Stephen Curry has an unparalleled mastery over the game of basketball. However, when it comes to golf, he was considered an amateur till recently. That all changed after his performance in this year’s ACC tournament. To hit a hole-in-one with 12,500:1 odds should either be a fluke or a thing of ultimate mastery. With Steph, nothing is a fluke, so he must have mastered it.

Be it Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant, they are known to be quite obsessive in their pursuits. Stephen Curry is cut from the same cloth as well. In one of Andre Iguodala‘s old interviews, he was asked why Steph was so good at everything. To this, Iggy praised Steph by calling him weird in a good way and went on to compare him with a movie character. He compared Steph with the lead character of the movie ‘The Accountant’. That character was a symbol of meticulousness.

If that was about Steph, the same applies to Dwyane Wade as well. For anyone who has seen the young D Wade win his first NBA championship, you would know that he was different. Legends like Shaq and Gary Payton gave him his space to lead them from the front.
