Steph Curry wanted to be a Knick. The three-time NBA champion recalled the night he was drafted No. 7 overall in 2009 on a recent episode of Showtime’s “All the Smoke,” podcast admitting that he had his sights set on the Big Apple. “I wanted to go to New York and thought I was going to New York,” Curry said. “At the draft — in the green room — like, ‘Oh, get to the eight spot and New York can get me.’ “And then I got the call from (then-Warriors GM) Larry Riley, like ‘We’re going to pick you in the seventh spot.’”
Real recognize real. Last year, former NBA superstar Allen Iverson stated that current Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is in his top five players of all time, adding that Curry would be the starting point guard if he were to assemble an all-time starting five. Since then, Iverson’s comments have stuck with Curry. The two-time MVP admitted in an episode of Showtime’s “All the Smoke” that he has Iverson’s remark saved on his phone. “I ain’t never had a big head. That dude who I picked up a lot of game and inspiration from — he’s now looking at my game … Some OGs, they don’t want to relinquish the praise. Same way we respect the OGs, we want it both ways. So when you do hear that, that means something,” Curry said in the show’s latest episode that is set to premiere this Thursday.
Storyline: Old School vs. New School
Curry already looks ready to play in his post-practice sessions. Judging by his shooting, his broken left hand looks healed. He is no longer wearing the brace. But he hasn’t played since Oct. 30. Saturday was his 40th game missed since the injury. By the All-Star break, Curry will have missed 51 games — the most he’s missed in a season since he missed 40 games in the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season when he severely sprained his right ankle.
