Video: Warriors’ Stephen Curry casually drains underhanded half-court shot
Training camp hasn’t even gotten underway yet, but Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry appears to already be in top form. The two-time MVP winner was recently caught on film at a basketball camp casually sinking an underhanded heave all the way from half court:

The great part about this amazing shot is the fact that Curry did not even look like he was trying. The attempt looked so completely effortless on his release, that it was actually a bit surprising that it found the bottom of the net. Then again, we wouldn’t expect anything less from one of the greatest shooters of all time.
Curry will definitely need to bring all his tricks out of the bag for the coming season, as he and the Warriors face a challenging year ahead. Kevin Durant is long gone and Klay Thompson is expected to sit out a large chunk of the year, so a lot will be riding on Curry’s shoulders.
Fortunately, the Dubs were able to bring in some reinforcement, which comes in the form of former Brooklyn Nets All-Star point guard D’Angelo Russell. Sure, the 23-year-old will need some time to get accustomed to playing in head coach Steve Kerr’s system while also sharing the floor with one of the best players in the game today. Nevertheless, there’s definitely going to be fireworks in Oakland once Russell gets it going.
The bad news for the Warriors is that the Western Conference got even more ruthless. This will certainly make life difficult for Golden State, with some pundits even going as far as saying that the team might struggle to secure a playoff spot this year.
