Watch Harlem Globetrotters try to mimic Stephen Curry's dribbling routine

BY Jovan Buha • January 15, 2016

Stephen Curry's pre-game shooting routine has risen to prominence this season, with fans coming to games hours before tip-off just to get a glimpse of the greatest shooter in the world.

While Curry's shooting is remarkable and arguably revolutionary, it's his pre-game ball-handling moves that've probably been more impressive. Anyone can get lucky and make a shot 50 feet from a basket; not many people can dribble two basketballs back and forth between their hands.

Before the Golden State Warriors thwarted the Los Angeles Lakers 116-98 on Thursday night, Curry went through his usual dribbling drills with a larger audience than usual. 

The Harlem Globetrotters were in town and wanted to see The Curry Show up close, even trying to mimic Curry's ball-handling, but to no avail:

The fact that the Globetrotters, who specialize in ball-handling and on-court trickery, can't even keep up with Curry shows just how advanced the reigning MVP's dribbling skills are. He has Allen Iverson's ball-handling ability with Steve Nash's off-the-dribble shooting range, yet he's probably better than either one at those things. 

Frankly, it's just not fair.
