Stephen Curry loses to Luke Walton in three-point shooting contest

Stephen Curry has the best stroke in the NBA right now, and when he shoots, he doesn’t miss often. He’s so good that he’s been known to celebrate his shots before they even go in.

Here’s something that may shock you about him, though: He recently lost a shooting contest to his head coach, Luke Walton.

KNBR shared a video which showed Walton and Curry squaring off, so in case you didn’t believe it, here’s proof that it happened:

Walton certainly wasn’t known for being a good shooter when he was in the league, and only hit 32 percent of the three-pointers he attempted. We’re going to just go ahead and say that Curry let him win. Maybe he was looking to get more playing time in the fourth quarter of games (rather than resting)?
