Dwyane Wade explains the only way to 'slow down' Stephen Curry

Two-time NBA champion and back-to-back (2015-16) Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry has changed the landscape of the league forever with his limitless range, ability to finish at the basket and general skill with a basketball in his hands.

There is no stopping the Golden State Warriors point guard, and despite having what many considered to be a down year in the 2016-17 regular season he still managed to average 25.3 points on 46.8% from the field.

Despite boasting Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, the number 30 is considered the key to Golden State’s success and the difference he makes when on the court is evident. So the game plan for the other 29 teams in the association has to focus on limiting the Davidson product’s output.

That’s easier said than done. Many coaches and players have tried and failed to put the brakes on Curry. He can finish under the basket, he can hit shots from mid-range with ease, his range is endless and he seems to thrive under tight defence from opponents.

So how do you slow down Wardell Curry? Well, Chicago Bulls shooting guard and former Finals MVP Dwyane Wade has a theory: it all begins with Steph’s wife Ayesha.

Blue Man Hoop asked the 35-year-old how to stop Steph, and Wade responded: “Pray that every grocery store in the world go out of business and his wife can’t cook him any food. Whatever she’s cooking it’s working.”


It appears there’s no stopping Curry on his crusade to claim more championship rings. It helps that he plays on the most loaded roster in NBA history.

Having cruised to the championship a matter of months ago, the Dubs have somehow improved their roster and are watching as their rivals the Cleveland Cavaliers desperately attempt to get their roster in shape after Kyrie Irving’s trade demand.

Despite many Western Conference teams improving during the offseason, none of them appear prepared to topple the Warriors. Even if the Houston Rockets add Carmelo Anthony, they are still a couple of steps behind the behemoth that is Golden State.

Curry has already amassed a Hall of Fame-worthy career and will smash every three-point record in the books if he avoids any serious injuries. There are generational talents who alter the trajectory of sport and the North Carolina native certainly belongs in that category. Be prepared for more records to topple in the 2017-18 campaign.
