Steph Curry finds himself in a state of frustration as the Golden State Warriors conclude the year with a disappointing third consecutive loss.

The star player is urging the team to define its identity “before it’s too late” and is calling on the coaching staff to identify the optimal starting lineup going forward.

In the latest defeat, the Warriors faced a formidable challenge in the fourth quarter against the Dallas Mavericks, resulting in a 132-122 loss.

Luka Doncic showcased his prowess with a game-high 39 points, eight rebounds, and 10 assists. While Curry contributed 25 points and seven assists, it wasn’t sufficient to secure a victory.


The Warriors Struggle: Could They Miss the Playoffs?

Why is Steph Curry so frustrated?

Expressing his discontent, Curry was quick to point to the issues with team selection in the immediate aftermath of the loss.

“It’s frustrating, for sure. Thirty-two games in, and any seriously competitive contender, a good team can answer that question: Is there a clear-cut five players the team can rely on? We have to get to that point before it’s too late,” he bemoaned.

This marks the first time Curry has openly voiced frustration regarding team personnel, underscoring the urgency for change.

The Warriors cannot afford to squander another MVP-level season from Curry without optimizing their lineup, given the injustice to his greatness.

Fans are calling on the front office to make moves in the trade market and suggesting potential targets like Pascal Siakam and Lauri Markkanen.

Some advocate for increased minutes for promising young players such as Brandin Podziemski, Trayce Jackson-Davis, Jonathan Kuminga, and Moses Moody. The consensus among fans is that Curry, with his exceptional skill, deserves the best supporting cast possible if the team are to make the most of his final years.

The clamor for change extends to the consideration of parting ways with established players like Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andrew Wiggins. Thompson’s hot streak has cooled, Wiggins struggles to regain his 2022 form, and Green remains suspended following an on-court incident as he focuses on personal development.

Steve Kerr has a job on his hands. He needs to find a consistent rotation, and one which helps Curry play his best basketball. If he can’t, then 2023 is going to be a wasted season for Steph Curry.
