Like a pull-up 3-pointer off the screen, Curry executed the shot with relative ease. With perfect loft and expert touch, he knocked it within eight feet of the hole. They looked at each other and broke out into laughter. Curry knew what to do all along, he was just showing off and messing with West. He birdied the par-4 hole. Yes, he missed the cut, finishing 8-over-par through two rounds, which was only better than seven of the golfers to start the tournament.
But he put together a performance that will be remembered, an athletic feat that bolsters his legacy. At the height of his NBA, Curry switched sports — amid heavy criticism — and took on some professional golfers, and earned their respect.
And West was right by his side. So he had to bow out of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the sake of their business. His job is to help the young players transition into NBA life, develop them into professionals off the court. Like 78 is more accurate. West is entering his sixth season with the franchise after working at Wasserman Media Group where general manager Bob Myers was an agent.
West started assisting with personnel and advance scouting duties. When Myers was promoted to president of basketball operations in September , West came back over to the big club for his current post. When his dad took the consultant job with the Los Angeles Clippers in June, leaving the Warriors after six years, West said he never talked to his father about following him. It is. Curry and West have similar backgrounds, raised up by NBA dads.
Like Curry has done, West is trying to emerge from the shadow of his father — the legendary basketball executive version, anyway. That relationship was needed during this golf tournament. Curry was out of his element, against incredible odds. And he was nervous. Curry broke his usual habit of shunning commentary. Especially after he shot a 74 in the first round.
The competitor that Curry is, he was determined to prove them all wrong. That determination, however, had the potential to work against him. Curry already takes it too seriously.

The basic Johnny West figure was constructed of solid body parts that were injection molded in caramel brown polyethylene plastic, with the head and hands made from a softer, more pliable 'flesh-colored' PVC material. The parts were then fastened together to create a highly poseable form with articulating arms and legs.
A "quick-draw" version of the figure was marketed for a couple years at the end of the line starting in It featured a raising right arm activated by a lever on the back, and a special holster that allowed a pistol accessory to be drawn.
This deluxe version was cast in blue plastic.Welcome to Johnny West's Classic TV and Music Video Channel, home of the obscure and the forgotten. Me and Jane West are out to salvage entertainment history.
