When Curry joined the latest episode of the Dubs Talk podcast, I asked him point-blank to paint a clear picture of how he participates in his head coach’s strategizing.

Here is the transcript from that segment, edited lightly for clarity:

Grant Liffmann: There are some fans, there are some media, that can be pretty critical of the way the Steve Kerr offense runs and how it handles you, like on-ball, off-ball, high ball screens, pick-and-rolls, how your minutes are distributed, all these things are in hot debate at some point every single year. To be clear, how much are you involved and how would you characterize your involvement in the strategy and decisions that are made in this realm?

Steph Curry: It surprises me, I guess every year, that there is not an inherent understanding that I don’t just show up into the locker room.

Head up going to the bench, go through all these practices, and me and Coach [Kerr] don’t have these type of conversations in terms of my rotations, or play calls, or whatever the case may be.

Yes, I might not get the answer that I want in terms of … you know, I’d love to play 42 minutes a night. I feel like I can do it.

And certain games where you can push it a little bit, and you all can see my face or my reaction, body language, whatever, and then the questions come after the game.

‘Did you want to come out in the middle of the fourth quarter?’ And it’s like, of course, I didn’t, but [Kerr’s] making decisions for the good of the big picture, that is what his job is to manage.

So for like all that stuff, of course we have conversations about our rotation.

Right now my rotation is exactly how it should be, in terms of managing the season, giving our rotations the best chance to not have any lulls throughout the game.

Implement Klay [Thompson] back into the lineup when he is on a minutes restriction, and also fully understanding that it could change come post-All-Star, playoff run.

That is an ongoing assessment of how we are looking and how I’m feeling and all of that.

The on-ball, off-ball stuff is less of an issue because at any point, and Coach probably knows this. At any point, I could say, ‘I’m just going to run high pick-and-rolls for ten straight possessions.’

But also, you have to understand, what is the best chance for us to win the game?

Depending on how the teams are guarding, depending on what their strategy is, whether or not they want to blitz the pick-and-roll, who else is out there on the floor, do I have it rolling, or do I not.

Sometimes, granted, I will say that sometimes you can over-complicate things a little bit in terms of — and me and Coach have talked about this — he will be the first one to tell you that sometimes he wants to use me as a decoy, and executing that offense especially in late-game situations sometimes becomes a little more difficult.

And we go through those reps throughout the season so that when we get to the playoffs, we have a refined understanding of how we are going to win games, in all different types of scenarios and situations.

But my skill set obviously, in how I approach the game, I have the ability to do both [on-ball and off-ball]. And we are going to continue to try to do both, as long as it continues to work.

And throughout the course of 82 games, you are going to get a little bit of everything.

I will say that I appreciate the passion of all our fans to know the ebbs and flows of the season.

And everyone wants to play coach, that is how it is supposed to be. But as long as we are winning, we will be able to figure it out.

GL: It would be bad if people didn’t care, so that is how you have to look at it, as glass half full. 

SC: That is how I wanted to finish that, because that passion, keep it coming. You are right, if there is ever a situation if nobody is asking that question, then I probably would get concerned like, ‘Are we not relevant anymore?’

These Kings have fangs. In other campaigns, they have had good players, but the mentality they are showing in this campaign has not been known to them for a long time. Last night, receiving a Grizzlies without Ja Morant, they took advantage of that absence to muscle up and win with the emphatic that reflects the final score: 133-100.

The Californians dominated the game almost at all times, but it wasn’t until the last quarter that they dealt a final blow that is measured by a 33-10 run. They swept Memphis for 12 minutes in which the Tennessees had no response to what was coming their way.

“It was a great victory for the whole team. I think in the second half we were really good defensively,” says Mike Brown, the coach who is getting closer to returning Sacramento to the playoffs after 16 years of absence.

To achieve the aforementioned milestone, Brown has a large group of players of a very good level. Against Memphis, Domantas Sabonis had a triple-double of 14 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds, Trey Lyles had 24 points off the bench, rookie Keegan Murray went to 20 points, and Harrison Barnes had another 20 (15 of them in the first quarter).

Although the Kings did not leave the game sentenced until the last quarter, it was in the first that they left some mark on history. With 12 triples, they matched the most that had been achieved to date in such a space of time. Such offensive capacity led them to 47 points. The reality is that everything seems to be going well for those from the California capital, who have won seven of their last eight games to settle in third place in the Western Conference.

Memphis: three straight losses

It was clear that the time would come when the Grizzlies would have to slow down a bit. More than accommodated in the second position of the West, it is time to regulate efforts and take care of its essential pieces; and of course, there is none like Ja Morant. The point guard was absent last night and his team noticed it despite Jaren Jackson Jr.’s 19 goals and Desmond Bane’s 21. In any case, the team’s head coach, Taylor Jenkins, understands that it’s just a defeat and that they must keep gritting their teeth always thinking about the next game.

“We have to focus on getting better and doing better against Golden State. You just have to continue playing hard and be together while we find our rhythm, “he says.

LeBron James made a female fan go viral after the two involve in exchange glances and smiles during an LA Lakers home game against the Rockets.

As one of the nerve centers of Los Angeles entertainment, the Crypto.com Arena is no stranger to fans trying to get the attention of the stars. The most famous case in recent years was that of Rihanna and Laker Alex Caruso.

That video also went viral in NBA circles and on social media. But it is not every day that LeBron James stars in one of these episodes.

During the last game that the Los Angeles Lakers played at home, a fan in a courtside seat fixed her gaze for several seconds on the four-time MVP. LeBron seems to ignore her until, noticing her presence, he crosses glances with her.

This prompted nervous laughter from King James and silent rejoicing from the fan, who continued to smile at him.

Whether or not James and the blonde fan exchanged glances or this was a coincidence remains to be seen, but social media users have been having fun with it anyway.

Perhaps Savannah James, LeBron’s wife of ten years and high-school sweetheart, isn’t smiling so much.
