Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry made a 40-foot jumper from the tunnel in warm ups, smiled and coolly signed some autographs. Curry is a pretty intrepid shooter after the whistle blows, too.
But no one jacks it up like the New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith. Just ask $20 million-a-year Carmelo Anthony, who keeps asking Smith for the ball in vain. Smith’s propensity to fire from anywhere made for a good comment by a reader at Deadspin. Sure Curry’s shot is cool, but one commenter posted this:
Yeah, but is he cool enough to attempt that shot in an actual game?
– J.R. Smith
