Is Steph Curry Making Other NBA Players Worse?

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Steph Curry is a bloodless assassin who could shoot your eyelashes off from a mile away and is destroying the rest of the NBA by nailing shots from near-mid-court on a regular basis. He’s a fucking freak of nature, but is his uncanny long-range ability rubbing off on lesser NBA players (****cough cough JR Smith****) and inspiring them to heave up idiotic shots they have no prayer of making? That sounds like the perfect uninformed Deadcast argument!

Oh, but we have so many more delightful hypotheticals to explore in this week’s audio Funbag. One reader got a professional nude shot sent to his phone and is baffled as to how to respond. Another would like to know how many runs his team needs to be up before he can leave a baseball game. Real important shit. So join us for a listen. If you have any tips you’d like to submit to the podcast, just send it in to with the subject line DEADCAST. You can listen to the show here or download it over at the iTunes store.
