Steph Curry doesn’t want to be the face of the NBA. (Look, Jerry West is already “the logo.”) Curry wants rings, man. “The fact that we won a championship last year and were the last team standing, obviously, is what was most important to me,” Curry told the media in a pre NBA Finals session.
Curry doesn’t see this Finals as a secondary ballot on the real MVP either. (Some are saying LeBron James and Cleveland — with a Finals win — can prove MVP voters were wrong in unanimously selecting Curry this year, his second straight MVP Award.) All that chatter is beyond Curry’s control and doesn’t much hold his interest either, because none of it takes playce between the lines. “That’s not what I’m playing for, to be the face of the NBA or to be this or that or to take LeBron’s throne or whatever. You know, I’m trying to chase rings, and that’s all I’m about. So that’s where the conversation stops for me,” Curry say.
