This may not come as a surprise to you, but Steph Curry really enjoys playing basketball.
The three-time NBA champion – who was limited to just five games during the 2019-20 NBA season due to a broken left arm – is missing to compete against the best players in the world.
So when the seed games in the Orlando bubble started on July 30, Steph got into a bit of a conflict.
“Obviously I was happy to see basketball back on TV, but that first week I had a big FOMO (fear I would miss it),” he told the New York Times’ Marc Stein on Sunday night. “Once you see Bron (LeBron James) and Kawhi (Leonard) and PG (Paul George) go into it, and you remember how much fun it is to play in those kinds of games and at that kind of level, you miss it badly.”;
Unfortunately for the NBA MVP twice, it is unclear exactly when he will get a chance to get back on trial with the current stakes online. With the coronavirus pandemic still going on, no one really knows when the 2020-21 campaign will start.

But whenever next season starts, he and his teammates will be ready to knock and roll.
“Our list type speaks for itself in terms of what I, Klay (Thompson) and Draymond (Green) have gone through, and what we have left in the reservoir,” Steph Stein told. “But we have to use it wisely this time.
“It’s just uncontrolled territory, whether you’re in the bubble or not.”

Regarding the above-mentioned FOMO, how is the 32-year-old dealing with it?
“Curry said he relies all the time on the bonus family he is taking with his wife, Ayesha, and their three children, business endeavors and then special occasions like going to the PGA on Sunday,” Stein wrote.

And when it comes to business endeavors, Steph will soon take his brand in Under Armor. So having some extra time on his hands to handle those details certainly can’t hurt.
