Brent Barry Talks MVP Stephen Curry on The RE Show – 5/20/15

TRANSCRIPT

STEPH CURRY NOW HAS THE
MOST CAREER PLAYOFF GAMES WITH
FIVE MADE THREES AND FIVE
ASSISTS AND JUST NEEDED 30
PLAYOFF GAMES TO DO THAT.
IT TOOK KOBE 220 PLAYOFF GAMES.
>> AND A HECK OF A LOT MORE
THREES.
>> I KNOW.
SO HOW GOOD IS THIS KID, BRENT?
HOW GOOD IS HE?
>> YOU KNOW, IT SEEMS JUST LIKE
LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE.
THIS IS NOT TO TAKE ANYTHING
AWAY FROM STEPH CURRY AND HIS
ABILITY.
HIS ASCENT HAS BEEN LIKE A
ROCKET LAUNCH.
YOU KNOW, NO PUN INTENDED.
IT'S THE FACT THAT THE GAME HAS
CHANGED AROUND HIM AND THAT HE'S
KIND OF THE EXACT PROTOTYPICAL
PROTOTYPE, I GUESS HE SHATTERS
THE MOLD, BUT HE IS THE EXACT
GUY FOR THIS GAME TO COME ALONG
AT THIS TIME AND IT IS LIGHTNING
IN A BOTTLE.
HE IS PHENOMENAL IN TERMS OF
WHAT HE DOES WITH THE
BASKETBALL, HIS SHOOTING RANGE.
BUT THE TIMING OF EVERYTHING
FROM STEPH CURRY SEEMS TO BE
JUST COMPLETELY APPROPRIATE TO
WHERE THE GAME IS HEADED.
HE'S HAD AN INCREDIBLE SEASON, A
GREAT POSTSEASON.
THE WARRIORS ARE ON A MONUMENTAL
RUN BEHIND STEVE KERR AND WHAT
HE'S BEEN ABLE TO DO WITH THAT
ROSTER.
AND IT JUST FEELS LIKE THEY CAN
DO NO WRONG AT THIS POINT.
>> AND HE'S GOT A PRETTY CUTE
DAUGHTER TOO.
YOU KNOW, THAT'S WHAT A LOT OF
PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT AFTER
THAT GAME LAST NIGHT AS HE
BROUGHT HIS DAUGHTER TO THE
PODIUM.
>> DO WE LIKE THAT?
DO WE LIKE THE KIDS AT THE PRESS
CONFERENCE?
>> I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THAT,
BRENT, BECAUSE CLEARLY YOU'RE
FROM AN NBA FAMILY.
>> MY DAD WOULD NEVER LET ME GO
IN THERE, RICH.
>> IS THAT RIGHT?
RICK WOULD NEVER BRING YOU UP ON
THE PODIUM?
>> HE WOULDN'T LET ME GO HOME
LET ALONE GET INTO THE
PRESSROOM.
>> WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT,
BRENT?
>> NO, I'M KIDDING.
I DON'T KNOW, IT'S A GREAT WAY
TO DEFLECT A BUNCH OF BORING
QUESTIONS, I CAN TELL YOU THAT.
YOU BRING YOUR SON OR YOUR
DAUGHTER INTO THE PRESSROOM AND
THEY'RE SITTING WITH YOU.
INSTEAD OF ANSWERING 15
QUESTIONS, YOU MIGHT GET SIX OR
SEVEN BECAUSE YOUR YOUNGSTER IS
ACTING UP A LITTLE BIT OR NEEDS
TO GO HOME OR IT'S TIME FOR THE
BOTTLE.
I DON'T KNOW.
I MEAN THESE GUYS ARE HUMAN
BEINGS, THEY HAVE LIVES.
THEY HAVE THINGS GOING ON.
IF THEY WANT TO BRING†-- THEY
GET ENOUGH QUESTIONS IN THE
LOCKER ROOM AND THINGS LIKE
THAT.
IF THEY WANT TO BRING THEIR KIDS
OUT FOR THE PRESS CONFERENCE, IF
IT'S SOMETHING THEY WANT TO DO,
YEAH, I'M ALL FOR IT.
IT MAKES IT WAY LESS BORING.
>> BUT IT'S NOT LIKE HE BRICKED
UP THE NIGHT AND THE WARRIORS
LOST.
I MEAN HE JUST†--
>> RIGHT.
>> RIGHT?
SO IT'S JUST†-- I WOULD PROBABLY
HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT IF IT'S
AFTER A LOSS, BRENT.
>> YEAH, I THINK THAT THAT'S
LEGITIMATE.
MAYBE THE LEAGUE†-- THERE WILL
BE ENOUGH DISCUSSION ON SOCIAL
MEDIA, I WOULD GUESS, AFTER
STEPH'S DAUGHTER ABOUT HOW IT IS
THE LEAGUE SHOULD HANDLE THIS
WITH REGARDS TO, AND I GET IT,
THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE EVENT.
IT'S PLAYOFF BASKETBALL.
GUYS HAVE LEGITIMATE QUESTIONS
AND THERE'S JOURNALISTS OUT
THERE TRYING TO DO A JOB THAT
WOULD LIKE TO ASK ABOUT SOME
STRATEGY, THIS, THAT AND THE
OTHER AND THERE'S PLENTY OF
OPPORTUNITIES, I WILL SAY THIS,
TO DO THAT BEFORE A PLAYER GOES
INTO THE PRESSROOM FOR THE MAJOR
PRESSER AFTER THE GAME THAT YOU
CAN STILL GET TO THE PLAYER FOR
THOSE SERIOUS TYPE QUESTIONS.
BUT YEAH, MAYBE THERE IS
PRECEDENT ABOUT, HEY, IF YOU
WIN†-- MOST OF THE TIME THIS
HAPPENS AT HOME, RIGHT, RICH,
BECAUSE THE FAMILIES ARE THERE
AND THEY'RE NOT TRAVELING
USUALLY DURING THE PLAYOFFS.
SO IT ENDS UP MOST OF THE TIME
BEING A WINNING TEAM'S PLAYER
THAT'S IN THERE WITH THEIR KID.
