In early August, Steph Curry went viral for giving some expert advice to young basketball players at a basketball camp. On September 10, Curry was again in the spotlight for explaining why off-ball players shouldn’t stand around the perimeter and wait for the ball. Curry called it the ‘weakest move in basketball.’
Throughout his career, the Golden State Warriors guard has received endless praise for his commitment to moving without the ball and the problems that it’s caused opposing defense. And now, it would appear Curry wants young hoopers to adopt his high work ethic without the ball in their hands.

Curry and the Warriors are just a few weeks from the start of training camp, where Golden State will begin preparing for the upcoming season. After adding multiple new faces during the summer and tying Draymond Green down to a fresh new contract, the Warriors will have their eyes set on a deep playoff run and what they hope will be an NBA Finals appearance.
