During a recent interview with Dime Magazine, Steph Curry was asked if he had a favorite move of his from the past season. I was expecting a “don’t know” or something pretty generic but Curry hit the mag with an answer as complex as the actual move.
“The four-dribble combo to an off-balance three was probably my favorite one of the year because I — for the life of me — couldn’t tell you what was going through my head when I was doing it.”
“I had 100 percent confidence that it was the right decision at the time, but I just don’t know — once you start to commit to a move — where the creativity came from. I’ve done all those moves at some point in my life, but it was just the perfect choreography of weaving through traffic and them getting a shot of coach Kerr with his hands up like, ‘WHAT ARE YOU DOING, PASS THE BALL… good shot.’ That kind of deal, so it was pretty fun.”
If that move that sounds like a pain-in-the-ass move to try on a video game doesn’t sound familiar, here’s the Chef hitting Chris Paul and the Clippers with it.
Jeff Van Gundy said it might be the best shot he’s ever seen and after the game Coach Kerr said “Nothing he does surprises me anymore.”
A modest sounding Curry talked about the shot as if it was just another jump shot.
“I got a little bit of breathing room,” said Curry who only scored 12 points in the Warriors win. “Just a confidence shot.”
The shot was so amazing that it made people forget Curry also did this to Chris Paul in the same game.
