Steph Curry To Teach Online Classes
According to ESPN.com's Chris Haynes, Golden State Warriors star player Steph Curry will be teaching online basketball classes. The classes will be taught through MasterClass and will be of Steph Curry breaking down video.
When Curry was asked about the online classes he stated:
"If I think about where I was when I was 13, if I had access to this type of curriculum, I would have been a much better player faster. It took me a while to learn how to practice and do the drills the right way. I want people to see how I invest in my game, how I train, what I do in my workouts and what's my mental approach. So, when the opportunity with Masterclass came about to put a class together where I can show people my unique way of playing this game, it was a natural fit. The goal is for everybody to get better and enjoy basketball more. I want them to push and challenge themselves and hopefully, they see the game differently."
Curry is not only changing the game on the court but he is changing the lives of many young athletes who look up to him. Curry has two NBA MVP awards and now has his goals set on a Most Valuable Professor award.
Joel Embiid Makes Dirty Joke
Embiid's game on Wednesday was so historical that no player in NBA history has ever accomplished it. He finished the game with 46 points, seven assists, seven blocks, and 15 rebounds. No player in NBA history has ever had at least 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists, and seven blocks in a single game.
Of course, Embiid - who has developed quite the reputation due to his jovial and jokester personality - couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a joke following the win over the Los Angeles Lakers:
Embiid is breaking records and cracking jokes with a straight face which makes me want to "Trust The Process" even more.
Zach LaVine Injury Update
LaVine is a player who relies on his athleticism and amazing explosion off the court, making a name for himself with the Minnesota Timberwolves as a dynamic offensive player who won two slam dunk contests. The Chicago Bulls acquired him in the Jimmy Butler deal in hopes of him becoming a go-to offensive threat, but LaVine has yet to make his Bulls debut due to a torn ACL he suffered last February.
Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg issued an update on LaVine’s status on Thursday, saying he should be able to return to full practices soon.

It appears that LaVine is right on track, which is a good sign, and all reports are that he hasn't lost a step. However, there is still no timetable for when he might make his debut for the Bulls.Back to the NBA Newsfeed
