Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors left the Oracle Arena in 2019 after 47 years. Oracle was the home of their golden era, where they dominated the NBA for years.

The Warriors then moved to a new venue, the Chase Center, and debuted in October 2019.

They brought the 2022 NBA title to Chase, but Curry wants to play one last game at Oracle before he retires.

The Warriors won three NBA titles at their former home court (2015, 2017, and 2018) and was also home for their record-breaking 73-9 season. Their last game at Oracle was a Game 6 defeat to the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 NBA Finals.

The two-time MVP played the first ten years of his NBA career in Oakland and played his best basketball at the Oracle Arena. He won those two MVP awards (2015, 2016) while playing at what was the Warriors' home for 47 seasons.

Curry: One more at Oracle

As he enters the twilight of his career, Curry wants to make those long-range three at Oracle one last time.

“Of course, we should play at least one more game before it’s all said and done back there. Just to kind of relive the old days.”

NBA scheduling could make it happen. The Warriors and San Antonio Spurs played a game at the Alamodome in January that set a new NBA attendance record.

Curry feels the venue has unforgettable memories.

“I’d absolutely love it. I have been a big fan of ‘Let's just have one regular season game over there', just to have a little flash to the past. The Oracle in Oakland is always a part of our history. It’s part of me and my experience and all the memories that it has.”

Curry helps Warriors beat Bucks

Sports Brief earlier reported on Curry scoring 36 points to lead the Warriors to an important overtime win against the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Golden State talisman scored several clutch three-pointers to help his team bounce back from a three-game losing streak.

The reigning NBA champions now sit sixth in the Western Conference with a 35-33 record with 14 games in the regular season.
