Stephen Curry shines in Golden State charity game

Throughout this NBA lockout there have been plenty of charity games featuring the biggest names of the league right now. I have covered most of them on this blog site. This time I feel that I should cover a smaller charity game out in San Francisco called the “We Believe” charity game. The superstar that shined brighter than all others was Golden State Warriors point guard¬†Stephen Curry.

Curry posted a triple-double (34 points, 13 assists, 12 rebounds) in his victory in San Jose State arena. Curry is well known for having a smooth stroke from the three-point line during his college years at Davidson College. Since then, he has built a great skill set beyond his shooting and exhibited it in the game.

See for yourself:

How do you feel the newer talent of the NBA fairs against the bigger names of the League right now?

The love of the game remains strong

The three top NBA stars of the Jordan brand came together to show their love of the game. The lockout has brought out so much concern and sadness for basketball fans. The players have been showing their skills in games, but in the Jordan brand “Love of the Game” commercial Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony showed that it doesn’t matter whether its professional or amateur, it’s all about the love of the game. I couldn’t agree more. Every NBA player should be able to play the game for his love of it and not just for a paycheck.

If you haven’t seen the commercial here it is:

Similar to the Jordan brand, Nike basketball has started a campaign called “Basketball Never Stops” behind their NBA athletes LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki¬†and Kevin Durant. They show the same love of the game and show why the game can never die out.

Here’s Nike’s version of their love of basketball:

Do you think this commercial captured the true love that players should have for the sport? Why?
