Few will refute the notion that Stephen Curry is the best shooter in the history of the NBA. However, if you ask Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, there is another specific asset of his super star point player that sticks out.

According to Kerr, Curry’s vast and continuous improvements in terms of his upper body strength is something that has continued to impress Kerr to this day:

” He truly improved his ability to soak up contact my 2nd year here,” by means of Wes Golberg of the Bay Location News Group. “… Simply for many years has actually developed his body up. I think in this past offseason with a long layoff, he added some strength. It was visible to us.”

Being among the most dangerous sharpshooters in the game, it’s simple to ignore the Warriors star’s finishing abilities. He is also the owner of a few of the sickest manages in the NBA, so generally, he leaves protectors hapless. However, in circumstances wherein the former back-to-back MVP finishes at the rim, you have to say that his capability to take in contact– and score the basket– is indeed rather impressive.

After all, there is a reason that Steph does the muscle flex every now and then.

The Warriors are in action on Thursday as they take on the New York Knicks at the Chase Center. The Dubs, who had a slow start to their project, have recently acquired some momentum on their side. Curry and Co. come into Thursday’s matchup versus the Knicks with excellent back-to-back wins versus the defending champs, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the San Antonio Spurs.
