Watch Stephen Curry lie down on the court to avoid a Giannis Antetokounmpo dunk

BY Andrew Lynch • February 20, 2017

Stephen Curry learned a very valuable lesson on Sunday night: never play defense during the All-Star Game.

After getting dunked on once by Giannis Antetokounmpo, the two-time MVP saw the Greek Freak coming the next time and decided to lie down on the court rather than risk another posterization:

A few possessions later, Curry tried his hand at rebounding — and Giannis punished him for his audacity once more:

So rude, Mr. Antetokounmpo.



LeBron James, meanwhile, showed off his Splash Bros.-esque range on the other end. Suffice it to say the 2017 All-Stars weren't exactly taking themselves too seriously in New Orleans.
