NBA star Steph Curry reveals how he’s getting through coronavirus lockdown – teaching his kids and watching old games

STEPH CURRY has revealed how he’s getting through the coronavirus lockdown in the US.

The NBA superstar may be arguably the greatest shooter in basketball history but he’s still having to stay behind closed doors, just like the rest of us.

The Golden State Warriors star has revealed that he’s filling all his time by watching video of old basketball games - as well as acting as a “teaching assistant” for his kids (pictured below).

Curry, 32, said: “[Isolation] makes you realise how much time there is in a day when the ball isn’t bouncing. I’m just trying to figure all this out daily.

"My day normally looks something like this: I wake up, I get a little work out in, then my daughter’s second grade class starts and I’m like a substitute teacher for a little bit.

" Once the class is over, I sit there and dish out the papers and all the material that she then has to do… I’m like a teacher assistant basically.”

And while Curry, who had just returned from injury when the season was suspended, is still getting shots up and working on his fitness, he revealed he’s spending the rest of the time doing homework of his own.

"Since we don’t have any live action, it’s actually been really dope going back and watching some of the old school classic games, even the Finals from the last decade or so,” he added.

"As a basketball fan, being able to sit there and watch greatness and relive all those moments like it’s actually live… my wife caught me plenty of times sitting there like I don’t know what the outcome is, but that’s what basketball does to us.”

It probably helped that Curry has been one of the best players of the last decade.

He was twice named the league's MVP and helped lead the Warriors to FIVE consecutive finals appearances - winning three championships.

And while Curry has no idea when basketball will be back, he had a simple message for frustrated fans.

“We will be back. We’re all in this together, these are unprecedented times for everybody. We will be back soon, hopefully sooner than later, back on the court doing what we love doing.”
