What is Steph Curry plotting?
That's the question on everyone's mind after the injured Golden State Warriors superstar was spotted having a conversation with reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo after his Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Warriors 107-98 in San Francisco on Wednesday.
Though the exchange was quick, the two MVPs appeared to share a pleasant moment. Curry dapped him up and said something in his ear. We're not professional lip readers, but in another video, it looks almost as if Curry is saying "Let's do it. Come on, man."
While it's not *entirely* clear what he said, fans quickly assumed Steph was talking about the Greek Freak's looming free agency options. The Bucks can offer him a five-year supermax extension next summer and if he declines it, you'll be looking at one of the most dominant players in the world as an unrestricted free agent in July 2021.
It's no secret that Steph is a huge fan of Giannis. After the Bucks defeated the Warriors, Giannis received an autographed Steph Curry jersey. It's probably more likely that Steph was referring to the jersey when talking to Giannis, but who knows.
Giannis is hoping for Steph's speedy recovery, as he recovers from a hand injury.
"Once they [the Warriors] come back, they'll be right up there. The up and down is going to be crazy," the Greek Freak told reporters after the game. "I talked to Steph and wished him a fast recovery. He's going to be back, he's going to be helping his team win and doing what he did the previous years."
Meanwhile, Steph seemed to have caught wind of all the noise, and may or may not have addressed it in the below tweet.
He also attempted to clarify what he said with Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. After Haynes reached out to Curry via text, Curry explained that he was simply giving Giannis his gamertag for an online game called PlayerUnknown's Battleground, so that he and Giannis could play together. "We could team up and do some damage," Steph said, according to the man himself. "Let's do it, c'mon."
