Steph Curry explains why he decided to turn down role in 'Space Jame 2'

Steph Curry explains why he decided to turn down role in 'Space Jame 2'

For the first time since 2011, Steph Curry won't be joining Klay Thompson on the hardwood. Instead, Thompson will be sharing a court with a different king -- LeBron James.

Don't worry, Klay hasn't made his free-agency decision yet.

The Warriors star reportedly has accepted a role alongside the Lakers star in the upcoming film "Space Jam 2," along with Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard and Diana Taurasi.

A number of NBA stars, including Curry, reportedly turned down the opportunity to be in the film. The Warriors star admits he and producer Ryan Coogler discussed it, but they ultimately couldn't make it work.

“I know LeBron and Ryan Coogler are going to be doing amazing things. It's going to be awesome,” Curry told The New York Times' Sopan Deb. “Part of it was in terms of things that I had going on. It was just the timing, to be honest. Not being able to commit. And I know Ryan really well. We had a lot of conversations about it.”

Coogler, an Oakland native, is a huge Warriors fan, making it difficult for Steph to say no to the project.

“He's at every playoff game,” Curry said, adding, “Obviously, that's hard to turn down. The guy does amazing work.”

Steph won't have to watch out for the Monstars this summer, which is good news for the banged-up Warriors, who can ill-afford to have another star to go down with an injury -- real or imagined.

Steph Curry and daughters Riley, Ryan drive around singing 'Hamilton'

I know what you're thinking ... Is there anything Steph Curry can't do?

At this point, if there is a list of those things, it has to be relatively short, right? Perhaps non-existent. Today, I found out the guy knows the lyrics from the musical "Hamilton."

Of course he does.

And so do his daughters, Riley and Ryan:

The members of the Curry family drove around singing "You'll Be Back," and finished it off with some surprise ice cream.

And yes, I couldn't believe how fast little Riley is growing up either. She's come a long way since stealing the show during press conferences.

Steph said on his YouTube page they sing this song quite a bit, but it's the first time they've captured it on camera. 

Naturals.
