“Did we just become best friends?”
Andre Iguodala and Steph Curry became inseparable almost instantly when Iggy joined the Warriors after the 2012-13 season. In addition to developing a strong chemistry on the court, the duo also shared a passion off the hardwood: golf.
Even after Iggy’s recent trade to Memphis, the two have obviously remained close friends and continue to hit the links together.
Curry made headlines in the golf world Monday when he announced he will be helping restart Howard University’s men’s and women’s golf programs for the next six years.

Hopefully, Curry can find some new teammates to hit the course with him after Iguodala’s departure and Klay Thompson’s ACL injury.
Talk about laying the wood.
49ers punter Mitch Wishnowsky sprinted down the field on a kickoff Monday night and delivered a blow to Broncos return man Devontae Jackson.
The rookie punter was impressive in his preseason debut last week, and will likely be the team’s regular-season punter after being selected in the fourth round of April’s draft.

The 49ers also tweeted after the hit about upgrading Wishnowsky's tackle rating in the Madden NFL 20 videogame.
36 tackle rating? Yeah, that's not going to last.
Antonio Brown isn’t the only NFL player in the Bay Area who had an issue with the league’s new rules regarding helmets.
49ers tackle Joe Staley made the switch to the new helmet before last season, and lamented the change prior to the team’s second preseason game Monday night in Denver.
“No, I made a big stink about it. I loved that helmet,” Staley told James Palmer of the NFL Network. “It suction-cupped to your head, it didn’t move at all."
“In my opinion, I understand why Antonio Brown is upset, because it’s not a vision thing. I’m not a wide receiver, but when you’re sprinting down the field, the helmet doesn’t move because it's stuck right against your head."
Staley spoke about making a change in 2012 due to the reported safety concerns but broke his nose after the new helmet slid down his face during his first game wearing it. Staley switched back after that game and now wears a custom helmet that was 3-D printed to fit Staley’s head.
Maybe AB can find the same people who made Staley’s custom helmet to help the Raiders’ wideout find some headwear that is up to his lofty standards.
