When Curry asked Charles Barkley Tuesday if he was spending more time on the golf course or driving range, he said, “I’ve been out two Fridays already. So about 50-50 right now.” Getting little family time but I am definitely preparing.
“The only good thing about not playing as much basketball is that I have to prepare a little more because the last time you and Phil Mickelson troubled me in the first game we played in Arizona. Me and Kel would be a little more ready for this. It’s about to be fun in Vegas with Travis and Patrick Mahomes. So I’m definitely looking forward to it.”
Very few things can keep Curry off the basketball court for long, but preparing to face the defending Super Bowl champion is one of those things.
The event, which is continuing for the eighth time, has previously featured star athletes such as Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Josh Allen. This would be the first time NFL teammates would face NBA teammates.
