NBA fans are still trying to come to grips with a harsh reality just days after the playoffs came to an end. And no, it has nothing to do with the Golden State Warriors winning their third title in four years. On Sunday night, as you aimlessly scrolled around for something to watch, it hit you—you won’t be able to see any NBA action for the next few months.
As NBA fans try to cope, and look for ways to fill that hole in their heart, one Reddit user, as pointed out by FTW, spent these newfound hours of freedom concocting a ridiculous strategy to get Steph Curry "open" on every single one of his shots. "Serious question: why can’t 4 Warriors starters lock arms and form a ring around Steph Curry, so he can take open shots?," Danmaker99 suggests.
"Steph Curry barely needs much daylight to shoot, so as long as they leave around a foot of room around him, he can probably just bomb away freely every possession," Danmaker99 argues. "Why don’t the Warriors do this? Is Steve Kerr an idiot?" Over the last few years, the Warriors have been at the forefront of perfecting movements, such as the small ball lineup, that the rest of the league has tried to emulate. This set sounds ridiculous, and they'd have to watch out for getting called on an illegal screen, but it might be crazy enough to try just once.
Please make this happen next season, Kerr.
