Stephen Curry annihilates Spurs defense with another dazzling display of handles
Though the Golden State Warriors got off to a slow start to the 2020-21 season, two-time MVP and greatest player in franchise history Stephen Curry has got the team playing well.
On Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs, the gifted guard showcased his impressive dribble package by absolutely dusting the entire Spurs defense singled-handedly on the way to a smooth layup:

As you can see, Curry has the ball on a string, and he freezes two perimeter defenders with the hesitation and head-fake, which allows him to waltz to the bucket for an easy two.
Curry makes this look even better due to the fact he’s wearing the team’s City Edition jerseys, which are inspired by the team’s look during the memorable “We Believe” season of 2006-07, when they shocked the world by defeating the top-seeded Dallas Mavericks in six games.
By comparison, no one is shocked by Curry’s night-to-night brilliance. As the greatest shooter in NBA history, Curry has transformed the NBA in his image, as most games these days are decided by which team shoots better from deep.
While offenses are still reliant on getting to the paint, many times games can seem to be just a back-and-forth three-point jump-shooting contest, which is frankly fairly entertaining on its merits.
Who knows how the season will continue to shake out for Golden State, but Curry is still playing an extremely high level in his 11th season.
