Steph Curry Talks About How The New Rules Haven’t Affected His Game
He was asked about his secret to which he replied that it was quite simple. His set of skills did not require him trying to force any fouls.
He added that it was a “1,000 percent” easier for him as the rules were getting rid of the impulse to draw a foul. Steph has several tools in his game plan and feels that it has been easier for him.
The only tough situation for him is when he gets a pump fake and does not know if the opposition player is jumping onto him. He said that one needs to be patient and wait for the contact to come. If it comes to the sides then all he has to do is to get out of the way to draw that foul, especially inside the perimeter.
