Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry didn’t just rest on his laurels at practice on Thursday coming off a 37-point performance, which included seven 3-pointers to boost his nine-game season total to a ridiculous 55.
The three-time NBA champion probably has more than enough firepower alongside him in Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson to just take it easy for a while. He also doesn’t exactly need extra training amid what’s shaping up to be the best shooting performance of his record-breaking career.
And yet, this week, with numbers that have him on pace to shatter his own 3-point marks, Curry didn’t just settle for Warriors practice.
He stayed late to work with … the Harlem Globetrotters.
The longtime trick artists are in the Bay Area for a six-game start to their Fan Powered World Tour, so three of their stars — Lili “Champ” Thompson, Zeus McClurkin and Hammer Harrison — paid a visit to the Warriors’ gym after Golden State’s Thursday practice to do drills with Curry and teammate Quinn Cook. As seen in practice footage, the group worked on everything from 4-point shots, which the Globetrotters introduced in 2017, to the three-man weave, with Curry at the center of the latter.
It was a match made in heaven, if we’re being quite honest. Who other than Stephen Curry, in the NBA, makes for a better pairing with the Globetrotters? And who other than Stephen Curry would make for a better future Globetrotter?
