His versatility and unique ability to score in different ways has made a defender’s life a living hell while trying – trying – to protect him.

But it’s hard enough for his teammates to try to keep up with the MVP in the NBA Finals.

“Playing with Steve is always a learning experience,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters afterward. The Warriors win 124-107 Above the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday at Chase Center. “It doesn’t matter who you are. Even Kevin Durant took two months just to get a feel for the way Steve plays because he’s not like anyone else on earth.”

Klay Thompson and Draymond Green can read Curry like a book, and the Big Three’s more than decade-long stint together in the Bay on the field has shown a special, unique chemistry that every pro team craves.

Even Andre Iguodala and Kevon Looney could be thrown into that group.

But with a few new faces in the squad this year and several other young players in the mix, it looks like Curry’s teammates are finally getting better at reading where they’re going and getting used to Curry’s style of play.

And in Wednesday’s win, Andrew Wiggins showed the damage that can be done simply by learning and adapting to playing Curry. Wigs dropped a season- and game-high 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting from the field and sank six triples.

Curry was right behind him with 22 points, nine assists and six rebounds.

Kerr noted that Curry’s versatility makes him a unique player.

“He plays the pick-and-roll like everybody else and then becomes Reggie Miller as soon as he gets off the ball,” Kerr said. And the vast majority of the dominant players in this league are players on the ball. And if they’re not, if they’re players off the ball, they’re not dominant. They’re the shooters. So the fact that he does both means you always have to be aware of what’s going on. So he gets the ball down and moves it around and you’re on the weak side, you better be ready to go put a screen for him and when you do that you have to be ready to defend for the jump and you have to be available for that voucher.

“But it usually takes a couple of months for guys to figure that out. But once they do, you can kind of walk away from it. You can play with it and get a good look at the basket.”

Wiggins can confirm.

The Warriors haven’t started the season like they expected. Defending champion 9-10 on the season and 1-9 on the road.

But Curry’s game hasn’t changed a bit.

In fact, the 3-point deity is on his way to breaking his own… records this season. Curry averages 32.3 points on 52.9 percent shooting from the field and 44.7 percent from depth, along with 7.1 assists and 6.7 rebounds this season.

But the Warriors’ slow start and early conflicts defeat his efforts.

Fortunately for the defending champs, it’s still early in the season and there’s still a lot of basketball to play and time to play really well on Curry’s side.
