Stephen Curry Revisits Warriors Blowing Lead in 2016 NBA Finals


For all that Stephen Curry has accomplished in his career, the Warriors superstar will likely never escape the stigma of blowing a 3–1 lead to the LeBron James-led Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals. And, from the sound of it, the epic story may be one Curry is still trying to fully wrap his mind around nearly seven years later.

The four-time NBA champion reflected on the ring that got away during a recent appearance on JJ Redick’s The Old Man and The Three podcast. The retired sharpshooter asked Curry to contextualize the 2015–16 season, an iconic year that saw the future Hall of Famer win his second consecutive—and the NBA’s first unanimous—MVP award and Golden State finish with a historic 73–9 record.

As the 13-year veteran explained his answer, Curry naturally arrived to the moment where the Warriors blazed through the playoffs and appeared within reach of becoming back-to-back champions. Until, as Curry put it, James and Kyrie Irving went on an all-time tear that still seems unreal to this day.
