Throwback: Watch Stephen Curry and Former LA Clippers’ Chris Paul in an Ankle-Twisting Battle

Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry is arguably one of the best players in the business. When he used to play for the Davidson Wildcats, he was touted to be the second coming of Allen Iverson. Now, however, many people argue that Curry has surpassed Iverson in titles and skill.

Chef Curry has lit up the NBA season after season with no signs of relent. He was part of the 73-9 Golden State Warriors squad which won the championship back in 2016. In fact, he was the most influential player on the roster as took teams apart in each game.

It was in this season that he won the first and only unanimous MVP award in the history of the league. Six years on, people still remember how he used to knock down threes from the logo in every game. However, something which will stand the test of time for many more years to come is the iconic crossover he did on Chris Paul.

That crossover from Curry has gone down as one of the most vicious spells of ball-handling ever seen in the NBA. Before that, everybody knew what Steph can come up with. However, seeing him do that, had everyone off their seats, including the Warriors bench.

Curry took the ball from his own half and drove to the paint. The Clippers had decided that CP3 was the one who will guard Curry all through the match. When Paul reached his spot, the “baby-faced assassin” dribbled the ball twice behind his back, and that was enough for Chris Paul to lose his balance. He lay there sprawled on the floor in front of Curry as he knocked down the jumper.

Stephen Curry – invoking fear in every defense’s minds

The way Chef Curry maneuvers the ball has never been seen before. Sure we can talk about the iconic crossover of MJ by Iverson, but doing that on a nightly basis is an entirely different story. With the league getting increasingly tougher over time, Curry has adapted his game to the fast-paced nature of games and has produced influential performances for the Dubs.

Even this year, the 33-year-old is an MVP candidate. Critics and analysts have talked about his form being even better than his unanimous MVP season. However, the MVP award is judged on team impact and the Warriors lie out of playoff contention at the moment. If Steve Kerr and his men can turn their season around, then Stephen Curry will surely be one of the frontrunners for the coveted award.
