Curry is being held to standards literally nobody else ever has.
Lilliard has never led his team anywhere significant.
Harden has a pretty good team, one tailor made for him. He also hasn't won anything significant.
Westbrook is a joke. He has played with James Harden, Kevin Durant, Paul George, Victor Oladipo, and got nowhere
Clearly you missed the point.
What some are already decrying an impossible task for Curry is everyday life for other players.
Honestly, I think it's a great opportunity for Steph.
I don't expect him to carry the Warriors to a top three seed like Harden (I don't think he's physically built for that), but I think a 4-6 seed is a very reasonable expectation for a player of Steph's caliber.
All three of the guys you derided have done at least that much, surely Steph can too.
Again, it's a grand opportunity for Steph. Let's see how significant
a season he can produce.
