Stephen Curry nails half-court sit-down shot

Published Add your comment

Following a disappointing end to the 2015-16 season, the summer is all about rest and recuperation for Stephen Curry. Having pulled out of consideration for the Olympic Games, the two-time MVP will be looking to return fully fit after injuries plagued his playoff campaign.

Despite not playing since June, there are no signs of rust for the 28-year-old. Shooting from the halfway line became a ritual of sorts for Curry last season, but he took it to another level at the Warriors' Basketball Camp. It seems he doesn't even need to stand up anymore.

A video has emerged online of the scoring champion sat at half court before launching a shot that found nothing but net, much to the delight of the youngsters in attendance.

It should be no surprise, Curry made it look too easy at times last season, becoming the first player in NBA history to make over 400 threes in a season.

His performances in the playoffs were way off what we saw in the regular season and the desire to get revenge should only spur the three-time All-Star on to achieve even more greatness next season.

The incredible totals he achieved in 2015/16 may dip somewhat with the addition of Kevin Durant, but you should still expect to see the point guard pulling up from unprecedented range and making it look simple.

Durant's arrival will be great for all involved with the Warriors and Curry will be more than willing to sacrifice individual honours to wrestle the Larry O'Brien trophy back from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
