CJ McCollum on guarding Stephen Curry: ‘He's a galaxy, he's a planet, he's a solar system’

How is it actually trying to guard him? Well, New Orleans Pelicans guard CJ McCollum has an answer.  “It’s very tough,” McCollum said plainly during the Warriors’ final summer league game. McCollum also mentioned how the Warriors’ system, Curry’s ability to create his own shot and stretch to the defense all the way to halfcourt, and his stamina are what make him special.  Additionally, McCollum shared what opposing teams’ defensive gameplans are when playing Curry and the Warriors. “You have to throw different bodies at him; this isn’t a guy you can just guard with one person,” he said. “He’s a galaxy, he’s a planet, he’s a solar system. Everything revolves around him.”

Pels: Contract extensions coming for CJ McCollum and Larry Nance Jr.?

The New Orleans Pelicans have interest in signing CJ McCollum and Larry Nance Jr. to contract extensions. The Pelicans acquired both players from the Portland Trail Blazers in February, which helped turn around their season and become a playoff team. “It sounds like CJ McCollum is having some contract extension talks with the Pelicans,” said Brian Windhorst. “I’m not sure when he can actually sign that, Andrew. I know he signed his last contract extension in 2019.”
