Critics say that professional athletes only care about themselves. During a timeout in Saturday’s 112-95 against the Nets, Steph Curry showed he hasn’t forgotten about the little people.
Steph played hooky from the Warriors huddle to lend a hand to a woman playing in a fan contest where she had to mini basketballs off a ramp into trash cans for money.
Curry stepped in to intercept the “money ball” and tossed it in the $2,500 bucket. Because it was the gold ball, the amount was doubled, so the lucky lucky fan walked away with $5K.
The Warriors gave Curry’s cheating their blessing and awarded the woman the full prize. Good call.
