Barack Obama: No one can outshoot Stephen Curry
President Barack Obama is a busy man, but on Thursday he set aside some time to answer questions via his new Twitter account. The president responded to inquiries about climate change, student loans, and even managed to get some sports in there, specifically basketball.
As a noted Bulls fan, there was little surprise Obama had something to say about the team’s decision to fire Tom Thibodeau. Also, coming across the president’s timeline was his thoughts on JR Smith and whether he can outshoot Stephen Curry to lead the Cavaliers to an NBA title.
.@NathenVieira jr smith having a great season but the heart of the Cavs is Lebron. And no one can outshoot Curry – maybe Korver if wide open

Korver and Curry bombing away from deep in the NBA Finals would have been fun to watch. However, the Cavaliers had other ideas. And, even if the Hawks did make it, Korver wouldn’t have been able to participate due to an injury suffered when Matthew Dellavedova dove for a lose ball and rolled into his ankle.
You’ll likely find more than a few people who will say Stephen Curry is the best shooter they’ve ever seen. On the other hand, if you’re going to provide a worthy challenger, the guy who holds the NBA record for consecutive games with a made three-pointer isn’t a bad choice.
