Steph Curry's meteoric rise from a small college to the first unanimous MVP in NBA history hasn't come without regrets.

Well, only one to be exact.

In a feature written by the New York Times, the Golden State Warriors point guard revealed the only regret he's had in his playing career.

It came during the 2016 NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers - yes, the one where Cleveland overcame a 3-1 deficit to win the title.

"The only regret I do have is the behind-the-back pass I threw in 2016 in Game 7," Curry said to the New York Times' Sopan Deb. "That's literally the only regret I have in terms of how I've played, and that comes with wins and losses, right? I'm cool."

Here's the play Curry mentioned.

Curry's ill-advised pass came at a pivotal time in the game. The Warriors held an 87-86 lead with only a few minutes left in the game.

Golden State went on to lose the series, becoming the only team in NBA history to lose the NBA finals after holding a 3-1 lead.

The loss to Cleveland in 2016 cost the Warriors a chance at four-straight titles.
