The clip, shot by director Ari Fararooy and shared by Sports Illustrated on Sunday, depicts the four-time NBA champion making humongous 3-point shots at a Warriors’ practice facility. Curry, in street clothes, triumphantly exits the gym in glee following the last shot.
Twitter users pointed out the “unreal” nature of the clip. Some said they couldn’t even make such shots in the video game “NBA 2K.”
Janie McCauley, The Associated Press’ Warriors reporter, tweeted that the team confirmed that the clip was not real.
“Looked amazing and fun, for sure,” wrote McCauley, who pointed to a previous article about Curry making 105 straight 3-pointers in 2020.
