Stephen Curry describes what type of trash-talker he is during games

Stephen Curry is once again playing like a true MVP, and even though the Warriors are one game away from the playoff spot, Curry definitely belongs in the MVP conversation. After having some video game numbers in the last few games, he now passed Bradley Beal as the leading scorer in the NBA, showcasing an incredible repertoire of moves and shooting that nobody in the league can match.

In a recent interview for the Dubs Talk podcast, Curry talked about an exciting topic of using trash-talking to his advantage in any way he can. The classic, old-school trash-talking in which physical confrontations and insulting other players were a norm is no longer active in the NBA today. Players nowadays get fined for using any excessive physicality or derogatory language during games. Therefore, Curry has his own way of letting the opposing players know he has their number in that game.

It's definitely under the radar, and I guess it's my nature in general. I keep it confined to the game, so I don't have material of life or good one-liners, but I keep to what is happening at that moment. I guess my mannerism plays in a bit more than facial expressions or pointing or celebrations that might make people thinking the wrong way. I'm having fun out there.

Curry also added there are still players who try to impose their physicality or insult you in a way that is not related to the game itself, bringing up close friends or family. He tries to keep it confined to the game as much as he can, and Curry is that type of guy that always keeps it super nice, humble, and somewhat innocent even though he is pretty much destroying every defender that has the assignment to guard him.

Some trash-talking gets personal to the point where you are bringing up stuff that has nothing to do with basketball. Some stuff is personal to the point, like I'm just trying to go at your neck. I keep it to the game, and that is how I have fun because I know it's just basketball at the end of the day. We are hooping and competing, and if there is some chattering back and forth or people trying to be physical and that type of staff, I'm ready for those moments as well. I guess I'm not an instigator either, and I'm a good retaliator in that respect.

We've rarely seen Curry get into verbal or any other altercation with others players, and he lets his game do the talking. We've seen on several occasions guys like Pat Beverley that get into his face trying to instigate something, but Curry always kept his cool and never let anyone play mind games with him. Curry's monster performances in the last few weeks are louder than any words, and we can only hope he has more left in the tank to get the Warriors back in the playoffs, hopefully.
