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 true when it’s a popular, highly entertaining podcast that he’s appearing on. That happened this week, when Curry joined famous sports personality and founder of The Ringer Bill Simmons, for the latest episode of The Bill Simmons Podcast.
Curry and Simmons spend nearly an hour and a half discussing everything under the basketball sun, and, not surprisingly, it’s full of brilliant soundbites from number 30.
Curry had some amazing nuggets, especially this one about the relationship between Steve Kerr and Draymond Green:
Coach’s first year, we were doing some five-on-five drill. It was early season, and Draymond loves talking trash to the whole team—doesn’t matter if it’s me. Shaun Livingston was posting me up on the block and I had no chance to try to contest his shot. And he did a little turnaround, a Shaun Livingston vintage turnaround . . . Draymond was like, “He’s too small, Dot! He’s too small, Dot! Baby food!” Yelling all that stuff in the middle of practice, and he’s on my team. I’m like, “Bro, come on.”
If you don’t have time to listen to the entire podcast, you can read some excerpts from it here. But I cannot strongly enough recommend making the time to listen to Curry chop it up with Simmons.
