Chris Bosh: Stephen Curry can shoot from 'his car in the parking lot'
The Golden State Warriors host the Miami Heat for the first meeting between the two NBA Finals hopefuls on Monday night.
Heat All-Star power forward Chris Bosh has endured his fair share of success, winning two championships with the Heat in 2012 and 2013, yet this season's Warriors have still somehow found a way to impress him, citing the team's remarkable internal improvement, according to the San Francisco Chronicle:
“It’s spectacular,” Bosh told reporters when asked about their 35-2 start. “They’re playing amazing basketball. … A lot of their guys have come back improved, including their best player. It’s just a collective punch, dealing with those guys.”
Bosh continued his praise of the Warriors, particularly reigning MVP Stephen Curry, claiming he knows exactly what Curry's going to do -- but there's almost no way to stop it:
“Steph is going to be dribbling the ball 82 times in 24 seconds,” Bosh said. “He can pass with either hand. He can shoot the ball as soon as he gets out of his car in the parking lot.”
That might sound like hyperbole, but it could be true.
Have you seen Curry's warm-up routine? Dude can effortlessly shoot from the locker-room tunnel. If anyone actually had parking-lot range, it has to be Curry, right? He's previously demonstrated his range extends almost to half-court:
And even out beyond the 3-point line, Curry has the ability to knock down ridiculous shots that other people wouldn't even attempt:
Bosh is probably just exaggerating -- unless, of course, he's foreshadowing the next evolution of Curry as one of the NBA's best scorers.
