“As long as I could see the rim,” he said, “I felt like I was cool.” But the Paul family knew what LASIK could do. His father and brother both had the procedure during Paul’s rookie season, and they raved about the results. While they were seeing 20/20, Paul was struggling to see when he looked over at the bench. “Everyone used to tell me I squinted on the court,” Paul said. “Like when (Coach) Doc (Rivers) was trying to get my attention to call a play, they’d say I squinted all the time.”

Despite years of telling reporters that his rolled ankles and sprained fingers would be “fine,” on Wednesday, Paul admitted the truth. He’s a hypochondriac. “If something is wrong, I feel like I’m dying,” he said. “When I got the LASIK, they had to give me two Valiums. I was about to lay down and they (Paul imitates laser sound) … They tell you it’s going to be grainy for a couple of weeks. I had to put eye drops in for two weeks, four times a day. I was having panic attacks. “I couldn’t sleep. These are your eyes. They get dry. I was stressed out.”

Storyline: NBA Beefs
To recall back in 2019, Holmgren became the talk of social media after he crossed Curry and dunked the ball on him. The then-high school big man basically used Steph’s own move on him. Now, he just made it to the NBA, with the Oklahoma City Thunder using their second overall pick on him. Curry couldn’t be any prouder of what several of his camp’s alumni have accomplished, including Holmgren. While he will never forget how Chet embarrassed him, he said it’s “dope” that they are now going to face each other in the big boys’ league. “Chet hit me with my own move, little double behind the back … he finished it differently than I would though, I would have just pulled up from 3, he went to the basket and dunked on another dude. It’s pretty dope that he’s now in the league as the No. 2 pick,” Curry explained, per Bleacher Report.
