Want to learn how to play basketball or just brush up on your skills? A two-time NBA MVP will offer lessons soon.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry told ESPN on Thursday he will teach an online course next year.
Curry, who has helped the Warriors win two of the last three NBA championships, will run the course on MasterClass, a site where celebrities offer instructions in their field – including Martin Scorsese (filmmaking), Steve Martin (comedy) and Wolfgang Puck (cooking).
So why is Curry offering the course?
Never miss a local story.
“When I was 13, if I had access to this type of curriculum, I would have been a much better player faster,” Curry told ESPN. “It took me a while to learn how to practice and do the drills the right way. I want people to see how I invest in my game, how I train, what I do in my workouts and what’s my mental approach. ... I want them to push and challenge themselves, and hopefully they see the game differently.”
Just don’t look to play above the rim.
“There is no dunking chapter,” he told ESPN. “So, if you’re looking for that, then this is the wrong place to go.”
Curry’s course, which includes at least 15 video lessons, a workbook and shot tracker, is scheduled to go live this winter. It’s $90 for lifetime access.
