Stephen Curry is in the midst of an incredible start to the 2021-22 NBA season. His Golden State Warriors are 6-1, he is averaging nearly 27 points per game, and at the moment he appears to be the frontrunner to claim MVP this year.
One of the reasons for Curry’s success is the fact that he is an absolute wizard with the basketball. Anything he wants to do, he does.

Fortunately, aside from being a little embarrassing, Curry’s miss had zero impact on the game. The Warriors ultimately prevailed 114-92.
This game carried a special extra little bit of weight because of the history Golden State has with Hornets star LaMelo Ball. You will recall, they had the opportunity to draft him – only to lie to him and take and someone else instead.

The decision continues to haunt the franchise, as they maneuver to potentially acquire worse versions of the youngster via trade.
Big picture, this looks like it could be a very promising year for the Warriors. Is a championship within the realm of possibilities? Time will tell.
