Malcolm Jenkins mistakenly called Steph Curry a ‘frontrunner’ at Super Bowl

Malcolm Jenkins was not happy when he saw NBA superstar Stephen Curry standing near the Patriots sideline wearing a red sweatshirt prior to Super Bowl LII, but the Eagles defensive back may owe curry an apology after he called the two-time MVP a “frontrunner.”

The “SoundFX” footage from the Super Bowl was released this week, and one entertaining exchange showed Jenkins telling a teammate he “knew I didn’t like Steph Curry.” At the time, Curry was standing with some Patriots fans.

As it turns out, Curry is not a frontrunner at all. While he grew up in Charlotte and is a diehard Panthers fan, he had actually gone on record as saying he was rooting for the underdog Eagles to beat the Patriots.

And after the Eagles pulled off the win, one of Curry’s longtime friends — a Pats fan — said he could’t wait to get away from Curry so he could stop listening to “fly Eagles fly!”

So why the red sweatshirt? That was just a coincidence, as Curry was not trying to wear Patriots red. If you look closely, you can see that his hoodie said “Minnehaha Academy” across the front, which is a school that has one of the top boys’ basketball programs in the state of Minnesota.

You can understand why it looked like Curry was rooting for New England, but Jenkins simply didn’t have all of the information. Fortunately, the misunderstanding didn’t lead to Curry finding his way onto Eagles offensive lineman Jason Kelce’s epic you-know-what list that he rattled off on Thursday.

Kyrie Irving hilariously leaves Steph Curry hanging during postgame embrace (Video)

Stephen Curry is usually the one doing his opponents dirty, but it was quite the opposite upon the end of Saturday’s game against the Boston Celtics.

After the Warriors’ 109-105 win over Boston, Curry met Celtics counterpart Kyrie Irving for a postgame embrace. While it was all love between the two superstar guards as they hugged it out, Curry was hilariously left hanging by Irving on a final dap attempt as they were about to go their separate ways.

Curry probably doesn’t feel too bad — he got the victory and finished with a whopping 49 points to win the duel against Irving, who scored 37 himself. But this is definitely the best viral moment involving the two since the offseason.

Steve Kerr cracks jokes about defending Stephen Curry

Steve Kerr

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr had to come up with another creative answer to a question he gets pretty much whenever his team faces the Chicago Bulls — which team would win a matchup against the Jordan-era icons?

Kerr was a member of those Bulls, and he’s dealt with these questions before — but he had a new set of lines Wednesday about defending Stephen Curry.

Remember, this debate became very common two seasons ago, when Golden State broke the 1995-96 Bulls’ regular season wins record. Kerr is probably sick to death of answering this question, so he may as well have some fun with it.

Bob Myers downplays concerns over Steph Curry’s ankle

The Golden State Warriors are not sounding the alarm over Stephen Curry’s ankle.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Curry’s ankle issue would not require an MRI and that the team isn’t hugely concerned about it, calling it “tweaked.”

There’s a bit of hedging toward the end, but if the Warriors felt this was a very serious issue, they’d be taking him in for every test imaginable. They’ll likely wait and see how it responds, hold him out of Wednesday night’s game, and hope for the best after that.

Report: Stephen Curry sprained ankle in practice, won’t play vs. Clippers

Stephen Curry can’t catch a break when it comes to injuries this season, and the Warriors star is set to miss at least one more game after he tweaked his ankle in practice on Wednesday.

Curry reportedly slipped during Golden State’s shootaround and had his ankle examined by trainers. Apparently he tweaked his previously-injured right ankle, as ESPN’s Chris Haynes reports that Curry was diagnosed with a sprain and will be held out of Wednesday night’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Curry played in just his fifth game back from an ankle injury on Monday. He suffered the original injury in a game against the New Orleans Pelicans last month, and you can see a video of the play here.

The Warriors are likely playing it safe with Curry, but it isn’t a good sign that his latest injury was serious enough to hold him out of yet another game.

Stephen Curry suffers possible ankle injury after slipping at shootaround

Stephen Curry’s ankles appear to be giving him some trouble yet again.

Mark Medina of The Mercury News reported on Wednesday that the Golden State Warriors superstar needed to have his ankle checked after slipping during shootaround. The severity of the injury was not immediately clear.

The Warriors will be playing the LA Clippers at home on Wednesday night.

Curry, who is averaging a team-high 27.9 points to go along with 6.4 assists per game this season, missed nearly a month of action in December after suffering a badly sprained right ankle against the New Orleans Pelicans on Dec. 4 (video here). Monday’s win over the Denver Nuggets marked just his fifth game back from injury, and with Curry’s well-known history of ankle woes, Warriors fans will surely holding their breath at this latest development.

Stephen Curry willing to ‘do what it takes’ to be part of Panthers ownership group

Stephen Curry

The Carolina Panthers officially went up for sale after their loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and NBA superstar Stephen Curry is serious about wanting to be a part of the team’s next ownership group.

Curry, who grew up in Charlotte and is a lifelong Panthers fan, told reporters on Monday that he is willing to “do what it takes” to own a piece of the franchise.

Curry said he has spoken with Diddy about the possibility of buying the team, and the Golden State Warriors star made it clear last month that he is serious. The Panthers are expected to sell for more than $2 billion, so Curry obviously would have to be part of a bigger group. He’s also not the only pro athlete who has expressed interest in buying the team.

A lot of very wealthy people will explore the possibility of buying the Panthers, and the league has to approve the next ownership group. It’s far too early to tell who will be considered a serious bidder.
