Steph Curry is (almost) perfect

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Golden State’s Stephen Curry has been about as good offensively as anyone we’ve ever seen this season, shooting 50-percent from the field and 45-percent on threes on his way to a unanimous second MVP award.

Stephen Curry plays football, soccer, baseball

Steph is such a fan, in fact, that he tweeted his support for Spieth a few days ago…

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Just a few days ago we saw Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis hitting a shot and sitting down before the ball even went in, Steph Curry-style. Well, with the Knicks in Oakland to play the Warriors tonight (10:30 p.m. EST, League Pass), I guess Porzingis figured it was as good a time as any to continue working on his Curry-inspired shots, and he attempted the same shot from the tunnel that has become a part of Curry’s pregame warmups…
