The internet was buzzing over Stephen Curry's broken hotel room glass table on Thursday, and now he's opened up a little more about the incident to NBC Sports reporter Kerith Burke.
Curry tweeted that he broke the table while practicing his golf swing, and he told Burke that he accidentally dropped a 7-iron on the table when his phone alarm startled him. He added that he was lucky he wasn't cut considering he was barefoot at the time.
Curry's wife confirmed in the comments section that "he's always playing invisible golf.
I asked Steph for more details about this picture. He said he practices his golf swing all the time. He was using a 7 iron in his hotel room and his phone alarm went off, startling him. The 7 iron dropped from his hands on to a glass top table. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/LvgWTDXH7m— Kerith Burke (@KerithBurke) March 2, 2018
Steph said he was barefoot when the glass shattered. He's fine, no cuts, but he tried to clean it up and realized it was too big for him to do alone. He alerted the staff for help. Here's his caption for the pic. (2/2) pic.twitter.com/55l4OFE6zD— Kerith Burke (@KerithBurke) March 2, 2018
As for why exactly he was traveling with his golf clubs and trying to get his swing just right on a team road trip? Well we're just guessing, but it could have something to do with his tee time at Augusta National on Saturday.
Per ESPN: Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to play Augusta National today. So, his tee time is better than yours.— Rex Hoggard (@RexHoggardGC) March 3, 2018
Original story, March 1:
When it comes to swinging clubs inside, Kevin Costner in Tin Cup Steph Curry is not.
Now don't get us wrong. Curry is quite the stick. The Golden State Warriors guard and NBA MVP posted 74-74 at the Web.com Tour's Ellie Mae Classic last summer. So talent isn't the issue.
No, it's his passion for the game that's now an issue for one (Atlanta or Washington D.C.) hotel.
The Warriors have an off day on Thursday after topping the Wizards on Wednesday night, and they'll return to action Friday against the Hawks, leaving Steph the rest of the day to get this sorted out.
Hopefully, this somehow involved Draymond.
