Andre Iguodala would bet a lot of money on Steph Curry doing one thing at some point

Andre Iguodala would bet a lot of money on Steph Curry doing one thing at some point

Steph Curry is one of the best basketball players in the world, but he's also a pretty good golfer.

He's played golf with former President Obama on several occassions and last year, Curry teed it up on the Web.com Tour's Ellie Mae Classic. The two-time NBA MVP didn't make the cut, but he shot a respectable 74 in each of the first two rounds.

So could Curry become a pro golfer after his NBA playing days are over?

"Steph will be on tour. He'll be on one of those tours. I would bet on that. If there is something I could bet a lot of money on responsibly, that's something I would bet on. I'm not a betting guy, actually, on anything, but I would bet on that," Warriors forward Andre Iguodala said Monday on the Sports Business Radio Podcast.

What about Iguodala himself?

"Yeah, I don't have a shot," Iguodala said with a laugh.

So, when Curry hangs up his sneakers, look for him on a golf course near you.

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph Curry lived up to his Splash Brother moniker on Sunday, and jumped into Lake Tahoe after losing a bet with his father, Dell Curry, at the American Century Championship.

The Splash Father bet the Splash Son he would trail by fewer than 20 points at the end of the tournament. The elder Curry had room to spare on Sunday, too, and was just 18 back of his son. 

The two-time MVP was a man of his word. 

 

Last year, the Currys made the same bet, and it was Dell Curry who had to purify himself in the waters of Lake Tahoe. He tied for 30th at the event this year, while Curry tied for 11th.

Move over, China Klay. Tahoe Steph is making a "triumphant" return of his own. 

Last summer, Warriors guard Steph Curry unsuccessfully tried dunking on a hoop on the course at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe. 

#TahoeSteph? 🤔🙃

On Friday, the hoop made it 2-0. 

Would Golden State remain resounding favorites to three-peat as NBA champions if the team had to play every game in golf attire? Maybe that's how commissioner Adam Silver can achieve "parity of opportunity."
