Steph Curry talks Boogie and NBA Twitter on The Bill Simmons Podcast

Steph Curry talks Boogie and NBA Twitter on The Bill Simmons Podcast

Not surprisingly, this is a must-listen. There are few professional athletes that are as fascinating to listen to as Stephen Curry. Whether it’s a post-game media session or an in-depth interview, the Golden State Warriors superstar always gives listeners everything they could want from a celebrity and premier athlete. He’s eloquent, and willing to dive deep into subjects, but he’s also light-hearted and fun. He’s hilarious, intelligent, and open to discussing virtually any topic. What more can you want? So, naturally, any podcast with Curry is a must-listen, and that’s doubly...

A star, a coach and a style: Why the Utah Jazz are the greatest threat to the Warriors in the next five years

A star, a coach and a style: Why the Utah Jazz are the greatest threat to the Warriors in the next five years

For all the talk about the Rockets, Lakers and Spurs, we might be forgetting the greatest threat to Warriors: the Utah Jazz. In the 2012-2013 season, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry led a Mark Jackson-coached Warriors to a second place finish in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference. Harrison Barnes, David Lee and Andrew Bogut rounded out the rest of a starting lineup (Draymond was still relegated to the bench). The team finished 47-35 in the regular season, and the Dubs won a playoff series against the Denver Nuggets before folding against to the San Antonio Spurs in a 4-2 series...

Steph Curry debuted a basketball camp just for young women

Steph Curry debuted a basketball camp just for young women

Outstanding. This is beyond cool. Many NBA stars have basketball camps, as an opportunity to give back to their community, interact with fans, and help lead the next generation of hoopers. These camps are, not surprisingly, dominated by boys and young men, and often a place where girls and young women are either not allowed, or don’t feel particularly comfortable. Stephen Curry is changing that. He just unveiled his latest camp with the Golden State Warriors, called the “It’s Our Game” basketball camp. And it is only for women. The future is bright! Excited for my inaugural...

CJ McCollum is still talking about the Warriors

CJ McCollum is still talking about the Warriors

The Blazers’ shooting guard appears to be heavily invested in hating on the Warriors. CJ McCollum appears to be a little bit obsessed with the Golden State Warriors. The shooting guard for the Portland Trail Blazers has spent a rather shocking amount of time this summer talking about the Warriors, and expressing his displeasure that players like Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins have joined the “superteam”. Earlier in the summer, McCollum had Durant on his podcast, where the two playfully bantered, with McCollum saying he was mad at Durant and Cousins. That led to a handful of...

Gold-Blooded Dagger Awards: Most Disrespectful Shots Of The Splash Bros-era

Gold-Blooded Dagger Awards: Most Disrespectful Shots Of The Splash Bros-era

The third installment of the highly popular “Gold-Blooded Dagger Awards” continue as we take a look back at the most humiliating displays of arrogant shooting in the Splash Bros-era. Welcome to the third, and final installment of the Gold-Blooded Dagger Awards. The polls are already raging for our other two pieces in this collection: “The Shots That Ran LeBron James Out Of Cleveland”, and “Buzzer Beaters”. Now, we travel into the “Most Disrespectful” category. There were thousands to choose from, so I had to follow my gut in curating which shots truly humiliated the Golden...

Video: Quinn Cook gifts his mom a brand new Range Rover

This is outstanding. Some feel-good stories simply never get old. And the “gift your parents something nice for their support after you achieve success” feel-good story is about as good as it gets. The participant this time is Quinn Cook. After spending a few years fighting for his role in professional basketball, Cook is finally able to cash the kind of checks that basketball players dream of. After leaving Duke in 2015 and going undrafted, Cook spent all of the 2015-16 season in the G-League. In 2016-17, he spent most of the year in the G-League, though he did make his NBA debut....

Gold-Blooded Dagger Awards: Buzzer Beaters

Tick tock, we don’t stop! The Splash Bros-era shooting awards continue as we ask GSoM about some of the most devastating buzzer beaters during the building of the Golden Dynasty. 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Dagger. Sometimes it takes the pressure of the dying clock to unleash the most gold-blooded of shots to an opponent’s soul. —Me, just now Hello! Thank you for joining us here at GSoM for another fascinating trip down memory lane for you, filed under “Gold-Blooded Daggers”. I have taken the time to curate some of the greatest shots in the Splash Bros-Era, and separated them into...

Video: Andre Iguodala behind the scenes at the PGA Championship

The Warriors sixth man had himself a time on the golf course. It was a big week for golf and the Golden State Warriors. While Steph Curry was competing in the Web.Com Tour Ellie Mae Classic, Andre Iguodala was at one of the world’s biggest events: The PGA Championship. Iguodala, who is a huge golf fan (and often spends his off days golfing with Curry and Klay Thompson), went to the Bellerive Country Club in Missouri to take on the huge event. Not only that, but he did some work for TNT with their coverage of the event, which surely was a blast for Iguodala, who is very comfortable and...

Gold-Blooded Dagger Awards: The Shots That Ran LeBron James Out of Cleveland

Join GSoM as we reflect on the three-point bombs that changed the course of NBA history. Today’s collection revolves around the gut-punches the Dubs delivered to the Cavs in the Finals that crushed “The Land” for good, The Splash Bros-era Golden State Warriors are the greatest shooting team in the history of basketball. They have perfected timely long-range buckets, the kind that vacuum up momentum and send opposing franchises into bottomless pits of shame and defeat. I refer to these shots as Gold-Blooded Daggers. I have taken the time to curate the greatest of these shots, separate...

Steph Curry finishes last at the Ellie Mae Classic

Steph Curry finishes last at the Ellie Mae Classic

The MVP had some highlights, but ultimately struggled on day too of the golf tournament. It feels a tiny bit disingenuous to have such a negative headline, given that Stephen Curry is a professional basketball player first and foremost, and an amateur golfer. But still, there’s no avoiding the sad reality: Curry struggled mightily on day two of the Ellie Mae Classic golf tournament, and finished in last place. After finishing the first day of the professional tournament at one-over par, Curry had a bogey-filled day two, in which he shot 16-over par. Despite the strong first day, the...

Warriors sign Marcus Derrickson to an Exhibit 10 contract

Warriors sign Marcus Derrickson to an Exhibit 10 contract

After impressing in Summer League, Derrickson has earned a chance to come to camp. Marcus Derrickson impressed the Golden State Warriors at the Las Vegas Summer League. Heck, while it’s not nearly as important, he also impressed me. So it’s not a huge surprise that the team decided to offer Derrickson, an undrafted free agent from Georgetown, an Exhibit 10 contract. Sources: Undrafted Georgetown forward Marcus Derrickson has agreed to sign with the Warriors on an Exhibit 10 contract. He averaged 13 points/five rebounds in eight summer league games for Golden State.— Shams Charania...

Steph Curry golf update: He’s very good

Steph Curry golf update: He’s very good

To nobody’s surprise, Steph is impressing on the links. Sadly there are no NBA games this time of year, so we can’t update you on how Stephen Curry the basketball player is doing. But we can update you on how Stephen Curry the golfer is doing! Update: Very well. For the second year in a row, Curry is competing in the Ellie Mae Classic in Hayward, and he is greatly impressing the crowd. His first-day score of 71 was just one-over par, and put him eight shots off of the lead. Stephen Curry ends his first round at the Ellie Mae Classic +1, with a score of 71 on the day after hitting...
