Stephen Curry believes he's at his peak and is determined to stay at that level

Stephen Curry believes he's playing at the peak of his powers

Stephen Curry may have won three championships in the last four years but he's still hungry for a lot more. 

The superstar helped the Golden State Warriors win back-to-back titles last season and they are the heavy favourites to win a third in a row this year. 

The Warriors' dominance over the last four seasons has coincided with the three-point marksman establishing himself as one of the best players in the NBA. 

Superstar status

He secured consecutive MVP awards in 2015 and 2016 to illustrate just how good he has been - the latter of which was won unanimously for the first time in league history.

Despite the incredible success he's enjoyed, Curry is not prepared to let up and has warned his rivals that he's playing at the peak of his powers. 

The 30-year-old is determined to stay at this level for as long as possible.

“I feel excited. I feel that I met my peak as a player and I want to stay at that level as long as I can and keep pushing myself in that direction," Curry said, per Michael Angelo S. Murillo of BusinessWorld.

"I have great teammates, great organisation to play for. We have an amazing opportunity to do something that is rarely done in the NBA that is to win three in a row. I’m excited about the challenge.” 

Staying motivated

You can forgive a team that's been to four consecutive NBA Finals and won three rings to lose motivation as that type of run can take a huge toll physically. 

But Curry wants to achieve something special and create a dynasty in the Bay Area while he's still playing.

“We want more. We want to accomplish the ultimate feat of winning a championship every single year."

"That is why you work so hard in the off-season. It is why you put in the hours every day to get the right mindset to get your body ready and take advantage of a very short basketball career and try win as many titles as you can,” Curry said.

As the leader of this Dubs team, as long as he has the drive to keep winning, he won't allow his teammates to slack.

Winning certainly never gets old and they're unlikely to take their foot off the gas in Oakland. 

The acquisition of DeMarcus Cousins shows that they're keen to continue their dominance.
