Stephen Curry got his vision fixed with corrective contact lenses this season, and whether or not you think it’s a small deal, a big deal, or a way for him to try and get in the heads of the rest of the league, Curry with improved eyes is leading to the scary prospect that his shooting will now somehow get better than it already has been.
And if this clip is any indication, his passing is getting better, too.
The pass came in the Warriors’ game against the Lakers on Thursday night, a matchup that ended with Golden State taking care of the LeBron-less Lakers easily, winning 108-90. That’s all well and good, but, uh, look at this freaking pass:
I know the Lakers’ Alex Caruso had an amazing dunk in this game, but this pass … this is my play of the game. The vision, sure, but the strength to get that ball behind his back and down the court, the fact that it hit Durant in stride, I mean … come on.
Curry only finished with 7 points in the game, but he didn’t need any more than that with the Warriors cruising. And this pass was one of his 7 assists, and by far the best one.
