The Golden State Warriors have quickly taken control of the NBA Finals, dominating the Cleveland Cavaliers to the tune of an 110-77 victory in Game 2, giving them a 2-0 lead in the series.

Unlike Game 1 where he was very quiet, Stephen Curry showed flashes of brilliance on Sunday night while his teammates excelled around him, especially Draymond Green.

Given the wide margin in the final score, some reporters asked more general questions of Curry rather than have him harp on about a game that was over in the third quarter.

Eventually, Steph was asked about his favorite nickname that has been bestowed upon him. It wasn't the Chef, or the Splash Brothers title he shares with Klay Thompson, but rather a nickname that came his way during his college days at Davidson.


“My favorite one… Baby-faced assassin was the first one I ever got when I was in college. It was the first one that became popular so it has a special place in my heart, even though I have a bit more facial hair now.”
