From his high school coach, Lou Dawkins:

“He has the perfect mentality to continue to improve. He has the willingness to listen to criticism and the ability to let all the accolades coming to him now go in one ear and out the other.”

“I was always studious. I was always good in school. I knew how to study. I knew how to remember stuff. I knew how to prepare. So you apply the same things to basketball. After a while, it’s natural. This is what I love to do. I love to watch it. I’m always around it. You see it millions of times.”

Assistant coach, Golden State Warriors:

“When we don’t do stupid [expletive], we’re really [expletive] good. We feel like when we do what we do, with a focus and a discipline, there’s not a lot of teams that can beat us. The issue is that it’s just not that simple, where if you’re focused you’ll win, because at the same time we want our guys running and playing fast and Steph [Curry] and Klay [Thompson] being gunslingers. We want that, but with a fine line of, when that’s not there, recognize it and get into a motion offense, where we’re constantly putting pressure on the defense. You get 20,000 screaming fans, and they love the behind-the-back pass and all that stuff. So it’s not as simple as it sounds, but … that’s kind of the blueprint we see for our guys being able to win a championship.”

After losing to Golden State 108-100 in Game 1 of the NBA finals:

“We all have to be better. I don’t think I was great. I’ve got to do better things out on the floor to help us be more precise offensively … It’s not about me. It’s not about the next guy. It’s about all of us.”

After the Warriors defeated the Grizzlies in game 4 to tie the series at two games apiece. 

“I never get down, I get frustrated about missing shots, and how you play but you never get down on yourself. We’re competitors and as long as there’s another game, you have an opportunity to change it,”

“I respond best when a coach is able to get on me where he’s raising his voice, yelling and whatever, because he expects greatness from me—especially when I’m not performing the way I’m supposed to. I like to have, obviously, a mutual respect, and a guy who can be as consistent as possible with his message. But if I need to be yelled at and refocused, I’m open to that and I usually respond well.”

“It may seem hard to believe now, but the top universities didn’t invite me to play for them. In fact, none of the big basketball programs offered me a scholarship. Not even Virginia Tech, the college where my dad, Dell Curry, had played before his career in the NBA.”
