Stephen Curry left Charles Barkley at a literal loss for words

Tuesday May 10th, 2016

Newly-anointed MVP Stephen Curry had himself a night on Monday. After missing two weeks due to a sprained MCL, Curry came off the bench to score 40 points, 17 of which came in overtime, in a Game 4 win over the Trail Blazers.

It left the entire nation befuddled. A player that was called “doubtful” to play 24 hours before tip-off completely dominated the game in limited time. 

That included Charles Barkley, who had absolutely no idea how to describe what he’d just seen.

Need that transcribed for you? Here you go:

That what I...that...that was a...that—that was ri—that was on the sa—ahh. That was crazy, man. That—that’s unbelievable.

I think I would have said the exact same thing had I seen Curry drop 17 in overtime moments prior.
