Stephen Curry has long since proven that he belongs to the elite not just of today’s NBA but of all time. If he’s not the greatest shooter ever, he’s certainly on the short list. He’s completely redefined the way NBA offenses work and what constitutes a good shot. He’s also been on an insane run lately and has been basically unstoppable.

On this play, he’s on the right side of the court when he gets a quick pass from Draymond Green and launches a quick three, which he hits - nothing surprising there.

However, look at his confidence. He lets the shot go and heads downcourt before it reaches the rim.

Like way before. He doesn’t even bother to make sure it was in.

It’s the kind of confident arrogance that Michael Jordan and Larry Bird once had.
