Steph Infection

The other night during a Warrior game, one of their players had a wide open lay-up. Instead of shooting, he passed the ball to a teammate who was standing just beyond the three point line from where he took (and made) the shot. For any other team playing in any other era, this move is pure basketball sacrilege. But the way the Warriors play is heavily impacted by two factors. Steph Curry. And analytics. Why the NBA Loves — and Fears—Stephen Curry.
