2014-15 Kia NBA MVP to Discuss Warriors’ Chase for 73 Wins, Comparing Eras and More During NBA GameTime Interview with Kristen Ledlow
Interview to Air Prior to Highly Anticipated Warriors vs. Thunder Rematch on TNT at 10:30 p.m.
Tonight’s NBA GameTime – Thursday, March 3, at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV – will feature an exclusive interview with Kia NBA MVP Stephen Curry, as the Golden State Warriors star discusses the team’s quest for an all-time record 73 wins, last week’s game-winning shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder, comparing eras and more during a conversation with NBA TV’s Kristen Ledlow.
Curry on comparing eras and chasing history: “Those guys [former players] I know, when they were in their era, their generation, their prime, didn’t want to have any outside talk to distract, or taint… what they were doing. We are in the middle of our journey now… [We are] having fun winning trying to take the game to new levels and chase history. We want to be able to enjoy that without having to answer questions about comparing [our] team to teams in the past, or compare the game how it is now to older generations… You can’t really compare generations. For us we just have to block it out, but it is kind of frustrating to have to deal with those questions.”
Curry on his 37-foot game-winner last week against Oklahoma City Thunder: “I had confidence it was going in, but you never know in that kind of moment. I obviously took the shot for a reason, thinking I would make it. [The long distance shot] might seem crazy to most people. I practice that shot, and pretty much had it going the whole game.”
The studio show will also preview all the night’s NBA action including NBA on TNT’s doubleheader featuring the San Antonio Spurs and New Orleans Pelicans at 8 p.m., followed by a rematch of the overtime thriller between the Thunder and Warriors at 10:30 p.m.
