Stephen Curry Mulling Over 3-Point Shootout Invite
MILWAUKEE – Stephen Curry has been extended an invitation from the NBA to participate in the three-point shootout during next month’s All-Star weekend, but he’s debating whether to head to Houston for just one event.
“It would be a big commitment heading down there for one event so I’m figuring out if I’m going to make that commitment,” Curry told RealGM on Saturday night.
Curry is adamant he has moved past his All-Star snub after the coaches failed to select him as a reserve on Thursday. If an injury replacement is needed on the Western Conference team, Curry will almost assuredly be a top option for commissioner David Stern.
Curry, who was in the 2010 three-point contest, is having a career season, averaging 21 points and 6.5 assists while leading the Golden State Warriors to a 26-17 record.
