This had a deep impact on Lewis as he even considering retiring from the sport. But after taking a break from the chaos, he decided to return to the sport he absolutely loves.

His mother has been one of the most influential people in his life.

Draymond Green Explains Why Stephen Curry Is Now Unstoppable In Isolation: “He’s The Strongest Guy On The Team… That Allowed Him To Score Whenever He Wanted…”

Published

on

Stephen Curry is the best point guard in the league, and there’s no doubt that he’s one of the best scorers as well. Curry won the scoring title during the 2020-21 season, and it’s possible that he will win another one in the future.

It is quite clear that Stephen Curry is one of the toughest covers in the league, and some people would call him unstoppable. Draymond Green is someone that believes that, and he has recently claimed that the reason Stephen Curry is unstoppable is due to his increased strength, even claiming that he’s the “strongest guy” on the Warriors. (21:15):

“The reality is is we got to a point where we needed to be able to give someone the ball that can just go get a bucket, and Kevin was already there. I don’t think Steph was there yet. So it gets us through those two years, we get those two championships, but while we’re doing that Steph is continuing to work and evolve, and most importantly, becoming the strongest dude on our team. And to this day, he’s the strongest guy on the team. And that allowed him to score whenever he wanted because you can no longer bump his off his path…That’s where Steph turned a corner and he became unstoppable, and now we’re able to continue wining championships because he’s unstoppable.”

Steph Curry was the real Western Conference Player of the Week

There is no question that Stephen Curry is hard to guard when he’s on fire, and now he’s definitely much better at creating his own shot, which makes him an even more unstoppable player. That was on display during these playoffs, and Curry hit many big baskets as the leader of the Golden State Warriors.

The Golden State Warriors just won the 2022 NBA championship behind Stephen Curry as the lone superstar on the roster. They might repeat next season, and forward Draymond Green has already claimed that they would win 3 of the next 4 championships. It is too early to say that they will win three more championships, but as long as Stephen Curry is still playing at a high level, they’ll have a good chance of getting to the Finals every year.

Boston bar continues incredibly lame war of words with Warriors’ Steph and Ayesha Curry

Published

on

The battle between a Boston bar and the Curry family continued this week heading into Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Game On! outside Fenway Park doubled down on its stupid joke about Ayesha Curry after it improbably got a response from her husband earlier this week.

The bar put up a new sign with an all-caps “STILL” to its message that “Ayesha Curry can’t cook” and attached a couple packets of instant ramen, perhaps implying that’s all the cookbook author and restaurateur can actually prepare.

This feud initially picked up right before the Warriors’ 107-97 Game 4 win over the Celtics in Boston, when the bar posted a sign that simply said, “Ayesha Curry can’t cook,” in chalk on a sandwich board. The Golden State point guard then fired back with a shirt that read, “Ayesha Curry CAN Cook,” which he wore after his team’s Game 5 win against the Celtics on Tuesday.

“I’m the petty king, so I know all about everything,” Curry said Wednesday. And he really did mean EVERYTHING.

It’s hard to see where Steph goes from here in this feud, which has devolved into two sides doing a yes-she-can-no-she-can’t back-and-forth. Does he break out another shirt that simply changes this sign’s “can’t” to a “can” again? Does he eat his wife’s food while doing his postgame press conference? Does he simply come out and say that the chef at the bar taunting his wife’s cooking prowess is the real one who can’t cook? Who knows? Neither side is exactly expending a whole lot of creativity, that’s reserved for the Dubs fans review-bombing the restaurant on Yelp.

One thing that’s for certain: The Warriors can close out the NBA Finals on Thursday with a Game 6 win in Boston and haven’t lost since this feud caught the attention of Warriors fans. Maybe the bar owners just want this series to be over sooner rather than later.

How Stephen Curry’s father Dell helped him polish his shooting ability

The Warriors star recently won the 2022 NBA Finals MVP award

Stephen Curry and Dell Curry

It takes lots of effort and work ethic to became a four-time NBA champion and receive a Finals MVP award, but Stephen Curry has managed to achieve both, having his father Dell as his role model.

The Golden State Warriors guard comes from a basketball family, with his father having played and with his younger brother Seth currently plying his trade at the Brooklyn Nets.

“He’s definitely better than I was,” his father Dell told GQ in 2016.

“I had a two-dribble limit. He’s probably best off the dribble. His range is definitely farther than mine was.

“But it’s a different NBA. I would never take 35-foot 3-pointers with 17 seconds on the shot clock.”

Dell spent 16 years in the NBA, featuring for teams such as the Utah JazzCleveland Cavaliers and Charlotte Hornets, winning the Sixth Man of The Year prize back in 1994.

“I saw my dad and how he carried himself as a professional and it helped me transition into the NBA,” Curry said in 2018.

Steph Curry’s summer workout with his father

When Steph struggled in his bid to polish his shooting ability, his father spent a summer with him before his sophomore year reworking his jumper and release from the inside out.

“[It was] the most frustrating summer for me,” Stephen told Sports Illustrated in 2013.

“I really couldn’t shoot outside the paint for like the first three weeks. All summer when I was at camps people were like, ‘Who are you, why are you playing basketball?’

“I was really that bad for a month and a half [before] I finally figured it out.”

His brother Seth said that Curry even thought about giving up and he would end up crying in practices.

It was at Davidson college when Curry finally stood out, registering 40.8 percent in three-pointers as a freshman and 43.9 percent as a sophomore. He also set an NCAA record for most three-pointers made in a single season with 162.

“He was a good shooter,” his father said.
