Steph Curry mocks LeBron James workout video with a little help from Kyrie Irving
Remember that rapping, muscle-flexing viral workout video LeBron James posted on Instagram last month?
Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving apparently didn’t appreciate it very much. That led to a bizarre video that surfaced today of Curry mocking James’ moves in the video, while Irving eggs him on, as the two attended Harrison Barnes’ wedding reception Saturday.
Such great hands. This is a kid who knows just what he is. He comes in and he defends. He does not get cheap blocks. He can get up and get a block from behind without fouling, and that gets into the heads of the offensive players. You think about where he is before you shoot in the lane.
He is going to need some offense. Just something, like a 15-footer. His offensive game is pretty much just cutting to the basket. There is no room in the league now for a Ben Wallace-type.
Mason Jr. has also worked to get Sr.’s high school gym and a street named after him. Proceeds from the sales of the sneakers and T-shirts will go to Jr.’s Family on Three Foundation, started in 2015 to impact the youth and community by providing inner-city kids with positive role models strategic enrichment and exposure. (The sneakers can be purchased for $130 at Ewing Athletics’ Web site. The shirts are going for $35 apiece online.)
The launch event, held at retail outlet Jimmy Jazz in Mason Sr.’s South Jamaica Queens, was a glorious occasion. The whole neighborhood as well as many of his friends from St. John’s and the Knicks organization came out to pay respects to one of their own. Mikey’s Lit Ice Cream catered the event, and world-renowned barber Freddy Avila was on hand to bless a chosen few with the custom cut Mason Sr. made him famous for back in the day.
Mason Jr.’s post-basketball career is well on its way. But his story could’ve ended up much, much worse.
