Stephen Curry is lethal from the three-point line and frighteningly consistent from half-court. The sweet-shooting NBA champion tried to make things more difficult on himself by throwing a PhunkeeDuck into the mix. Predictably, he was still efficient. Sinking long-range shots is a more basketball-centric use for the ride than, say, exiting a postgame press conference. But Curry still has a long way to go in supplanting J.R. Smith as the NBA’s true Face of the PhunkeeDuck.
Stephen Curry has surpassed LeBron James for the most popular jersey in the NBA. The Golden State Warriors star and league MVP topped the list of jersey sales in the NBA for the first time Tuesday. With teammates Klay Thompson ranking fifth and Draymond Green at No. 15, the Warriors also led the team-merchandise sales list during the playoffs. James, who held the top spot at the end of the regular season, dropped to second. Chicago’s Derrick Rose is third and Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving is fourth.
When Nick was three weeks old, Steve was already packing up the condo, traded to Orlando. That was 22 years ago. Today, Nick is a graduate of the University of San Diego, starting on a master’s in public health at Cal this fall. Time disappears like rings of smoke in summer air. “When are you going back to San Diego?” Fraser asked Kerr. “Saturday?” “Maybe Friday,” Kerr replied. “Right after the parade.” “Friday? What about the exit interviews?” Kerr glanced at Steph. “What did you think of the year?” “I thought it was incredible,” the point guard said. “I thought it was incredible too. But you could really be a better shooter. I think you need to work on your shot this summer. Great year. Give me a hug.”
He keeps an “image card” on the inside wall of his locker, which he received in the rookie transition program in 2009, instructing him to use “strong positive body language,” “good eye contact” and “inflection in your voice.” But he can’t manufacture inner peace, the unmistakable serenity that allows him to focus amid frenzy, and hurl flames at giants. ”For me, that comes from faith and family,” Curry says. “It’s who I am. It gives me balance. This is a high-pressure job. You gotta win. You gotta win. You gotta win. If you can turn it off for a while and make life normal, you can balance yourself out before you have to do it all over again.” His parents stayed at his house during the Finals, an arrangement that would rattle some players, but relaxed Curry. Dell, a shooting guard for 16 seasons who never advanced beyond the second round, drove with Steph to Game 1 at Oracle Arena. “I wish I could tell you what this is like,” Dell said, and they laughed. After games Steph played spades with Sonya until his mind mellowed and sleep beckoned.
He has rushed headlong to the top. The Warriors daydream about what he can accomplish if he learns to change speeds and exploit angles, as Steve Nash once did. The specter of the two-time MVP has hovered over Curry since the moment he entered the league. “I drafted him partly because he reminded me of Steve,” says Don Nelson, who coached Nash in Dallas and Curry in Golden State. “They are very similar.” Curry was more aggressive than Nash; Nash more probing than Curry. Four years after Nelson retired to Maui, Golden State coincidentally started hiring people who used to work with Nash in Phoenix: Kerr, Fraser, guard Leandro Barbosa and assistant coach Jarron Collins.
Rihanna may have ordered curry just to send it back to show her support for the Cleveland Cavaliers during the NBA Finals, but that hasn’t deterred Steph Curry from embracing all of the things that go with having the last name Curry. So when he was walking through the food line at his summer basketball camp he was in the middle of advising a camper to eat fresh fruit when he stopped to ask the food staff what they were serving. “Chicken curry, rice,” one replied, apparently completely unaware of the massive amount of joy she just brought the NBA MVP. “Chicken curry???” he asked, before turning to the camper behind him. “Is it my birthday??”
Stephen Curry and LeBron James are going head-to-head again not long after battling for the NBA title. The Golden State Warriors champ and Cleveland Cavaliers superstar are among the nominees for best male athlete at the ESPY Awards. Serena Williams leads the list of nominees for best female athlete. Joining Curry and James in the best male athlete category are Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt.
From strength in numbers to strength in dollars, our Golden State Warriors dominated the court and will now score some big-time endorsement deals. NBA MVP Stephen Curry is a fast-rising star. He already has endorsement deals with several national brands like Under Armour athletic wear. “Those sponsors are growing as we speak,” Ben Shapiro, a marketing expert from Pivot Sports Marketing, told ABC7 News.
He says the NBA Championship is about to make Curry very rich, maybe even the whole family. Ayesha Curry tweeted this photo of her new nursery, by Pottery Barn Kids. Even little Riley could lend her adorableness to a product if mom and dad approves. “The Curry family just embodies everything that should be pure about the sports and the NBA,” Shapiro said.
ESPN’s Marc Stein asked the group when the first time was that the sons realized they were better players than their fathers, and Stephen Curry revealed that his grandmother gave him the title before he ever played in the NBA. “I never really thought I was better than him until my grandma, his mom, gave me that crown. She watched every one of his games and she — I don’t know if it was in high school or my first year of college — she’s at the house and she [said] ‘that boy is better than you, Dell.’”
Raúl Barrigón: Drazen Petrovic’s mother, Biserka, took care of Stephen Curry while his father Dell was trying to win the 3pt Contest at the ASG in Orlando. Steph Curry has not forgotten it and he promised to send her a jersey he wore at Finals, according to Patrik Patafta. “It will be an honor to see my jersey at Drazen’s museum,” Curry said. http://sibenskiportal.hr/2015/06/09/mali-stephen-curry-nije-zaboravio-drazena-aktualni-mvp-nba-lige-mami-biserki-salje-dres-iz-finala/
Skip Bayless: I love Steph but GSt had a fortuitous run to title. Avoided OKC, Clips, Spurs and 4 straight injured starting PGs. Needs to validate next yr Stephen Curry: Love you too Skip!
When you set the bar that high, it puts a healthy kind of pressure on the rest of the group to meet that mark. Add in the fact that Curry is so universally loved and respected by his teammates, and you had a situation in which they all unofficially agreed to play by his rules and see where this high road took them. Put simply, no one wanted to let Steph Curry down.
Rest assured, Curry felt joy for Iguodala both publicly and privately. And when we chatted about one of the moments that he missed – Iguodala’s parents sobbing and hugging on the Quicken Loans Arena floor when the award came their son’s way – it was as if Curry had just found the extras on the DVD of his favorite movie. “That’s really cool,” he said.: 39 more rumors
But as the sun came up in “The Land” and they all headed for the hotel, a champagne-soaked straggler strolled through the near-empty joint en route to the exits. Stephen Curry’s celebration, as it turned out, had gone into overtime. Curry being Curry, he took a few minutes to say hello before heading out and shared one last conversation about how it all came to pass. When it comes to covering sporting events of this magnitude, the real insight gets harder to find with every passing round because of the circus element that just grows and grows.
Stephen Curry: Back to the Bay with this bad boy!!! Can’t tell yall how proud I am of everyone on this team. No better feeling than to celebrate with your brothers and realize what we have accomplished together. This is for the Bay! #wethechamps #dubnation
Klay Thompson did come out on the winning side of things and possibly included a not-so-subtle shot at James as part of his celebration. While sitting next to Stephen Curry and the Larry O’Brien Trophy, Thompson said, “It just feels good to say we’re the best team in the world with the best player [in] the world.”
MC Hammer had one helluva night … not only did he fly into Cleveland on a sick private jet, but the proud Oaklandian partied with the Golden State Warriors moments after they won the NBA championship! For the record, Hammer is one of the team’s BIGGEST fans … he’s basically Golden State’s Jack Nicholson.
“I’ve seen [this trophy] on TV so many times,” said Curry, who had 25 points in the clinching Game 6 victory. “You dream about what it would be like to pour champagne on yourself. And when that moment comes, holding the trophy and the champagne is falling in my face, that’s when it all sinks in. “This is real. It’s the best champagne I ever tasted in my life.”
Tom Haberstroh: Reggie Miller had held the record for most made 3s in a postseason with 58. Stephen Curry just made 98.
