Stephen Curry has 3-point contest with Drake
Stephen Curry was spotted shooting 3-pointers with none other than popular rapper Drake. The Golden State Warriors point guard wasn’t able to play more than a game after returning from a broken hand injury, but the flick of the wrist looks just fine as he engages in a 3-point shootout with the Raptors ambassador.

This will be the longest offseason Stephen Curry has experienced in a while after going through five straight trips to the NBA Finals. Yet the work never stops for the perennial sharpshooter, who enjoys some friendly competition from time to time.
Despite shooting from the college 3-point line, Drake managed to match Curry shot-for-shot for a while, as the two teed up jumpers at the OVO court.
Curry only played five games this season after injuring his left, non-shooting hand in the fourth game of the season, as Phoenix Suns center Aron Baynes landed awkwardly over it, causing the fracture and a four-month spell on the sidelines.
The injury broke a streak of 10 straight seasons shooting 3-pointers at a 40% clip, a record that is unmatched by any NBA player. His partner in crime Klay Thompson sat out the entire 2019-20 season and Draymond Green had his share of nights off.
Whenever the Warriors return to the court, their veterans should be well-rested and ready to take on the West again after finishing with the worst record in the league at 15-50 — now boasting the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA Draft.
