Anthony Davis, James Harden, and Stephen Curry to Grace Cover of ‘NBA 2K16’

The group cover is back

In 2013, NBA 2K sported 3 superstars on their cover: Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose, and went on to place one of those stars–Kevin Durant–by himself on the cover of the game two years later, on NBA 2K15. This year, three people grace the cover once again.

2k16

MVP and MVP runner-up, Stephen Curry and James Harden, grace the cover of NBA 2K16 along with Anthony Davis, who just had a breakout year that had him in the MVP conversation for much of the regular season, before the race was pretty much whittled down to Curry and Harden. The game will also feature direction from Spike Lee, who took charge of the MyCareer mode, which is quickly beoming the 2K franchise’s most popular draw.

It’s only the second time the game has featured three cover athletes on the same cover. In 2012, Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson were all cover stars, but they each had their own individual covers.

Stephen Curry’s Daughter Sang Big Sean at the Podium Last Night

 

Forget that her dad’s probably the greatest shooter of all-time. Riley Curry is the one who can’t miss.

Last night was a historic one for the Golden State Warriors, and a career-defining moment for Stephen Curry. The 2015 NBA MVP led his team to victory in Game 5 of the WCF last night, placing him and his squad of shooters and voracious defenders in what will surely be an NBA Finals for the ages. It was a celebratory moment for all wearing blue and yellow, and though Riley Curry didn’t have on a jersey, she took to the podium to celebrate as well.

How about some Big Sean and Drake? Encore, encore!

Epic Troll: ESPN Analyst, Michael Smith, Brought his Daughter to Work Today

Michael Smith trolls his colleagues, brings 2-year old daughter Mya to work

Michael Smith‘s ESPN talk show, His & Hers, which he hosts with Jemele Hill, is quickly becoming one of the more popular sports talk segments on ESPN. Probably because of things like this.

Last night, in case you hadn’t heard, Stephen Curry brought his 2-year old daughter, Riley, to the podium with him following the Warriors’ Game 1 victory over the Houston Rockets. She then proceeded to steal the show. Riley interrupted her father, waved flamboyantly at reporters, and even crawled under the table and peeked out from under the tablecloth in an all too cute one-child show. The internet (naturally) erupted in googly-eyed tweets and memes in support of Curry’s adorable daughter.

However, not everyone was amused. A few of ESPN’s biggest names (Skip Bayless, Brian Windhorst) and a Bleacher Report writer, Ric Bucher, took to the airwaves and Twitter to express their discontent with Riley’s stunts, citing the fact that she was merely interfering with an extremely sensitive and tight process: meeting the deadlines of publications.

 

Michael Smith, however, did not air on the side of his colleagues. He argued with Thompson that there was nothing wrong with the Currys’ 2-man show last night, and pointed out that the analysts that appear to be up in arms on the subject, don’t have 2-year old kids of their own that they have to deal with after a long day. Following that point, Smith beckoned for his own 2-year old daughter, Mya, to join him on the set of, an obvious poke at the #KidsNotAllowed bear. Unlike Riley though, Mya was not ready for her close-up. As soon as Smith got ready to settle in with his daughter in front of the cameras, Mya made it very clear that she preferred to be behind the scenes. You can watch that hilarious clip here.

It ain’t for everybody, as Jay Z would say.

Stephen Curry’s Daughter, Riley, Steals the Show at Post-Game Presser

Riley Curry has more than her share of fun after dad squeaks out a Game 1 victory

Last night was supposed to be about the regular season MVP and MVP runner-up, Stephen Curry and James Harden, battling for home-court advantage in what’s expected to be an entertaining, if not contentious, Western Conference Finals. For most of the evening, it was just that. After falling behind by 16 points in the first half, Curry (34 pts, 6 rbs, 5 asts) helped his team battle back, and eventually hold off the resilient Rockets, and a 4th quarter comeback attempt led by Harden, who fell just an assist short of a triple-double (28 pts, 11 rbs, 9 asts).

However, following the sound of the 4th quarter buzzer, the story line quickly changed, and Stephen wasn’t the Curry taking over. His daughter, Riley Curry, who insisted that she be included in her dad’s post-game presser, quickly stole the show. As her father glanced at the night’s stat sheet and did his best to answer reporters’ questions despite his daughter’s antics, he quickly became the 2nd most interesting person in his family. Even ESPN’s cameraman panned towards the far left of the table at which Stephen Curry was seated to catch some of Riley’s antics. You can see some of the adorable footage above.

Nike Passed on Opportunity To Sign Stephen Curry to Endorsement Deal 2 Years Ago

Chef Curry was slept on quite a bit in his past! & even still today! 

 

Stephen Curry has been slept on quite a few in his past and even as the NBA’s MVP he is still slept on by many. Nike had Steph under their wing for his time at Davidson and his first four years in the NBA. When time to negotiate a brand new contract Nike had given up on Stephen saying that they didn’t believe he would be able to sell a signature sneaker. They only offered Curry 2.5 million each year and didn’t want to go any higher. Under Armour took full advantage of the steal and gave Curry what he deserved, I mean he is the NBA’s Most valuable player, ya know. Given the opportunity to release his first ever signature sneaker Curry was ecstatic to have the Under Armour Curry One. Curry keeps in mind every time he plays on how Nike snubbed him and why they did it. His MVP season is not over yet the warriors have a championship to win and with the way Curry is playing they might just do that. Star power is all-over the NBA but give it up for Chef Curry and his remarkable MVP season this year.

“IT’S ONE OF THE HOTTEST SHOES IN BASKETBALL,” SAID ADAM PEAKE, UNDER ARMOUR’S EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF GLOBAL MARKETING. “AND THEY’RE SELLING FROM KIDS SIZES ALL THE WAY UP TO ADULTS. THERE ARE 450 PLAYERS IN THE NBA AND WE’RE PROUD THAT THE ONE MVP HAS OUR SHOES ON HIS FEET.”

The Golden State Warriors Have Come Out To Play

Stephen Curry will be presented with his MVP in front of his home fans tonight at Oracle arena as the Golden State Warriors play game 2 of the Western Conference Semi-finals against the Memphis Grizzles. The blessings just seem to keep rolling as the Warriors seem to be team to beat in the playoffs. Coming off a 67-win season the Warriors have dominated the postseason so far, being one of two teams to be undefeated in the playoffs (Washington Wizards). They clinched the #1 seed throughout the NBA playoffs, their General Manager Bob Myers won Executive of the Year, and coach Steve Kerr along with forward Draymond Green finished 2nd respectively in Coach of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year. Everything is pointing towards the Warriors hosting up the Larry O’Brien trophy at the end of the season. If Curry can end the season with the NBA title, he has a chance be only  the 3rd player in the last 20 years to win both the regular season and finals MVP (Jordan, James).
