Even Stephen Curry’s Fellow NBA Players Couldn’t Believe His Performance Last Night

It may be time to just accept that Stephen Curry is not one of us.

It may be time to just accept that Stephen Curry is not one of us.

The Golden State Warriors star and 2015-16 NBA MVP shoe-in took his knack for shot from behind the arc to new levels on Saturday night (Feb. 28). Fighting off Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder for a 121-118 win, Curry’s three-point shot was on fire, as he beat his own record for most threes made in a season, and tied the record for most three made in a single NBA game. After two clutch free throws from Andre Iguodala to take the nail-biter into overtime, Curry sealed the deal with one last three-point shot–this time from 38 feet out:

In the hard-fought win, Curry finished with 46 points, 288 three-pointers made in a single season (with 24 games to go), and a single-game record that puts him in the realm of Kobe Bryant. Asked about the feat at the game’s conclusion, Curry made it all seem like #NoBigDeal:

"Honestly, I don't know exactly where I am, so it's not like I'm calibrating in my head, all right, 38 feet, 37, 36," he said. "Just literally, you've got a sense of -- I've shot the shot plenty of times, you're coming across half court and timing up your dribbles, and you want to shoot before the defense goes in. And that was pretty much my only thought."

Aside from his own wife, Ayesha Curry, being wowed by his big night, NBA players past and present also marveled at Curry’s other-worldly ability:

The Warriors will face off against the Thunder once again on Thursday (Mar. 3).

112 Hints At A Christian Music Collaboration With Kanye West

Kanye West's highly-anticipated album, Yandhi is nowhere to be found, but that doesn't mean the rapper hasn't been working on new music. In fact, Ye is looking into creating new tunes in the Christian music genre. According to 112's Slim, the R&B group is teaming up with Kanye to produce new music that will draw the new generation to church.

Slim made the revelation during an interview with TMZ on Monday (Jan. 21). Unfortunately, Slim wouldn't drop too many details about the project, but hinted that the collaboration could or could not happen.

"Kanye being a musical genius, he’ll do an album and then scrap it," he said. "Whatever happens, it’s something that God wanted to happen."

Slim's latest comments come shortly after a video surfaced online of 112 serenading Kim Kardashian with a rendition of their single "Cupid" on FaceTime. The clip went viral, prompting suspicion of a possible collaboration.

Aside from music, Slim said he also talked to Kanye to see where he was mentally. "Kanye is in a real good place," he revealed. "We were talking about things that were more spiritual and he’s in a real good place right now."

Stay tuned to see if the Kanye West and 112 Christian collaboration actually happens.

Chris Brown To Sue Rape Accuser For Defamation

Chris Brown is reportedly gearing up to take legal action against the woman who accused him of raping her at a hotel in Paris. The singer will reportedly sue her for defamation, TMZ reports.

Brown's Parisian lawyer, Raphael Chiche, says his client adamantly denies the allegations and plans to challenge them in court. "Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him," Chiche said in a statement. "He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris."

As previously reported, Brown was arrested on Jan. 22, after a 24-year-old woman filed a complaint claiming that he violently raped her in his Paris hotel. He was released from police custody without charges. Shortly after the incident, Brown took to Instagram where he claimed that the woman was lying. Another woman also jumped to the singer's defense, stating that he was not at the scene at the time of the alleged assault.

While the singer is free to leave the country, an official investigation into the alleged incident is still ongoing. It does not appear that Brown or his legal team have filed the defamation suit at this time.
