Stephen Curry has one of the most unorthodox ways of warming up before the game. Players usually shoot around to get ready for the match, but not Stephen Curry. He is often seen working on his circus shots or something or the other. This is just his way of loosening up before dropping 30 or 40 points in the game.

And the warmup before the Clippers matchup was nothing different. The Golden State Warriors managed to take down the Los Angeles Clippers in their last matchup, 124-107. Curry sure was working on his skills before the game.

The Chef had soccer on his mind

But it wasn’t his basketball skills that he was polishing. Instead, Curry was showing off his soccer skills before the game. In his Instagram story, Curry posted a video of him handling the basketball as a soccer player would.

In the video, he was seen kicking the ball back to a Warriors trainer and receiving the ball with a header. The ball went off the court as a bystander passed the ball back to Curry and he shot a one-legged three-pointer to cap off his warmup.
