Golden State Warriors’ point guard Stephen Curry will reportedly be on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week, according to Bay Area Sports Guy.
In the wake of a 44-point, 11-assist performance against the San Antonio Spurs on Monday night, I think it’s time Warriors fans declare that Curry is getting the national exposure that he deserves.
The whole All-Star controversy is an ongoing battle. And with Curry putting on shooting display and after shooting display, the people still debating the topic have a solid claim. After all, the former Davidson product is averaging 27.1 points and 9.6 assists in 42.4 minutes per game during the playoffs. He’s also shooting 45.3 percent from three-point range.
During the regular season, Curry broke the all-time single season three-point record formerly set by Ray Allen. He’s also set a record for most three-pointers made through seven playoff games with 29. In English, he’s white-hot.
He was certainly white-hot in the third quarter of Monday’s Game 1, compiling 22 points.
Now, there is such a thing called the “Sports Illustrated Jinx.” You see it in the NFL more than you do in the NBA, but the same sentiment applies to Curry.
At this point, though, seemingly nothing can stop his smooth jump shot from tickling the twine regularly.
