Warriors’ Stephen Curry working as Riley’s 2nd grade substitute teacher amid NBA hiatus
With the NBA on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry has apparently found a part-time job. Appearing on the NBA’s Instagram Live with Los Angeles Lakers center JaVale McGee, the two-time MVP admitted that he serves as his daughter Riley’s 2nd grade substitute teacher.

As Curry narrated, he distributes the material once the teacher is done with their lecture. After that, Steph hilariously shared that Riley told her mom that dad is a three-star teacher. The three-time champion jokingly ranted about how his daughter treats him after investing a lot into her future.
It’s great to see NBA players keep up with each other during these trying times. Likewise, it’s also nice to see a side of our favorite athletes that we don’t see everyday.
Curry and McGee obviously built a nice bond when they played for two seasons together with the Dubs. With Golden State, McGee found a second life and revitalized his career as an effective player for the Warriors. He won two titles as a reserve center for Golden State.
In those two seasons, the shot blocking specialist averaged 5.5 points and 2.9 rebounds in just under 10 minutes per game. Though those numbers certainly didn’t jump out the page, but in his limited minutes, he made the most of his role and produced. Since then, McGee has found himself in a starter’s role with the Los Angeles Lakers. This season, McGee started in all of his 61 appearances with the Purple and Gold and is averaging 6.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks.
Meanwhile, Curry, prior to the NBA season’s abrupt halt, just came back from a broken hand injury he sustained at the start of the season. The Warriors had already been eliminated from playoff contention even before the coronavirus outbreak. Right now, they are looking forward to a very critical off-season, where they have a lot of important decisions to make with their roster.
