Steph Curry has a great season so far in his 12th year in the league being actively among the players, who could win the MVP award this season.

In his interview with Marc Stein of the New York Times, Curry admitted the attention he has received through the years has been crucial to improving the mental aspects of his game.

“My patience is a lot better now, if I had to pick one thing,” Curry said to Stein. “How I see the game when I’m on and off the ball, seeing what the defense is giving you and knowing that I’ll find a way to get some space. I’m enjoying this run for sure.”

The 32-year-old guard is ravaging his opponents with superb shot-making and off-the-ball movement this season leading the Warriors to the top-8 teams of the tough Western Conference.

He’s averaging 30 points, six assists, and 5.3 rebounds per game while shooting 49.2-percent from the floor and 42.5-percent from 3-point range.

Those are the best numbers he produced since the unanimous MVP season during the 2015/16 campaign, where the Warriors finished with a 73-9 record.
