Golden State Warriors star believes he'd be in for a battle against the video game version of himself.
Steph Curry doesn’t get scared easily. At just 25, he’s already been an All-Star and has led the NBA in Free-Throw percentage and Three-Pointers. But that’s all in the real world. In video games, the notion of going one-on-one with his video game counterpart in “NBA 2K15” was enough to get him thinking.
“He’d probably have the advantage if you took the endurance triggers off because he could play for days,” Curry said of his in-game character at 2K’s “NBA 2K15” Uncensored event at Baruch College’s Engelman Auditorium Hall in New York City yesterday. “But I’m confident in my abilities. I have pretty high ratings. I’d have to bring my A-game though.”
Revealed as one of 2K15’s “Highlight athletes, Curry, who led the Golden State Warriors with 1,873 points last season, also discussed his career and his favorite music, citing Talib Kweli as an artist that gets him ready before a game.
Curry also discussed the game’s visuals during the discussion, saying they were “about the realest game” he’s ever seen.
The other “Highlight” athletes for “NBA 2K15” consist of fellow NBA All-Stars James Harden, Anthony Davis and “NBA 2K15” cover athlete Kevin Durant. The event was moderated by TNT’s “Inside the NBA” Ernie Johnson and saw the stars discuss everything from pop culture to their careers and the legacy of the basketball video game series.
