Bob Myers: When I asked (Steph) ‘Kevin (Durant) wants to meet with us, what do you think?’ And that conversation has to be had sitting right next to that person, looking at you. That is not a text message, it’s not an email, that’s not with ten people in the room. So that’s body language, that’s body contact, that’s everything. So when I said that, and I saw him look at me, and gave no hint of questioning or tribulation or anything, I knew then that whatever came along, it would be fine.
Silas is perhaps best known by hardcore NBA aficionados for his work with a young Steph Curry. He taught Steph his two-basketball dribbling routine and he gets a chuckle when fans come to the arena early to watch Curry’s pregame workout. Their relationship has deep roots. Silas had known Steph since he was a kid growing up in Charlotte. His niece and nephew went to the same school and Paul Silas had coached Dell Curry with the Hornets. They were both sons of former players and hit it off immediately. Curry would come over on off days and watch games or eat dinner. They’d go to church together or go to the gym and get up shots. “He’s like the perfect student,” Silas says. “He listens all the time, asks great questions, challenges you a little. You can tell him something and he’ll get better right after you tell him. He stretches you, which was good for me as a coach.”
He posted a season-high 39 points, while posting 14-of-24 from the field, 4-of-10 from 3-point range, 11 rebounds and seven assists. Klay Thompson (23 points), Andre Iguodala (season-high 12 points) and Omri Casspi (12 points) also added double-digits. But Curry also fouled out as the Warriors led 107-102 with three minutes remaining, while also recording seven turnovers. “I thought he was a little bit careless in the second half,” Kerr said of Curry. “He knows that. But it’s something that I’ll gladly take if it’s an issue I have to deal with as a coach.”
How quickly two years flies by. It was only then that Markelle Fultz attended Steph Curry’s basketball camp in the Bay Area. Fultz stood out to Curry, who recognized the teenager’s promising talent. In the time since that camp, Fultz became the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. “You knew right away what kind of potential he had in the league,” Curry said to NBC Sports Philadelphia Saturday at shootaround.
