Stephen Curry’s opinion on the future of the Warriors’ Big Three
The Golden State Warriors were eliminated in the Western Conference semifinals at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers . However, for point guard Stephen Curry , the core of the team will compete until they are allowed to, confident that he will be able to challenge for the championship again next season.
“No matter how things look, we’re going to compete until one of the wheels comes off,” Curry said at a press conference when asked if this was the end of the Warriors’ Big Three (Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green ).
“Things look different now and despite how we feel, we believe we can come back,” he added clearly dejected after being eliminated by LeBron James, Anthony Davis and company.
"We're gonna compete until the wheels fall off."

The Lakers won 122-101 on Friday to become the first Western Conference team to win a series over Steve Kerr’s Warriors, leaving their record at 19-1. Within the framework of their dynasty, the Warriors had reached, at least, the NBA Finals , winning four of the six in which they participated.
Now the Warriors will have to make decisions regarding their payroll and see if it is worth retaining Draymond Green and extending Thompson to accompany Curry until the end of his contract.
