It Must Be A Golden State Thing …

By Jeff Case

You’ve likely forgotten it, but back in 2010, Monta Ellis (then with the Warriors) made the viral video rounds with this over-the-head shot from the hallway at Oracle Arena.


Ellis’ teammate that season was none other than a precocious rookie named Steph Curry. While Curry would go on to be an All-Rookie First Team member and win three Rookie of the Month awards, perhaps Ellis’ ability to sink crazy shots from the tunnel rubbed off on him a little that season.

Check out this pretty amazing heave from Curry at practice the other day (although, admittedly, not as stellar as Ellis’ of three years ago), courtesy of

    Ellis’ shot is more entertainig and much more difficult

    The most difficult thing about Monta’s shot is the handshake he has with the third person in the tunnel:

    The shot is cake compared to this.
