Despite the early turmoil created by the Draymond Green-Jordan Poole incident during the preseason, the Golden State Warriors got off to a strong start to the 2022-23 NBA season. After three games, the Dubs are 2-1.

The reigning champions have recently beaten the Sacramento Kings 130-125 in what could have been a much more comfortable win. With the team leading by more than 20 points, many young players entered the court.

However, Golden State almost blew that lead as the Kings managed to significantly reduce the gap, finishing the fourth quarter 31-17. After the hard-fought win, Stephen Curry sent a message to the young players on the roster.

Stephen Curry has a piece of advice for young Warriors teammates

“That’s part of the growth of young guys trying to understand how hard it is to win in this league,” Curry said postgame, as quoted by Fadeaway World. “… We make it look easy at times, and that’s built over a decade of work and reps. It’s really hard to win in this league, and to sustain that. 48 minutes is a long time. You have to feel it and get exposed a little bit to understand what it means to win.”

Curry has a fair point. Some players often let the success go to their heads, but that’s not the case with Steph. Instead, he gives those who are making their first steps a valuable lesson for the rest of their careers.
