Steph jokes with Miller about confidence in 3-point contest

Steph celebrating

When Steph Curry is shooting, everyone else is playing for second place.

At least that's how it feels, and how it felt Sunday night during the 3-point contest at the NBA All-Star Game in Atlanta, Ga.

While Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley gave Curry a run for his money, the Warriors' star came out on top by hitting a money-ball shot on his final try. Curry won the final round 28-27.

Once the All-Star Game got going and Curry had been subbed out of the contest, he put on a headset to talk to the TNT broadcast, which included Hall of Famer Reggie Miller.

Miller, who was just passed on the NBA's all-time career 3-pointers list by Curry, asked the hard-hitting question.

"Steph. Seriously, I have to ask this question and I want you to be honest," Miller said. "Did you pull a Larry Bird before the 3-point contest and walk into the rest of the competition and say 'Which one of y'all is shooting for second?' Be truthful. Come on now."

"Hey Reg, sometimes you don't even have to say it," Curry said with a laugh. "You just walk in the locker room. You just got that look."

Obviously Curry was joking, but on Sunday, he reminded everyone that he is the greatest 3-point shooter of all time.

After passing Miller earlier this season for No. 2 on the all-time 3-point list, Curry is on pace to overtake Ray Allen for the top spot early in the 2021-22 NBA season.

The two-time 3-Point Contest winner will eventually set the bar for career 3-pointers somewhere around 4,000, and everyone chasing him will be shooting for second place.
