At 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, Stephen Curry isn't a big man in the NBA, a world of giants. But to call out Curry's athletic ability is a whole different story.
Before he's even played a game in the NBA, Suns rookie Josh Jackson has already done just that.
Appearing in a video for VICE Sports on Wednesday, Jackson, who is listed at 6-foot-7 and 207 pounds, was asked which NBA player his skillset is least comparable to. "Player that I compare least to, probably Steph Curry," Jackson said. "Just because, you know, he's known as a shooter. I'm not. He's small and unathletic."
After receiving scrutiny for his comments on the two-time NBA MVP, Jackson further explained what he meant by "unathletic."
Man y'all make a story out of anything 🤦🏾♂️😂 my definition of athletic is a guy who flies through the lane and plays above the rim 🤷🏾♂️
So this would explain those DeMar IG posts: “Sources close to DeRozan told ESPN that DeRozan met with Toronto brass in Las Vegas during summer league and was told he would not be traded.” https://t.co/Rrhf2UMDbk
