Steph Curry is not of this world. but you probably already knew that.
The Warriors superstar is the greatest shooter the NBA has ever seen, helping transform the way the game has played over the past five seasons. When he is red-hot, Curry is a spectacle the likes of which the NBA has never seen. He's so unstoppable that even playing 18 holes in the middle of a back-to-back couldn't stop him from going off.
Andre Iguodala sat down with Erik Anders Lang to discuss golf and meditation and told the story of how he and Curry hit the links prior to the second game of a back-to-back and the two-time NBA MVP still went supernova.
"Like, we got a game tomorrow and it's important for him to play well," Iguodala told Anders Lang. "If I don't play well, it's whatever they ain't going to blame me. But he played great that day. He shot in the 70s like he always does ... I shot OK. I shot in the 80s so I was happy around that time. So I might have broke 90 that day and I was happy. I didn't play well that night because I was like, 'Whatever.'
"But he had like 40 that night. He had 40 that night. He killed them. And I was joking with him, 'If anyone on our team knew what we did today ...' Because nobody knew. Steve [Kerr] knew though. Steve was like, 'You guys better play good today.' Then he was like, 'Steph you should play golf every day."
The game occurred April 5, 2017, when Curry, Iguodala and the Dubs beat the Suns 120-111 and Talking Stick Resort Arena. Curry, fresh off a crisp round in the 70s, dropped 42 points and dished out 11 assists. The day before, Curry and the Warriors beat the Timberwolves 121-107 in Minnesota.
Maybe Steph should golf before every game once he returns from his broken hand.
