Steph Curry believes that the NBA’s height listings are for the fans and have no bearing on the players.
Stephen “Steph” Curry says the NBA’s Height Listings have little impact on players and are intended for fans who care about such details.
NBA players have been the subject of several rumors about their ages and heights. The NBA made it essential for all teams to submit actual ages and heights for players on their rosters in order to put an end to these rumors.
Steph Curry on the NBA’s Height Regulations
Curry revealed his height to Anthony Slater of The Athletic in an interview. He is 6’2′′ and 3-quarters without shoes. He joked that he wouldn’t play basketball without his shoes on.
In October of this year, Slater took to Twitter to share the specifics with NBA fans, to whom these details are extremely important. At least, that’s how Curry sees it. Coaches and players are fine-tuning their techniques as the league adopts a harsher regulations.
Kevin Durant (a.k.a. KD) isn’t thinking about not being 6 feet 9 inches tall anymore, according to the basketball ace, regardless of where he was at the moment. Curry claimed that the fans were more concerned than the players about such matters.
Curry was not on the list of players who had been replaced at the time. The league’s new height listing, he said, is just another topic to discuss.
Curry established records during his conversation with Slater, despite not being on the aforementioned list. He joked in an interview with 95.7 The Game in October 2019 that he had to grow his hair out to get around the NBA’s new height regulation.
Curry’s and Draymond Green’s Reactions to the New Rule
Curry and Green were more concerned about their heights than about winning the game. After an issue with Buddy Hield’s age appeared, the NBA wanted to make sure that all of their players’ measurements and ages were correct.
Marc Stein of the New York Times reported at the time that the NBA had implemented a new regulation requiring every team to verify each player’s height and age during training camp. This announcement arrived just before the NBA season was about to begin, with the Warriors meeting the resurrected Los Angeles Clippers on October 24, 2019.
Most players have already been asked how tall they are, or their team has just listed their weight and height unofficially for several years without updating it. When the new regulation was imposed, Curry, Green, and a few others were taken aback.
Curry, who has been chastised for his lack of height, joked that he had no choice but to pull out as many inches as possible. Curry, who weighs 190 pounds, is more powerful than most people believe.
According to Sports Casting, he can deadlift 400 pounds with ease. Curry, according to Human Performance Consultant Keke Lyles, is the team’s second-best player.
