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 Warriors.com:

    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.
