Warriors

Editor's note: Stephen Curry's unprecedented NBA career has entered its 10th season, so we visited with the Warriors star to detail his top 10 moments, and he obliged. 

Stephen Curry averaged 30.3 points through his first 43 games of the 2015-16 season. In Games 44, 45 and 46, however, he scored just 14, 23 and 13 points, respectively.

So, when the Warriors took the floor Feb. 3, 2016, in Washington DC, he was due for a big game. And he had one.

Curry scored 25 points in the first quarter en route to 51 total in the Warriors' 134-121 win.

Has Curry ever started a game that hot?

"Not that I can remember," the Warriors star told NBC Sports Bay Area as he recounted his top 10 moments of his 10-year NBA career.

The next day, Curry and the Warriors visited the White House, where President Barack Obama went out of his way to poke fun at the two-time NBA MVP.

"Steph's a pretty good shooter," Obama said to a gathered audience. "For those of you who watched the game against the Wizards last night, he was, to use slang, he was 'clowning.'

"He's all jumping up and down (shaking his head)," said Obama, who then turned to look at Curry and jokingly added, "Just settle down."

The 44th President of the United States also took a jab at Curry's golf game and said Klay Thompson has a prettier jump shot.
