Steph Curry takes jab at Michael Jordan over Hall of Fame comment

Steph Curry takes jab at Michael Jordan over Hall of Fame comment

Steph Curry's got jokes.

The Warriors superstar recently was a guest on an episode of Sole Collector's digital show "Full Size Run" with Matthew Welty, and the two had the following exchange:

Welty: "Do you ever send shoes to any of your haters? Sign 'em and say, 'Here you go.'"

Curry: "Not yet. I might to have set up a little service like that though. Might have to send 'em to MJ (laughs)."

Zing!

Curry, of course, is referring to Michael Jordan, who last month said the two-time NBA MVP is a great player but, "not a Hall of Famer yet."

For days thereafter, people all across the basketball world offered their opinions on why the six-time NBA champion made that proclamation.

Magic Johnson provided the best explanation:

This story probably will end here with Curry's joke, but you never know.

Warriors star Steph Curry reveals his favorite Kobe Bryant memory

Warriors star Steph Curry reveals his favorite Kobe Bryant memory

What is Steph Curry's favorite memory of Kobe Bryant?

Glad you asked.

It happened during Curry's rookie season in the NBA, as the two-time NBA MVP explained to Ben Golliver of The Washington Post:

As Curry remembers it, the Lakers were closing out a win over the Warriors in Oakland when he hit a “shoulder shimmy off-the-glass” shot.

“They panned to [Bryant] on the bench watching,” Curry recalled in a phone interview Tuesday. “He mouthed to whoever was sitting next to him, ‘Yo, he’s nice.’ I saw that clip afterward and I cracked a big smile knowing Kobe was impressed with what I was doing on the court as a rookie.

That moment was invaluable in building my confidence. He was always great at validating the next generation of talent. Once he took an interest in you, you had to know you were doing something right.”

That's pretty damn awesome.

On March 15, 2010, Curry racked up 29 points and nine assists (with zero turnovers) against the Lakers at Oracle Arena, so perhaps this was the night.

Why Steve Kerr isn't entertaining idea of Klay Thompson playing this year

Why Steve Kerr isn't entertaining idea of Klay Thompson playing this year

The Warriors were supposed to provide an official update on Klay Thompson's status during the All-Star break.

But it appears an announcement won't come until later this week.

Is coach Steve Kerr still operating with the mindset that Klay will not return to game action this season?

"It's so different because with Steph there's a definite timetable," Kerr told reporters Tuesday night after practice. "It's easy to look and say, 'In a couple weeks, Steph is gonna be ready to play.'

"Klay is a long way from that, so I don't even entertain any thoughts of Klay playing this year."

Yours truly feels the same way.

Klay tore his left ACL on June 13 and underwent surgery July 2.

The Warriors' last game is April 15 -- which is just 10 months removed from when he sustained the injury. Considering the team's current place in the standings, does it make sense to bring him back? We shall see.

It sounds like the final decision could be up to the three-time NBA champion himself.

“Klay might come back for a few games at the end. He might not,” owner Joe Lacob recently told Mark Medina of USA Today Sports. “That doesn’t matter so much. Maybe we’ll err on the cautious side. Maybe.

"That’s up to him.”
