Former player turned TNT analyst Charles Barkley sat down with President Barack Obama and discussed several different topics involving basketball. One thing that definitely stood out was the President’s thoughts on young guard Stephen Curry and his shooting ability.
“I gotta tell you, Curry is the best shooter I have ever seen,” Obama said. “I believe that.
“In terms of being able to, you know, off the dribble get his shot off from anywhere that fast, best I’ve ever seen.”
Obama is an avid NBA fan and knows a thing or two about the game so for him to make that claim about Curry is a pretty big deal. It’s great to see things turn around for Curry going from being snubbed last year to getting more fan votes than any other guard in the NBA and earning a starting spot in the All-Star game for the Western Conference.
Curry is currently averaging 24.6 points per game, 9.0 assists per game and 4.4 rebounds per game, which includes game winners and incredibly improbable shots that leave us in awe each night.
