Frank Vogel had nothing but good words to say about Stephen Curry and how he has played the game during the Warriors’ championship run.

Vogel said Curry has changed the game and deserves credit for that.

“Steph changed the game. That’s the simplest way to put it. He changed everything. The whole mindset of offensively, what good shot selection means.

I think he changed and broke that mold entirely and made it a good shot to rise up off of screens but also to shoot with range when you have that type of ability.

I think that’s the main thing, but the way they played with the movement and without bigs — or Draymond at the 5 — I think their whole culture and style of play helped transition the league into what we know as the modern NBA with a lot of 3-point shooting and whatnot. I think Steph deserves a lot of credit for that,” Frank Vogel told reporters, via Lakers Nation.

Curry, a three-time NBA champion with the Warriors, is averaging 29.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists this season.
