Stephen Curry is one of the best shooters in basketball history and is a main reason why the Golden State Warriors built a dynasty in the latter half of the last decade. Yet he is not an elite defender and he admitted that himself in an Instagram Live chat between him and Chris Paul. The two were discussing getting their ankles broken, figuratively of course, when Curry made the remark.
Paul mentioned that if you play defense long enough, you will be sent to the floor by a crossover. It's only a matter of time.
Paul learned that firsthand five years ago when Curry's handles sent him flailing to the floor. Curry responded with a smile and said he only plays defense half the time anyway.
Curry not always playing defense is not some revelation. HIs goal is to score as many points as possible and hang back on defense so he can set up an easy transition three.
Let's not pretend Curry's haters won't use this a fuel, though.
