Steph Curry gives Knicks fans painful reminder of what could have been

The 2022 Finals will get underway on Thursday night, with the Golden State Warriors hosting the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of what should be a terrific matchup. Prior to the on-court action getting started, key players and coaches met with reporters on Wednesday for Finals media day.

During Steph Curry's session, he was asked about his tenure with the Warriors, and what he thought about the franchise at first compared to what he thinks about it now. While his answer as a whole wasn't particularly interesting, he did drop another knife in the heart of New York Knicks fans when he said he thought he was going there in the 2009 NBA Draft.

“I didn't think much about [the Warriors],” Curry said. “I was growing up on the East Coast. I watched games but really all I knew was the ‘We Believe' team, Baron Davis dunk, them beating Dallas. I knew about ‘Run TMC' but didn't really understand the history as much. When I got drafted I thought I was going to New York and didn't really have Golden State on the radar at all.”

As has been well documented, the Knicks wanted to take Curry, who had become a star in college at Davidson. In fact, during an interview earlier this year, Mike D'Antoni, who was coaching the Knicks at the time, said “we wanted [Curry] so bad, I could taste it.”

Instead, the Warriors took Curry with the No. 7 overall pick, one slot ahead of the Knicks at No. 8.
