Steph Curry's hard work is no secret to coach Steve Kerr or anyone who has followed the Warriors during his 11 seasons in the Bay Area. You don't go from a prospect with little to no Division I attention to a two-time NBA MVP and three-time champion by just showing up.
So when Kerr was asked to speak to the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles during a virtual team meeting, he provided an anecdote on Curry's unquenchable work ethic.
"The best example I took from him was, after practice Steph Curry takes a hundred shots. After a full practice," Eagles safety Will Parks told ESPN's Tim McManus. "That's another thing, to be able to work hard after work and be able to dial in and dedicate even more time to your craft."
Kerr was a teammate of NBA legend Michael Jordan during his playing days with the Chicago Bulls, and recently compared MJ's drive to Curry's.
"Both players were and are just incredibly hard-working," Kerr said on a video call with the University of San Francisco. "So you know when your best player is also the guy who's there first, you know who stays the latest and is constantly working to get better. It kind of sets a tone for the whole organization and that's what Michael was. He worked so incredibly hard."
As the world got to see up close in ESPN's "The Last Dance," Jordan and Curry don't exactly approach communication with teammates, coaches and executives the same way.
But there's no debating that Curry has earned each and every accolade he has accrued in his decorated basketball career.
