Stephen Curry has become one of the best guards in the world. Be it his incredible dribbling ability or his impeccable shooting, the Warriors’ talisman is at the peak of his power. Given his incredible talents, Curry has been selected in many All-Star games.

But the 33-year has had his fair share of moments he would like to erase from the tape. One of the most humiliating moments was in the All-Star game back in 2017, when ‘Greek Freak’ Giannis Antetokounmpo posterized him twice.

Stephen Curry gets his revenge against Giannis thanks to NBA 2K glitch

Curry might be one of the best shooters in the game, but certainly isn’t known for his defensive prowess. But in a game like NBA 2K anything is possible. While 2K does provide an accurate representation of the game, the  game has had its flaws.

Be it the number of glitches or the number of bugs it has had, 2K has had his critiques. While Curry might not be a shot blocking machine in real life, it seems like the game certainly disagrees.

In one such instance in 2K, the ‘Baby faced Assassin‘ got his revenge on Giannis. With the ‘Greek Freak’ going up for an alley-oop dunk, Curry took an impossible leap and blocked the shot.

Steph was certainly impressed with the feat. Commenting on the post, the 2-time MVP commented, Finally got my revenge from the all star game!!!!” This is one of the countless number of bugs and glitches the game has had for quite some time.

Be it the sluggish passing or the mind bending plays, 2K is far from being a perfect game. But it’s accuracy in the presentation of the game and the impeccable graphics has made it a favorite among fans and players alike.

Will we see the Warriors’ talisman ever stop the Greek Freak similarly in a real life game. Let us know in the comments down below.
