Chef Curry is COOKIN

Steph Curry is off to a crazy hot ridiculous monster unreal start. This dude is averaging 36 points, and 5 rebounds, discount and 6 assists. With 148 total points through Monday, sickness only Michael Jordan has ever scored more points in 4 games. After a prolific MVP season, Steph has somehow come back even better and more confident.  He’s clearly demonstrating that he’s the top shot-maker in the league and making noise that he’s the best player in the world.

So far this season, Curry has hit shots from literally everywhere, including 95% of free throws and 52% from 3.  As twitter was quick to point out on Monday, he could have gone 0-88 in his next game and still have a higher 3 point percentage than James Harden.   If you’re so inclined, there are a lot more crazy stats, shot charts, and videos you can watch here.

If not, this tweet pretty much sums it up:

The Warriors won 67 games last year before joining the elite ranks of the NBA as the 10th team to win the Championship in the last 35 years.  Could they challenge the 1995-96 Bulls team that won 72?  If Curry keeps playing like he drank Michael’s Secret Stuff, it’s likely, and it’s also fun to make ridiculous predictions in the beginning of November, and throw in Space Jam references.  Curry will probably come back to earth at some point but his earth is not the same as yours, James Harden’s or Derrick Rose’s (sorry).   For now, we can all just sit back and enjoy Steph Curry’s incredible, not human, and historic start to the season.

And if he wasn’t already SO likable, last weekend Curry took a break from being on another planet to take his 4 month old daughter Ryan to get iced up at Piercing Pagoda in the mall.

Stars, they’re just like us.
