Video: Stephen Curry Tries To Teach Us To Shoot

Stephen Curry

When Stephen Curry gets open beyond the three-point arc, time seems to stand still for a second and you can almost feel the collective intake of breath among Golden State’s fans at Oracle Arena. The persistent chatter from even the most bawdy court-side spectators abruptly cuts off as everyone prepares to watch poetry in motion. That’s what Steph’s shooting does for basketball fans. So you can imagine how excited we got when Degree MEN invited us to a special training session with Curry at Basketball City on Pier 36 resting beside the East River in New York City. Read More »

Stephen Curry Admits He Thinks About Playing In Hometown Charlotte

Steph Curry

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry won’t be a free agent until the summer of 2017. That’s three years from now. Discussion surrounding Curry should be limited to his chances of navigating the Warriors through a historically difficult Western Conference and how he’ll fare for Team USA during the FIBA World Cup later this month. But subjects can help dictate the news cycle, and Curry’s recent admission that he has “always had thoughts” about playing in his hometown of Charlotte is such an example. Read More »

Stephen Curry, Chris Bosh

During a radio interview with Dan Patrick, Dubs PG Stephen Curry was asked to field an NFL team of NBA players. We did something similar with soccer last week, and Steph would have put LeBron James at the tight end position while he named himself quarterback. Then Patrick asked him if he was a better offensive player than LeBron James. Steph had never heard the question before, but he said he was. Read More »

Brian Scalabrine Says Mark Jackson Didn’t Challenge His Players Enough

Brian Scalabrine, Andre Iguodala

Last season, Michael Jordan clone Brian Scalabrine famously spent the second half of the season coaching Golden State’s D-League team, the Santa Cruz Warriors, after being demoted from a lead assistant by then-coach Mark Jackson. Last week, Scals went on Doug Gottlieb‘s radio show for CBS Sports and talked about his difference of opinion when it came to the coaching philosophy of Jackson, who was terminated after leading the Dubs to the playoffs in two consecutive seasons including a No. 6 seed last year.

Steph Curry is hardly Russell Westbrook or Derrick Rose, but the Golden State Warriors guard has worked hard to improve his athleticism since entering the league as a scrawny rookie five years ago. Curry, a likely starter for Team USA at the forthcoming FIBA World Cup, showed off some surprising hops last night with a series of dunks while warming up for the USA Basketball Showcase. Make no mistake, though – the league’s premier marksman still knows his bread is buttered beyond the arc. Read More »

Steph Curry doesn’t have free agency to contend with and is essentially untouchable in any potential trades. As Carmelo Anthony goes on a whirlwind recruitment tour and LeBron James grapples with his second decision, Curry could simply relax, take a break from basketball, and relish his security as face of the Golden State Warriors. Instead, he put on an absolute show at the San Francisco Bay Area Pro-Am Summer League. Read More »

Bradley Beal, John Wall

A lot of people figured the Wizards made a mistake giving John Wall a max extension last summer. But the former No. 1 pick led the Wizards to a No. 5 seed in the East and a thorough, 4-1 beatdown of the Bulls in the first round.
