Maybe it wasn’t the move that put Stephen Curry on the map, but you’d be hard-pressed to find any basketball fan who hasn’t seen it. Curry, seemingly dribbling to nowhere in a bid to recycle the ball, is hounded by Chris Paul… and now Paul is on the floor, the crowd is filled with hands-on-head fans, and Curry rises up for a mid-range jumper which he nails to the elation of an already elated Warriors bench.
As the commentator described it at the time, “Curry, end-line, shakes Paul out of his boots and hits a fallaway jumpshot.”
On Monday, Paul and Curry joined each other on Instagram live, where Paul promptly brought up the shot, pointing to the fact that the five-year anniversary had just passed on March 31. Curry, momentarily confused, busted out in laughter when he realized what Paul was referring to.
“Listen, he got me,” Paul said. “He got me.”
“You got me.” CP3 giving Steph his props for dropping him in 2015. 🤣 pic.twitter.com/paRzhxPh5S
