Yahoo- “It’s a different game today,” Curry told Spears. “I don’t know many shots he got up but he didn’t have a three-point line. A hundred? That would be tough. If I shot like I did in New Orleans and played full 48, maybe got 20 more shots up, I might [have] got 75-ish. That’s shooting the ball really well, too. A hundred, probably not.”
Goddamn it, do you see what we've done? We have created a monster. Did you hear this quote? Listen closely. Those are the words of a man on a mission. Words that would not have been uttered from that very same mouth 52 weeks ago. Last year Steph Curry was just happy to have an invite to the party. This year he's throwing the party and dancing on motherfuckin' tables in the middle of it. Last year Steph was walking up to buffet line asking nicely for another serving. This year he is piling 5 steaks on his plate at once, and knocking everyone else's over on the way back to his seat. "Casually talking about scoring 75 points in a game Steph Curry" is a Steph Curry we have never seen before. He's no longer like "golly gee, sure would be nice to win". Now he's like "it's not worth winning if you can't win big". My God, a couple people say the Warriors had a lucky road to the Championship and all the sudden the kid goes on a war path. It's as if 'NBA Live' is reality and Steph Curry has the controller. Dude just went in and boosted all his attributes by 10 points. As a Clippers fan, it's downright scary. Besides Swaggy P, the only players who would ever publicly proclaim that they can score 75 points in game are players that really could score 75 points in a game. I think this summer a lot of people questioned whether or not Steph Curry had the killer instinct of a Kobe Bryant or a Michael Jordan. Whether he had the drive to turn the Golden State Warriors into an all time great team. He is going out of his way to answer those questions loud and clear. Call it what you want. Confidence? Definitely. Cockiness? Maybe. Whatever it is, it lends itself to greatness.
