Steve Nash, Stephen Curry combine to create soccer basketball sport during Warriors practice
Golden State Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry has been out of the lineup due to an injury, but he is enjoying his time off with NBA legend Steve Nash.
Stephen Curry is working his way to recovery, as he was seen getting up shots during practice. However, that’s not the only thing that would raise hopes about his possible return soon. The 30-year-old sharpshooter was also caught doing soccer drills with the basketball…with no other than renowned soccer fanatic and Warriors consultant Steve Nash.

Curry is known as a huge golf fanatic, so seeing him play soccer (with the basketball) is a tad bit surprising. Perhaps, being around Nash helped him develop his soccer skills.
On another note, with the five-time All-Star practicing like that, it appears he has recovered from the groin injury that kept him out of the Warriors’ lineup for the past six games.
The Warriors could really use Curry’s help right now, having lost three straight games and dropping to fourth (12-6 record) in the Western Conference.
Before his injury, Curry is averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game. He is also shooting 51.5 percent from the field and 49.2 percent from three to start the season.
It will be interesting to see how well Curry will do when he comes back into the starting lineup. With the time he has missed, he will be a little rusty to start out, but he should be back to regular form after a game or two.
