'Greatest Shooter in NBA History' Played With Blurry Vision

'Greatest Shooter in NBA History' Played With Blurry Vision”

Golden State are going for their third straight National Basketball Association title, and are in a good position to finish top of the Western Conference, thus securing home advantage through the playoffs. But according to Curry, he has had trouble seeing for his entire National Basketball Association career.

In a developing story from the Athletic, Golden State Warriors star, Steph Curry details to Marcus Thompson II how his shooting slump during February to early March was attributed to being unable to see the basket clearly. His improved form included a nine-game streak where he successfully drained at least five three-pointers in each game.

Curry has the condition, Keratoconus, which causes distorted and blurred vision.

Among the various malaises that have plagued the Golden State Warriors in their quest for a three-peat was an unexpected one: After the All-Star break, Steph Curry was no longer an other-worldly shooter from three-point range.

The results have been dramatic, as Curry, in nine games since then, has gone 56 of 125 for a.487 percentage.

Curry said wearing specialized contact lenses feels like he has new eyes, but he explained he didn't get contacts sooner because he felt his eyesight "was normal". "It's like the whole world has opened up".

"I had gotten so used to squinting for so long", he added.

For the season, the two-time NBA MVP is averaging 27.7 points per game with 5.3 assists and 5.3 rebounds.

"I started wearing contacts", Curry said.

"It's a genetic condition Curry was probably born with, though scientists don't know how it is acquired".
