampa Bay Bucs right now, there’s a fine line between when you’re at your peak and when you need to really get the most out of what you got on the court. That’s kind of the perspective, so definitely think about it.”
Curry’s point of view about his future came into more concentrate last season after he endured a wrecked left hand in the fourth round of the year. Between that injury, Klay Thompson’s continuous season-finishing wounds, and Kevin Durant’s Achilles injury in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals, and ensuing choice to sign with the Brooklyn Nets, Curry is intensely mindful of exactly how quick things can change for any group. At the point when asked how much longer he feels his own title window is open, Curry was confident that it would stay fully operational for some time.
“You’re thinking this year and next year,” Curry said. “You’re thinking with Klay coming back, you’re thinking about all those different things, but right now who’s to say we can’t put pieces together? I’m in the middle of my prime and thinking about all the things that we’ve gone through over the last four or five years that we can kind of build on. It’s hard to say what the actual number is, but I think we’re in a good spot, let’s put it that way.”
Curry, who will be 33 in March, was then asked how far he can loosen up his excellent given that he had recently said that he believed he was in his pinnacle years.
“We’re going to find out,” Curry answered.
Broadening top years is something Brady is all around very acquainted with. Brady is the most established QB to win a Super Bowl – and that came two seasons preceding this title run.
