Stephen Curry’s overtime left Paul Allen dumbfounded
Stephen Curry returned to the Warriors Monday night after missing the first three games of the Western Conference semifinals, and after shaking off some rust, the presumed MVP exploded for a historic overtime scoring outburst of 17 points, the most by a player in a single overtime in NBA history.
Watching such a performance is breathtaking, in a good way if you are a Warriors fan or just tuning in to see basketball at its highest level, and in a terribly depressing way if you are Trial Blazers owner Paul Allen, who sat courtside looking perplexed after Curry dropped another three on Portland in extra time.
As you might imagine, the image of a slack-jawed Allen quickly became popular on Twitter.
The bad news for Allen is he is probably going to be a popular meme for a few weeks and then intermittently brought back up for a couple years. The good news is he has an enormous amount of money and this probably doesn’t bother him at all.
Allen probably made the same face when his Seahawks lost to the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
