VIDEO: Stephen Curry transforms into Dirk Nowitzki with signature move
Curry has been in his bag this season, averaging 28.2 points, 5.5 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game, shooting 45% from the field.
The Warriors have gone from a bottom feeder team to a playoff-caliber team in only one year, fielding an entirely revamped team from last season.
Curry has been aggressive attacking the rim and has shot the lights out, as per usual, from the outside.
Just when you thought that Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry couldn’t get any more impressive, he decides to pull off the Dirk Nowitzki special.
Steph just pulled off the Dirk flawlessly.

Even though Curry is almost a full foot shorter than Dirk, the footwork and execution on the signature fadeaway is flawless.
The irony behind this clip is that it probably gives Dirk nightmares. The ‘Oakland’ jerseys that the Warriors are rocking tonight were created to resemble the ‘We Believe’ Warriors team.
That Warrior team- Baron Davis, Jason Richardson, Al Harrington and company- upset the number one seed Dallas Mavericks as the eight seed. Dirk Nowitzki had just won MVP and the Mavericks were poised to make the conference finals at the very least.
That is, until they ran into the We Believe Warriors.
Regardless of what transpired in the past, it’s great to see the legends leaving their mark in the NBA. Dirk Nowitzki was one of the best to ever do it, and his trademark fadeaway jump shot lives on.
