Earlier this month, Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry cemented himself as the greatest shooter in the world. Not only did he surpass Ray Allen to take the top spot as the all-time three-point leader, but he is also now the first NBA player to ever make 3,000 three-pointers.
During the Warriors’ stunning 20-point loss to the Lakers last Friday night, Steph Curry didn’t hit a single 3-pointer. It snapped a streak that saw Curry hit at least one 3-pointer in 157 consecutive games that stretched all the way back to November 2013.
Are the NBA Finals rigged? That’s what Ayesha Curry, wife of Golden State Warriors’ guard and reigning league MVP Stephen Curry, tweeted last night.

They were up by eight entering the fourth quarter of Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals, and things were looking good. Russell Westbrook was nearing a triple double. Kevin Durant was firing on all cylinders. The team was jelling, and they were close to doing what had once seemed impossible: knocking off the best team in NBA regular season history.

In the least surprising news of the NBA season, ESPN’s Mark Stein is reporting that Steph Curry will win the NBA MVP award for the second straight year. The announcement will reportedly be made later this week, with speculation that the 28-year-old Warriors star could become the first unanimous MVP selection in NBA history.
Stephen Curry’s Olympic plans may be uncertain at the moment, but if he does decide to play, he’ll have a “USA” colorway of the Under Armour Curry 2 to lace up. US11 shared an early image of the sneaker today, which is scheduled to release later this month.
