If you listened to any clips of Steph Curry talking at the 2019 NBA All-Star Game, you probably noticed that the Golden State Warriors star was using some funny phrases now and again. They weren’t enough to make you think something was up, just Steph being his usual endearing self.
But it turned out something was up. Curry had teamed up with The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to make a rather hilarious clip. Fallon gave Curry three phrases - “Energizer bunny,” “Flippin’ pancakes”, and “Wham, bam, can of ham” - and the two-time MVP was tasked with working them into his media availability.
The result was pretty hilarious.
All I can say after watching that is: Well done, Steph. The way he worked those phrases in, without giving anything away, was rather masterful.
These kinds of things are part of what make All-Star weekend so much fun. Athletes get to be human, show off some of their personality, and be silly. What’s not to like?
