On the Golden State Warriors training day, Stephen Curry showcased some of his insane 1-on-1 skills to the rookie Jonathan Kuminga.
Stephen Curry is one of the most unstoppable players in today’s generation. For over 13 years, the Golden State Warriors sharpshooter has been mesmerising us with his jaw-dropping long-distance shots. With the way he uses the three-point line, Steph has completely revolutionised how modern basketball is played.
This past season too, Curry was absolutely terrific. Calling his performance from the 2020-2021 season incredible would be an understatement. The Warriors leader put up a league-high 32 points while averaging 5.8 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, on an efficient 48/42/91 shooting split.
Chef Curry got selected to his 7th All-Star game, 7th All-NBA team, was an MVP finalist, won his 2nd -ever scoring title, all while leading a rather inexperienced without the likes of Klay Thompson. Oh, and he managed to achieve all these incredible feats while playing a majority of the season on a broken tailbone.
Entering his 13th NBA season, The Baby-Faced Assassin looks stronger, more built and deadlier than ever.

Now, newly drafted Kuminga has a lot to learn in the league, and his leader just taught him one of the most important lessons… guarding Stephen Curry is the most difficult job in the NBA.
