#30 – BY STEVE MORAN / SHADOWBOX MVMNT STAFF – UPPERCUT
How often do you see a guy similar in physical stature that you can be guarding at the local YMCA currently blowing up the NBA???? That’s right..You haven’t..neither have I..nor has anyone else..What Stephen Curry is currently doing in the NBA is totally revolutionary…a 6’3 180 pound point guard is keeping opposing head coaches up at night and leaving a handful of retired NBA players doing nothing but unjustifiably criticizing him…..
Steph receives criticism for leading today’s youth to the 3 point line while they should be concentrating on other aspects of their game….but, the underlying fact is if the youth of today can’t make that shot consistently than a coach won’t have to worry about coaching that player on the floor but can tell him what not to do while he is sitting next to him on the bench.. Some in the basketball community can’t really accept what he is doing because they haven’t seen it or guarded against it….
He broke his own record for 3’s in a season and there is still 20+ games left….The way Steph can shoot off the dribble with such crazy range is simply unprecedented…Enjoy what you are seeing NBA affecianados because who knows when or if we will see it again….But one thing that we will see from Stephen curry is him raising his number 30 into the rafters during his retirement ceremony….because no one in the history of the Warriors franchise will wear that number again…..
