Steph Curry & John Wall To Battle In All-Star “Game Changer” Contest

Stephen Curry, John Wall

A slick PR strategy from the people at DEGREE MEN played out on Twitter yesterday and set the stage for a “Game Changer” contest between the opposing starting point guards in the 2015 NBA All-Star Game. Stephen Curry and John Wall exchanged tepid taunts on Twitter as Wall challenged Steph on the court, which is set to go down at MSG on the Saturday before the All-Star Game. Read More »

Under Armour Reveals Curry One “Dark Matter” All-Star Colorway

Under Armour Curry One 1 "Dark Matter"

Warriors point guard Stephen Curry led every player in fan voting when he was named a starter for the Western Conference in the 2015 NBA All-Star Game. So it makes sense Under Armour would release a new colorway of his signature line with the Curry One “Dark Matter” colorway. Read More »

Stephen Curry, Joakim Noah

During a back-and-forth battle in Oakland, it was none other than Stephen Curry (shocker, right?) who made the viewers’ heads spin with two brilliant plays in transition: a picture-perfect lob to Harrison Barnes and a snazzy no-look dime to David Lee. Read More »

Is This Year’s Three-Point Shootout Field The Best In League History?

Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson

Kyle Korver is enjoying one of the most impressive shooting seasons in NBA history. Klay Thompson just set an all-time record by scoring 37 points in a single quarter. Steph Curry is the league’s leading MVP candidate and broadly considered basketball’s preeminent marksmen. And all three players will reportedly take part in All-Star Weekend’s Three-Point Shootout. Amazingly, though, no member of that exalted trio leads the NBA in treys; Wesley Matthews, another contest competitor, owns that distinction. All of which begs a question: Is this the most impressive three-point contest field ever assembled? Read More »

Watch Stephen Curry’s Backdoor Jam & Rim Hang On 22-Point, 11-Assist Night

Stephen Curry

The Warriors are blazing a trail in the stacked Western Conference this season, and they are not easing up on the pedal whatsoever. Golden State in known for their momentum-shifting plays and runs – Klay Thompson’s record-setting scoring effort in one quarter is a nice example – that can demolish an opponent’s game-plan like no other squad in the league. Stephen Curry starred in one last, but not how you might expect. Read More »

Stephen Curry Will Compete In The All-Star 3-Point Shootout Until He Wins

Stephen Curry

Last February during 2014 NBA All-Star Weekend at Smoothie King Arena in New Orleans, Stephen Curry participated in his third 3-Point Shootout with similar results: he was eliminated in the first round. After three tries —including a runner-up finish to Paul Pierce in 2010 — Steph says he’s “salty” about losing and will continue to participate until he wins. Read More »

James Harden Says The Warriors “Ain’t That Good”

James Harden

Today, just three games short of the mid-way point of the 2014-15 NBA season, the Warriors have the NBA’s best record at 33-6 — a .846 winning percentage. Before Saturday’s game between the Warriors and Rockets, they still had the league’s best record, but in the pre-game tunnel James Harden told his Rockets teammates “They beat us already twice. They ain’t that good man.” A 25-point loss to the Warriors followed. Read More »

GIF: Steph Curry Nearly Breaks Wilson Chandler With Nasty Step-Back

Wilson Chandler, Stephen Curry

What are defenders supposed to do with Steph Curry? The league’s best shooter has developed into arguably its best handler and passer, and emerged as an elite finisher at the rim, too. That’s an impossible combination of traits for a defensive player to stop. Is it necessarily fair to highlight Wilson Chandler’s horribly failed efforts to stop Curry, then? No. But it’s certainly entertaining. Watch the Golden State Warriors MVP candidate nearly break the swingman with a nasty, nasty step-back in his team’s 122-79 win over the Denver Nuggets yesterday.
