Curry appeared on “TODAY” on March 31 to share his thoughts on getting older.

Curry discussed his future in the NBA and how his inevitable retirement is motivating him. “The thought (of retirement) is creeping up on me,” he said, “and I know how important the next two or three years are for me to keep playing, to keep doubling my level, to keep pushing myself to the limit.”

“I like the fact that it gives me a lot more motivation to take advantage of all the opportunities I have now,” he added, “but also because, as you know, the ball stops bouncing at some point.”

Born in 1988 and turning 35 this year, Curry has been an iconic player in the league for more than a decade. But despite his age, Curry has continued to perform at a high level.

Last season, in 56 regular-season games, he averaged 29.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 6.3 assists on 49.3% shooting from the field and 42.7% from three-point range. In the playoffs, Curry exploded even more, averaging 30.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 6.1 assists in the face of intense defense.

Best of all, Curry’s play wasn’t based on athleticism, allowing him to remain in his prime well into his 30s, which gives him a chance to add a championship trophy to his resume.

Additionally, Curry, who will spend the upcoming season alongside 38-year-old veteran Chris Paul, will be able to exert his dominance for years to come with a mid-range jumper that he has made completely his own as of last year.
