Jackson said he was “crazy enough” to believe that Curry saw his ankle problems healed because God blessed the point guard who was “bold enough” to come to the altar at his church. “I was able to witness, share, testify and when necessary use words,” Jackson said. “It’s not like I was hitting them over the head with the Bible.” Contra Costa Times

Kobe Bryant hounded Stephen Curry in the backcourt, and all the way into the frontcourt, harassing the Golden State point guard with the Lakers trailing by 31 in a preseason game. It was probably one of those good-natured, one-superstar-to-another moment of levity. And then Curry stepped back and sank a 30-foot 3-pointer and spun to look at Kobe. And 36-year old Kobe smiled and patted on the 26-year old Curry on the butt. The Big Lead

Kerr and his staff are looking to reduce Curry's workload and have others help create easier scoring opportunities for the point guard who last season averaged career highs of 24 points and 8.5 assists. "A lot of people talk about the load I had last year," Curry said Monday at his ThanksUSA Golf Tournament. "Obviously I didn't feel it on the court. You love having those opportunities to make decisions, but when you're able to use every piece of talent we have on the roster that can make each others' jobs a little bit easier, that goes a long way. "So I'm sure they have the game plan to make it work, and we have to be coachable and figure out how to put the pieces together and make the right plays. Coach and (his staff) have done their homework. I'm sure they'll learn on the job obviously, but they know based on our roster what to do to put us in the best position to win, so we've got to accept that." Contra Costa Times

It was great to see Klay Thompson and Steph Curry playing for Team USA. ... I would imagine having Thompson selected to that team, and having (Mike) Krzyzewski and the other coaches talk about how good he is at both ends of the floor, really quieted a lot of us who thought the Warriors should have gone after Kevin Love. Do you feel that way? Kerr: No. I don’t really care about what anybody says about that. I only care about our own players — I don’t worry about speculation or what could’ve or what should’ve (happened) or anything like that. I just worry about our own guys and what we’re going to do. I do know this — if we can keep Steph and Klay together here, we have a chance to have one of the best backcourts in the NBA for many years to come. San Francisco Chronicle

Still, the legacy of American dominance that the Dream Team left is always on the line when its successors find themselves faced with an international challenge. Thus, the next week — in which Team USA faces Slovenia on Tuesday and would advance to a Thursday semifinal with a win — matters more than most might realize. "I've thought about (the Dream Team) a lot," Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry said. "Guys that suited up on this team were walking through the hotel (the other day), kind of in the back of the line, and everybody had on their practice jerseys. And we were like ... 22 years ago, the Dream Team first came through here and won a gold and set up, hopefully, the longstanding US dominance in the basketball world. It's definitely special."

Stephen Curry made six 3-pointers and scored 20 points, leading the U.S. national team into the quarterfinals of the Basketball World Cup with an 86-63 victory over Mexico on Saturday. The Golden State Warriors All-Star was 7 of 10 from the field and 6 of 9 behind the arc, continuing to move a dismal start to the tournament for one of the game's best shooters. USA Today Sports

James Harden scored 17 points, Stephen Curry added 14 and the unbeaten U.S. national team wrapped up pool play with a 95-71 victory over Ukraine on Thursday at the Basketball World Cup. Anthony Davis finished with 12 points for the Americans, who were still waiting out the final results from Group D in the Canary Islands to determine who they would play Saturday night in Barcelona. They would draw the fourth-place finisher in the round of 16. The Americans were never in any danger of losing in the second half after seizing control just before halftime against a methodical Ukraine team coached by former NBA coach Mike Fratello.

Connor Sports: How would you describe the team’s offensive play at this moment? Stephen Curry: “It’s pretty good. We’re still learning about knowing where everybody is, but we have so many weapons around the floor. We have got to figure out how to continue to get in the paint and keep it moving because with our speed we’re pretty tough to guard against when we do that. We showed that in the second half against Slovenia (a 101-71 victory on Tuesday) when we got a lot of open shots just by how fast we moved.” TalkBasket
