Practice English Speaking&Listening with: How Stephen Curry SAVED His Ankles With ONE Thing In The NBA

Difficulty: 0

Stephen Curry is a 2 time MVP and probably the best shooter of all time, but there was

a time where he couldnt even be on the court because he kept injuring his ankles,

so how did he stop injuring his ankles?

What is up dudes, dudettes, ballers, players.

Its ya boi MJ.

Curry has tweaked his ankles 17 times!

17 times and has missed countless games.

His ankles were and are still noodles.

But ever since 2013, hes been relatively healthy.

How did he just stop his noodle ankles from getting injured?

Make your guess in the comments and let me know if you think Curry is the greatest shooter

of all time.

Steph Curry has always had a hard path when it came to basketball.

In high school, he was small and had to relearn how to shoot.

No college offered him a spot except Davidson and coming into the NBA, people doubted his

potential because of his size.

And then for the first 4 years of his career, Curry was plagued with ankle problems.

I made a video on why Curry kept injuring his ankle and check that out if you wanna

know specifics on that, but Currys ankles were turning in crazy ways that no one could

expect like this one against the Spurs.

People thought it was his size, that he had weak ankles and everyone thought that he would

pretty much have an injury prone NBA career.

Thats when everything changed.

In the summer of 2013, a man by the name Keke Lyles joined the Warriors training staff.

Lyles is an expert in injury prevention and decided to tell Curry work on his hip strength

and not his ankles.

Crazy right?

He had Curry do the single-leg airplane pose and Curry, like most people, couldnt keep


It was test that showed Currys hip strength was normal, but not strong.

Just like everything up to this point Curry had to rework everything.

He strengthened his hips, glutes, and core so that he could handle the jerky movements

of an NBA game.

He worked on it all summer and has kept working on his core, not his ankles.

Lyles would say that hes 10 times stronger than his size now.

When Curry started, Curry could barely deadlift 200 pounds.

Now, Curry can deadlift 400 pounds which is the more than anyone else on the Warriors.

Thats a result of his hard work.

After making himself stronger, Curry then subjected himself to quick movements with

contact to test out how he can use his stronger body.

After all this, he was ready.

The next year, Curry didnt deal with ankle injuries and played 78 games in the season.

It was until 2016 in the playoffs when Curry injured his ankle.

Curry still has weak ankles, but he has worked extremely hard to strengthen himself everywhere

else so that his ankles were a thing of the past.

The one thing he did was strengthen his core and hips and not his ankles.

Thank you Keke Lyles because without you, we might have missed out on the amazingness

of Steph Curry.

But thats been a theme of Steph Curry, hasnt it?

Hes always worked hard to improve his talents and to overcome all the limitations he has

on the court.

I think thats why I love his story so much is because he is an example of what hard work

can do and if you set your mind to it, you really can push yourself to be great.

I know Im doing that but what do you think?

Is Curry one of the hardest working athletes?

Is he the greatest shooter of all time?
