Steph Curry’s peculiar request to autograph hunter

The MVP of the NBA Finals agreed to a fan’s request for his autograph - but only after he put his physical prowess on display during a celebrity golf tournament.

Right now, few can argue that Stephen Curry is one of the best players in NBA history. His career, which includes four championship rings - the most recent achieved last month against the Boston Celtics - and a wide variety of awards and individual records, are just about as a good an endorsement you could wish for. Not to mention his affable character and his commitment to various causes, which have also led him to be one of the NBA’s most popular stars.

So it’s no surprise that fans are willing to do almost anything to get an autograph from their idol, as Curry himself has noted with a post he shared on his social account. The Warriors point guard is currently taking part in the American Century Championship, a golf tournament for celebrities being staged near Lake Tahoe along with other celebrities such as Nick Jonas, Aaron Rodgers, Charles Barkley, Vince Carter and Patrick Mahomes.

As the NBA Finals MVP was about to play a hole, a young fan asked him how many push-ups he had to do to get his signature. Curry replied that the magic number was 30 - the same number he wears for the Golden State Warriors - so the kid took off his cap, emptied his pockets before doing 30 perfect push-ups in front of the attentive player gaze.

“The young man asked how many push-ups to get the autograph: 30, of course,” the NBA star shared on his profiles along with the video of the moment. Needless to say, the young man achieved his goal. In fact, Curry signed his Warriors jersey even before he reached his target, sparking laughter from those present. So if you’re unlucky enough to run into Steph Curry and want his autograph, you might want to start thinking about doing some training because you never know what the NBA star might ask of you in return.
