The NBA reacts to Golden State’s historic season


VIDEO: Warriors Numbers

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — With their win last night over the Memphis Grizzlies, the Golden State Warriors pushed their record to 73-9, setting a record for the best regular-season mark in NBA history. They broke a record set by the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, who finished 72-10, and a record many people thought might never be broken. Here’s how people from around the NBA, including some Warriors themselves, reacted to Golden State’s record-setting evening…

Stephen Curry really wanted Jordan Spieth to win The Masters

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERStephen Curry has become one of the most popular players in the NBA today, and Curry’s popularity is so strong that it can be easy to forget that Curry also has athletes and people he roots for. Golf, for instance, is one of Curry’s main hobbies, and one of his favorite golfers is last year’s Master’s champ Jordan Spieth.

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

And this weekend, even as the Warriors were in the final days of their chase for 73 wins, Curry clearly had golf on the brain…

A decade of the NBA on Twitter

So, to celebrate Twitter’s tenth birthday, we got into the wayback machine and checked out some of our favorite NBA people’s first tweets…

Kristaps Porzingis continues honing Steph Curry shots

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…

The Harlem Globetrotters have figured out how to stop Steph Curry

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERSteph Curry is the NBA’s leading scorer, so there’s not really any NBA team this season that has been able to stop him. But what about a team that’s not in the NBA? Last night, the Harlem Globetrotters took to Twitter and showed that they have found a way to stop Stephen Curry…

Kristaps Porzingis channels Steph Curry

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERStephen Curry has become known this season for celebrating even before his shots go in. And as we saw earlier this week, that has started to spread to his teammates, as Andrew Bogut demonstrated. And now it may be spreading to other teams. Check out this Vine of Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis at practice, as he sinks the shot from behind the backboard, and turns to sit down even before the ball has gone in…

Steph Curry sinks full-court putt

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERSteph Curry is not only a terrific basketball player, he’s apparently nearly as good on the golf course, as we’ve seen him be open about his love for the links through the years. Yesterday at Warriors’ shootaround in Oakland, the Warriors got a visit from Lydia Ko, the number one golfer on the LPGA tour. We’ve seen Steph Curry make all kinds of long shots on the basketball court this season. Well, yesterday Curry apparently “sank” a putt the length of the basketball court.

Elementary school kids cool off Steph Curry

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The only certain way anybody has been able to cool off Stephen Curry this season has been Draymond Green, through using a cup of water. So yesterday, while making an appearance at an Oakland elementary school, a bunch of students got the chance to try and cool off the MVP…

Andrew Bogut celebrates Steph Curry shot earlier than ever

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — If there’s any player in the NBA whose shots are likely to go in, even before the shots have been released, that person is most likely Steph Curry. After all, Curry is making 51-percent of the three-pointers field goals he takes this season, and 46-percent of the three-pointers he attempts. So last night in the Warriors/Magic game, when Andrew Bogut tipped the ball out to an open Curry at the three-point line, it was a safe assumption that Curry would make the shot. But check out how early Bogut got his celebration on in this video: Bogut throws up his right hand and starts running the other direction before Curry has even taken the shot. Actually, he celebrates so soon that he almost contests Curry’s shot, and has to switch to a lefty celebration.

Steph Curry gives shoes to fan in Orlando

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Fans of the Golden State Warriors come out to see them on the road everywhere they play. And if it wasn’t enough that Steph Curry went for 51 points last night in Orlando during the Warriors’ win over the Magic, but as Curry left the floor after the game, he picked out a fan celebrating a birthday and made sure his game-worn Under Armour kicks got hand-delivered…
