On November 12, Stephen Curry scored 46 points as his Golden State Warriors beat up on the Minnesota Timberwolves. It was his second best scoring output of the season. and the reigning MVP has a theory for why he did so well in Minneapolis: His wife had just bought him a fancy new toilet.
Curry first mentioned the throne on Twitter with the kind of glee rarely seen in toilet tweets.
Then on Monday ESPN asked Curry about the can. "Oh, man, that toilet just makes me happy in life," he said. "I bet if I did a case study on my performance since I got that toilet, you'd see the difference."
Naturally, someone has done such a study and the results are mixed. Complex Sports found that Curry's scoring is up AFT (after fancy toilet), but his steals and rebounds are down.
The stats aren't really relevant here though. If the toilet makes Curry feel better and that makes him feel like he's playing better, then the crapper deserves credit. And at the end of the season, it deserves its own ring.
