For now, with three years left on his deal with the Golden State Warriors, playing back home in Charlotte remains a mere fantasy for Stephen Curry.
The dead-eyed shooter says there’s no better feeling than playing in front of your family and hometown friends.
Per the Bay Area News Group:
Curry said he was surprised (LeBron) James left the Heat to return to play for his hometown team in the Cavaliers, but added, “I’m sure there’s no better feeling than going home.”
“I’ve always had thoughts about playing at home, what it would be like,” said Curry, who is in the middle of a four-year, $44 million contract extension with the Warriors. “My dad played there for 10 years, and people around the Greater Charlotte area in North Carolina have done a lot for my family growing up, so you always think about it.
“Right now I feel like I’ve got three years left on my deal, so this isn’t going to be an issue for me for a while. I love the Bay Area and where we are as a team trying to win a championship, and that’s what it’s all about. Of course everybody dreams about or thinks about what it’s going to be like to play at home. Obviously if that opportunity comes along it’s a different discussion.”
