Stephen Curry Wants to Play for the Charlotte Bobcats … Some Day

I’m sure Golden State Warriors management will be absolutely thrilled to read this. Stephen Curry has his sights set on playing in Charlotte at some point in the future. From the Charlotte Observer: “Stephen Curry says emphatically he’s a happy Golden State Warrior. But if somewhere down the road he reaches free-agency, and the hometown Charlotte Bobcats choose to pursue him, the former Davidson star would find playing here quite appealing. ‘Of course I’d like to play here – it’s home and I know a lot of people. But that doesn’t mean I’m trying to get out of Golden State,’ Curry said Thursday. ‘There’s no reason I would not want to play in Charlotte. Maybe the pressure of being around family all the time would affect some people, but I wouldn’t be opposed to any of that.’ Curry is back at Davidson, taking three classes toward his sociology degree, while the NBA and the players union work out their differences. Curry and his wife of two months, the former Ayesha Alexander, bought a home near Weddington that they plan to use as their permanent residence regardless of where basketball takes them. For now, Curry plans to rent in San Francisco once the lockout ends. Curry said he’s excited about the Warriors’ recent change in ownership and new coach Mark Jackson, a fellow point guard. ‘I think the Warriors are headed in a good direction, and I want to be a part of that,’ Curry said.”

    Normally, I’d look down on this but since GState management said everyone was on the trading block just a year ago, I can’t say he’s at too much fault.

    They got new management. Supposedly Curry and Monta are “untouchable” now. Except Monta gonna get traded when they realize they still haven’t improved on last year.

    I’m sure the kid can get his hands on an early copy of 2k12…

    nbk, Curry learned real early that nobody’s untouchable. Plus, he sounds like the kind of guy that listens to the lessons his old man learned.

    Why’s everyone taking this at all seriously? Dude was back in Charlotte studying, some reported asked him if he had the chance would he play in Charlotte, of course he said yes, who wouldn’t want to play for their hometown team? And it’s not like you can really say no in that situation anyway.
