Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry celebrates scoring a three-pointer during game 6 of the 2022 NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics.

Stephen Curry’s NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics was a remarkable one; a moment that is sure to hold a prominent place in the annals of his incredible career. Over six games, the Golden State Warriors star and Finals final MVP averaged 31 points, six pounds and five dimes while draining 43.7% of his three games.

The high water mark appeared in Game 4 when Curry dropped 43 points in a 14/26 shoot to lead the Dubs to a massive, behind-the-scenes victory in Beantown.

Still as good as he is when it matters most, it’s hard to ignore the fact that Steph’s regular season falls short of his usual standards. His overall conversion rate (43.7%) and three-point efficiency (38%) are essentially new career lows, and he also missed the final few weeks of the season with an injury.

So there are a few things to keep an eye on as the player enters his 14th year.

On the other hand, Curry clearly continues to be a monster in the gym. And he looks set to do all he can this summer to ensure that his body is in tip-top shape for the Dubs’ latest title defense.


Steph is working hard

On Tuesday, Steph’s performance coach Carl Bergstrom updated his Instagram timeline with another video of the eight-time All-Star participating in training (see above). In the assembly clips, he is shown from different angles performing rows of weights with his arms, legs, and torso in different positions.

“The upper body focuses on balance and core integration,” reads Bergstrom’s caption.

To see a 34-year-old’s commitment to fitness displayed in such a way is a welcome sight for the Warriors faithful. The post’s comment thread was littered with replies praising Curry for breaking the season.

One fan wrote: “Brother getting ready for 5th and 5th GOAT season.

Another commenter begged: “Work those muscles, get back to that mvp form.

“Finishing work on the season, getting ready for #NBA 2022 to begin. Let’s go!” the third response is read.

Can Curry win another MVP title?

Curry’s dedication to his body has always been one of his most impressive points. But one has to wonder if his work in the weight room this season really translates to the baller having a better campaign overall in 2022-23.

Assuming it is possible, now might be the time to place an early bet on Steph’s MVP candidacy. His current odds of winning the trophy for a third time equate to a healthy sum if he does.

As of this writing, Curry is the +1300 pick to be the tournament’s next MVP, according to FanDuel. That odds put him five places behind current favorite, Luka Doncic, who sits at +460. Following Dallas Mavericks star Joel Embiid (+550), Giannis Antetokounmpo (+650), Nikola Jokic (+1000), former Warrior Kevin Durant (+1200) and Steph.
