How does a ball club steal “The Greatest Shooter in NBA history” easily? To say that Stephen Curry is one of basketball’s prized possessions, snatching him away from his very team would be a difficult task. The process would entail grueling discussions and debatable offers.

Let’s keep it short and simple. Curry will re-sign with the Golden State Warriors and the confirmation came straight from him.

Next off-season will be the point guard’s first time to become an unrestricted free agent and trade rumors were too quick to drag his name on several leagues.

The three-time NBA All-Star debunked the trade speculations as he is firm in staying with the Warriors, his team since 2009. When asked whether he's confident about returning to the Golden State, the basketball superstar vehemently answered with "Yes. Yes." Such a heartwarming loyalty to his crew and their long-time supporters.

And with another big man in Kevin Durant, who recently joined their star-studded group, Curry is not bothered with any power conflicts in the future.

"Maybe, but I'm not going to let it distract me at all. I want to be back here. I like playing here, and that's it,” Curry responded when asked if he'll consult with KD on contract related issues this season.

It is not unknown to many that the Warriors have the strong chances of nabbing the NBA champion title. Should Cleveland Cavaliers rule again on its second consecutive season of winning, it is impossible to see the Cavs pursuing Stephen for a signed agreement. Yes, he will be a free agent but aside from his affirmation that he won’t be leaving the GSW, the Cavs will not chase Curry. They already have a spectacular point guard in Kyrie Irving.

Another team speculated to offer Curry an overwhelming deal is the Charlotte Hornets. It is a fact that the Under Armour ambassador spent a big chunk of his early years in Charlotte while his dad, Dell Curry, played for the Hornets. When asked about the possibility of joining the said group, he said that he didn’t know and advised that a “Steph in Charlotte” would have been realistic in the early stages of his playing career.

“Obviously I had a strong tie to Charlotte and would have loved to play there. I’m very comfortable in that city. It’s hard to say exactly what the situation will be this summer,” Curry said.

Then there’s the Los Angeles Lakers presumably willing to create cap space for Stephen Curry as well. The catch is he doesn’t need to go far should he decide to join the Lakers as LA has a beautiful weather. He’d also join the powerful list of impressive talents like Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson, and D’Angelo Russell.
Not to forget that Lakers head coach Luke Walton, served as an assistant coach to the Warriors when they won the NBA championship in 2014-2015.

Let the rumors grow but Curry’s loyalty remains.
