Steph Curry Quotes About Shooting

I can get better. I haven’t reached my ceiling yet on how well I can shoot the basketball.

Every time I rise up, I have confidence that I’m going to make it.

I want to practice to the point where it’s almost uncomfortable how fast you shoot, so that in the game things kind of slow down.

What goes through my head when I’m going to take a game-winning shot is… I better make it. Don’t be afraid of the moment.

I learned how quickly I actually released my shot off the dribble. I know that’s something I work on, and really use in games, but I didn’t know exactly how quick it was, down to like the millisecond.

The best shooters shoot the exact same way every single time they look at the basket.

Quotes About Life

My wife would probably say I’m the messiest person in the history of husbands.

There’s more to me than just this jersey I wear.

You don’t have to live anybody else’s story.

What I tell people is to be the best version of yourself in anything that you do. You don’t have to live anybody else’s story.

Make sure you live in the moment and work your butt off every single day, and I hope I inspire people all around the world to just be themselves, be humble and be grateful for all the blessings in your life.

If you take time to realize what your dream is and what you really want in life — no matter what it is, whether it’s sports or in other fields — you have to realize that there is always work to do, and you want to be the hardest working person in whatever you do, and you put yourself in a position to be successful. And you have to have a passion for what you do. Basketball was mine, and that’s what’s carried me to this point.

Quotations on Character

There’s more to life than basketball. The most important thing is your family and taking care of each other and loving each other no matter what.

Kids put life into perspective. I never have a bad day. Life happens and you get bad news sometimes, or things don’t go your way at work – for me that might mean I lose a game or not play well – but that doesn’t affect my mood from day-to-day. I love going home and seeing the smiles on my daughters’ faces being happy to see me, and that makes everything all right.

Everything happens for a reason, and everything has a story, and if you take time to realize what your dream is and what you really want in life… whether it’s sports, whether it’s in other fields, you have to realize that there’s always work to do.

If you don’t fall how are you going to know what getting up is like?

No better blessing than the responsibility of fatherhood.

About Confidence

I’ve never been afraid of big moments. I get butterflies. I get nervous and anxious, but I think those are all good signs that I’m ready for the moment.

I’m not the guy who’s afraid of failure. I like to take risks, take the big shot and all that.

Every time I rise up, I have confidence that I’m going to make it.

On the court, I’m not afraid of anything. I try to have confidence and have a belief in myself.

Success comes after you conquer your biggest obstacles and hurdles.

About God and Faith

There’s more to me than just this jersey I wear, and that’s Christ living inside of me.

I know I have a place in Heaven waiting for me because of Him, and that’s something no earthly prize or trophy could ever top.

Jesus is everything to me.

I can’t say enough, how important my faith is to how I play the game and who I am.

It represents a Bible verse I wear on my shoe. Philippians 4:13. It says ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ It’s also my mantra, how I get up for games and why I play the way I do.

I do a little sign on the court every time I make a shot or a good pass and I pound my chest and point to the sky – it symbolizes that I have a heart for God. It’s something that my mom and I came up with in college and I do it every time I step on the floor as a reminder of who I’m playing for.

Doesn’t matter where you come from, what you have or don’t have… All you need to have is faith in God, and undying passion for what you do, what you choose to do in this life, and a relentless drive and the will to do whatever it takes to be successful at whatever you put your mind to.

I can get better. I haven’t reached my ceiling yet on how well I can shoot the basketball.

About Basketball

I love that basketball gives me the opportunities to do good things for people and to point them towards the Man who died for our sins on the cross.

I love playing basketball; there’s no doubt about it. It’s something I’ve been doing since — what, mom and dad, two? With Fisher-Price goals. My grandma’s here; we were talking about it yesterday. She used to be my commentator. She used to be Bob Fitzgerald for me counting down the scores. I hit a game-winning shot or whatever, and I’d stumble over and give her a high five, stuff like that.

I really cherish everything that basketball brings; and I think, for me, it’s been a great ride and I’m not done yet.

Every step of the way I think you learn something that makes you a better player and all those lessons really come out when it matters the most in a championship.

I like to get in passing lanes and use my hands, and kind of be a pest out there.

The more years I go, the more experience I have, the more that nutrition and eating the right foods is important for recovery and things like that.

Basketball isn’t just a sport. It is an art, one that must be mastered to succeed.

I prepare to the point where instinct takes over.

Basketball Sayings

When it comes to basketball, I was always the smallest kid on my team. I had a terrible, ugly, catapult shot from the time I was 14 because I wasn’t strong enough to shoot over my head, and I had to reconstruct that over the summer and it was the worst three months of my life. You’d think there are no hurdles or obstacles that I had to overcome, but even when I got to high school I wasn’t ranked.

Being a superstar means you’ve reached your potential, and I don’t think I’ve reached my potential as a basketball player and as a leader yet.

About Teamwork

I’d rather be a non-All-Star playing in the Western Conference NBA Finals than an All-Star who’s sitting at home in May.

Success is not an accident, success is actually a choice.

In a game, there are so many different variables that are thrown at you – the defense, where your teammates are, how fast your body’s moving, and you have to be in control of all those decisions.

All 14 guys on the team have sacrificed something to get to this point.
