With the Golden State Warriors' season set to begin, head coach Steve Kerr wants franchise icon Stephen Curry to keep performing at his typically exceptional level.

"I'm not looking for anything different than what he's done for five years, but what he's done is pretty special: two MVPs and a perennial top-five player," Kerr said on Sunday, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell.

"He's had an incredible camp," Kerr continued. "To me, he's at his peak physically, mentally. He's seen every defense that people have thrown at him now during his career, and he's ready to have a great year."

The team underwent a fairly significant overhaul this summer. Kevin Durant wound up with the Brooklyn Nets through a sign-and-trade, Andre Iguodala was dealt to the Memphis Grizzlies, and Shaun Livingston retired.

Among the most prominent additions are 2019 All-Star D'Angelo Russell and center Willie Cauley-Stein. Those two are solid, but they're unlikely to fill the holes that departed veterans and Klay Thompson's recovery from an ACL tear leave behind.

The 31-year-old Curry still leads the charge for the Warriors. Kerr thinks the six-time All-Star possesses the perfect combination of ability and experience to keep dominating the league in the years to come.

"Teams have played him every possible way that you could think of, and he's had years now to work on counters," Kerr added. "So he's kind of in his sweet spot right now, and he has been the last couple years. And hopefully, that continues for the next few years. But he's an amazing player."
