AS imposing as he was during Golden State’s remarkable run to the NBA championship last year, superstar Steph Curry admitted he still has a chink in his armor that needs to be rectified.
And he has his mother Sonya to thank for.
The reigning NBA MVP said he needs to lessen his turnovers, which he already tried to do last season by having a bet with his mother.
“Me and my mom had a bet during the NBA season,” disclosed Curry, who arrived in the country Saturday for the Manila stop of his Under Armour Asian Roadshow.
“She lets me have two turnovers a game. If I go over two, I have to pay her a little bit of money. But if I get under two, I get to have that back."
“I averaged 3.1 turnovers (last season), so you can do the math who won that agreement," said the 27-year-old prolific gunner with a sly grin.
Turning serious, the other half of the famed ‘Splash Brothers’ said he's focused on cutting down again on his turnovers in the coming NBA season, especially with him serving as the engine that powers the high-octane offense of the Warriors.
"So that's what I want to work on. Take a little bit of money back from my mom. Lower turnovers this time,” stressed the son of former NBA player Dell Curry.
