Curry documentary series is almost here and is bursting with new insight and comments.

NBA: Playoffs-Houston Rockets at Golden State Warriors

The new Facebook Watch docuseries on Stephen Curry, “Stephen vs The Game,” from director Gotham Chopra, comes out this evening. But ahead of the release, they sent around a pretty cool promo blurb video that features Curry talking about some of the parallels between golf and basketball.

Though I’m not a big fan of Tiger Woods, and my golf game can only be described as “not great” it’s still interesting hearing Curry opine a bit about his second favorite sport. This series looks promising, so be sure to check it out after 5pm today. You can find it on Facebook (if you are on there), or [simply click this link here to watch.](

“The game of golf gets under my skin.” Curry says while facing the camera. “No matter how well you play, you can always play better - similar to basketball.” He goes on to talk about Woods and how his desire to always get better and “never being satisfied” resonates so strongly in Curry’s mind.

In an early look at the first episode, Curry dishes on his love for the game of golf and speaks about how Woods has inspired him as a champion and a developing player in a sport at which he is already undeniably elite.

Stephen vs The Game Episode 1: The Game

In the series’ premiere episode, Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors bring a third NBA Championship home to Oakland to cap the 2017-2018 season. With the help of his parents and wife Ayesha, Stephen sheds light on a childhood spent with a basketball in-hand. Stephen enjoys an all-too-brief respite from the grind of the nine-month NBA season before preparing to lead the Warriors into his 10th season once again with championship expectations.
