Steph Curry Credits His Shooting Improvement to Wearing Contacts

Steph Curry

In a developing story from the Athletic, Golden State Warriors star, Steph Curry details to Marcus Thompson II how his shooting slump during February to early March was attributed to being unable to see the basket clearly. Since Curry began wearing contacts, he claims his shooting has improved. According to a stat from Bleacher Report, Curry has hit at least five three-pointers in nine straight games while shooting 48.7 percent from long range!

"I started wearing contacts," Curry told Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic. "No, I'm serious."
"I had gotten so used to squinting for so long," he added. "It was just normal."

11:30am PST UPDATE: Apparently, Steph Curry's vision was pretty bad, according to the same report from Bleacher Report. Marcus Thompson shared the following:

"He said he has a condition called Keratoconus, known in the ophthalmology field as KC. Technically, it's an eye disease in which the cornea, normally a circle, progressively thins and takes on a cone shape. This distortion has given Curry what is known as an astigmatism, which is a type of error in the way the light bends when entering the eye. It doesn't distribute the light equally to the retina and leads to blurred or distorted vision."

Take into perspective that Steph Curry could be the greatest shooter in the world and only recently fixed his vision. The NBA now has a lot more to fear from the Warriors aside from a ridiculously stacked team.
