John Wall Told Stephen Curry To Stop Flopping, Then Curry Dropped Wall With A Quick Pick Up And Shot: “I Thought You Said Don’t Flop.”

Stephen Curry is one of the most unguardable players in the entire league. Curry is extremely elusive and has insane skill which allows him to evade players who are trying to defend against him.

On top of that, Curry is by far, the greatest shooter in NBA history, so anyone trying to prevent him from making a shot is bound to struggle. So one can imagine how difficult a motivated and annoyed Stephen Curry would be to stop.

Former NBA All-Star John Wall had to learn this lesson the hard way. Wall, who was with the Washington Wizards at the time, was trying to take the ball to the basket but was being guarded by Stephen Curry.

Wall used his body to bump into Curry before shimmying away to the basket, but he was called for an offensive foul. John Wall was furious as he ran back up the court, screaming at Stephen Curry to stop flopping.

In response, Stephen Curry brought the ball down the court a few possessions later by rolling it down. Curry rolled it far enough to tempt John Wall into going for the Hail Mary steal.

But Curry was lightning quick as he picked up the ball and got past Wall to quickly sink the three-pointer as he has so effortlessly done his entire career. It was a teachable moment for Wall and other guards in the NBA: Never infuriate the babyfaced assassin.

Curry has made a career out of making the extraordinary look routine. His talent is considered generational, and he has been able to build a career that few players in the NBA can claim.

Curry will continue being one of the best players in the world for the foreseeable future, as he has shown that he is only getting better as time goes on. Many fans have wondered just how good Curry’s resume will be once he walks away from the game.
