The Warriors point guard is pictured on the popular magazine regionally this week, shooting a jumper with the Oracle Arena faithful in the background.
The last time Golden State was on the Sports Illustrated cover was December 1997, when All-Star guard Latrell Sprewell choked coach P.J. Carlesimo. The last time they were on the cover for on-court performance was in December 1980 when Lloyd “World B.” Free was featured.
So if Curry has a rough shooting night, would the SI jinx be to blame? The last time the Warriors were the cover, they went through a 16-year All-Star drought.
