Stephen Curry is excited for the 2018/19 NBA season and hopes to accomplish the rare feat of a three-peat with the Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors won their third championship in four years earlier this summer when they swept LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. With the addition of DeMarcus Cousins on a one-year deal soon after, the Bay Area side once again remain favorites when the new season kicks off next month.

Should they win a fourth championship in five years though, they will accomplish a three-peat, something that is rarely done in the NBA. The last team to accomplish it, of course, was the Los Angeles Lakers from 2000 to 2002 during the days of Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal.

Before that, it was Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls who did it twice from 1991 to 1993 and 1996 to 1998, while just two other teams did it before them, including the dominant Boston Celtics side from the sixties and the Lakers when they were based in Minneapolis in the early fifties.

It is why Curry is excited about the challenge as he recently spoke to local reporters in Manila as part of his Under Armour Asian Tour.

"I feel excited. I feel that I met my peak as a player and I want to stay at that level as long as I can and keep pushing myself in that direction," Curry said, as quoted on Clutch Points. "I have great teammates, great organization to play for."

"We have an amazing opportunity to do something that is rarely done in the NBA that is to win three in a row. I’m excited about the challenge," he said.

Curry doesn't only want to stop there. Like the Celtics team that won championships every year from 1959 to 1966, the 30-year-old hopes to do the same with the Warriors.

"We want more. We want to accomplish the ultimate feat of winning a championship every single year," he added. "That is why you work so hard in the off-season."

"It is why you put in the hours every day to get the right mindset to get your body ready and take advantage of a very short basketball career and try win as many titles as you can," he added.

Despite the addition of James to the Lakers, while the likes of the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder will also remain big threats, it's hard to see the Warriors not winning another championship, especially with Cousins set to return later in the regular season.

According to an ESPN projection index, Steve Kerr's side have a 55 percent chance of making the NBA Finals and a 40 percent chance of coming away with the victory, although, their chances of winning a championship dropped 18 percent from last season's index.

The Warriors will begin their 2018/19 campaign Oct. 16 when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder.
