Warriors Stephen Curry to teach online basketball courses

Stephen Curry is one of the most popular players in the NBA and considered by many to be the greatest shooter to ever play the game.

And now, you’ll get to learn how to play basketball directly from the man himself.

The two-time MVP and two-time NBA champion is partnering with MasterClass to hold online courses where he will teach the fundamentals of what makes him one of the best basketball players in the world.

Back in the 1980’s players like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird created their own videos on teaching the fundamentals of basketball, but with the dawn of technology and the way people are consuming content, Steph felt this was a perfect way to interact with his fans and teach them the game of basketball.

“If I think about where I was when I was 13, if I had access to this type of curriculum, I would have been a much better player faster,”  Curry told ESPN. “It took me a while to learn how to practice and do the drills the right way. I want people to see how I invest in my game, how I train, what I do in my workouts and what’s my mental approach. So when the opportunity with MasterClass came about to put a class together where I can show people my unique way of playing this game, it was [a] natural fit. The goal is for everybody to get better and enjoy basketball more. I want them to push and challenge themselves, and hopefully they see the game differently.”

Curry, a believer in Christ, has always felt it important to give back and help others and make an impact on the next generation.

“I feel like people can learn from me and can be impacted by how I approach the game, and this is another way for that to spread to the next generation of basketball players. Everybody says ‘Like Mike,’ but you have to be able to see what that means.”
