Jamal Murray can’t help but laugh while watching himself follow Stephen Curry around during a game this season.
Stephen Curry and Jamal Murray have to rank amongst the nicest and most humorous players in NBA history. While both players are used to inspiring fans on the court, they almost consider it their mission at times to be just as funny off it.
As the NBA community knows, Jamal Murray went through a tragic ACL tear this season caused by an awkward landing during the game. But, despite the injury, the player showed some serious heart by traveling with his teammates for games and helping them in warmups before games. And now, the player is using his off-time to do some reactions on social media as well.
Recently, a fan posted a close-up video of Murray following Stephen Curry as the latter couldn’t stop moving even as the game had stopped. And the Nuggets star couldn’t help but let his thoughts on the hilarious incident be known.

At this point, everyone knows how unguardable Stephen Curry is. On the ball, he is one of the best in the league and makes just about anyone look like Bambi on ice. However, it’s his movement off the ball that makes him special.
The player infamously never stops moving during a possession. It’s to the point where, if you aren’t paying attention to him, it almost seems like he’s popping in and out of reality.
To combat this, the defender needs to be on him at all times. Even if he is only moving around during a jump ball, as Jamal Murray displays here.

In the video, Stephen Curry was clearly messing with him. And the priceless face Jamal Murray makes at the end makes it clear that he knew as well.
Jokes aside though, for a player who loves basketball as much as the Nuggets star, it must be very difficult for him to even look at game footage of himself right now. The talent and joy he plays the sport with adds so much to the game. And we really hope to see him back out on the court very soon.
