Stephen Curry status: EXPOSED.
The Warriors are doing just fine with Shaun Livingston running the show. More than fine, in fact. They’re doing great. He doesn’t take away shots from Klay and Draymond, the real stars on the team. He’s under control and restrained at all times, unlike a certain former MVP who is reckless and trigger-happy. He might have prettier numbers than Livingston, but it’s pretty obvious who the better fit is on the Warriors.
Everybody was saying how the Warriors’ title chances went way down at exactly the same time that Curry did the splits after slipping on a puddle of Donatas Motiejunas’ ball sweat. Well, it’s pretty obvious now that the Warriors’ chances actually went UP after they got rid of Curry the ball-hog chucker. We are now seeing what Livingston can do when unleashed.
If Curry knows what’s good for him, he won’t play even when he recovers from his injury. He can just respectfully ride the pine all the way to a ring like Andrew Bogut did last year. Curry nuthuggers might stick to their narrative, but we’ll all know who da real MVP is: Shaun “Knees Totally Intact” Livingston.
