Due to a wrist injury, Rockets’ captain Patrick Beverly hasn’t been doing the pre-game handshakes and from the looks of Steph Curry’s reaction, the Warriors Captain felt a little disrespected by the Rockets sending seldom-used Nick Johnson as his replacement.
After the two player shook hands, Curry took a few steps, turned back around in disbelief and then shook his head at one of our favorite players in the league (he played in our first Ballislife All-American game!).
Curry then had all of us shaking our heads as he hit one ridiculous shot after another on his way to 34 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists in GM1.
As for Nick, he was a DNP but we still love him.
