Steph Curry agrees.
“It was hard to watch, but I did it,” Curry told Jeff Neubarth in a recent episode of the “Callaway Golf Podcast”.
When asked why he watched the final, Curry had a few justifiable reasons.
“It’s a bit of everything,” Curry said. “It’s me who is missing the game and I’m just a fan of the game and just want to watch some good basketball. It’s a bit of scouting, in terms of what we need to do next year to become one of those two teams again. It’s a bit of nostalgia too, we’ve been there five years in a row and I know the scenery in Orlando was different, but it’s still the NBA Finals.
“And any basketball fan, whether you’re a player or a fan, listening to that it’s great basketball and it gets you going. ”
