Warriors’ Stephen Curry has hilarious ‘admission’ on players saying they’re staying in shape
Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry jokingly threw his fellow NBA players under the bus by letting his suspicions known on an Instagram Live session with his brother Seth Curry of the Dallas Mavericks.
The Warriors guard asked Seth what he’s been up to since the league suspended play due to the coronavirus pandemic, and while in the midst of describing his work out routine, the elder Curry cut him off and said every player starts off by saying that they’re staying in shape.
“I feel like everyone thinks their strength coach is watching. First thing they say is they’re working out. I would have said the same thing.”
The Warriors’ sharpshooter did, however, admit that he would have said the same thing if someone asked him.
While it’s been a long while since the NBA had a case of a notable player returning extremely out of shape (with the likes of Shawn Kemp and Vin Baker of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics serving as cautionary tales of wasted careers), teams are still treating their players’ health during the indefinite lull as a serious matter.
Some players have no such problem with staying in shape having their own home gym setups (particularly the megastar athletes firmly entrenched in their respective cities) but most players don’t have the same luxury living in apartments that have publicly shared gyms. Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo even admitted recently that he himself doesn’t have a hoop on his crib.
That being said, most teams are making sure that their players are in-game shape at all times even if the season is indeed looking bleak.
