Throwback to the time when WNBA star Candace Parker said this about Stephen Curry’s 50-point game
Way back in 2021, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry was having a highlight season. Curry’s 2021-22 NBA season will forever be goated in his NBA career.
Further, in the 2021-22 season, GSW became the NBA champion and subsequently, Stephen Curry won the NBA Finals MVP.
During the 2021-22 NBA season, sharpshooter Steph Curry put up many legendary performances, regular season and Playoffs alike.
However, one particular performance of Curry grabbed eyeballs because it was miraculously predicted by WNBA star, Candace Parker. Let us know what went down.
What did Candace Parker say about the legendary Stephen Curry 50-point game?
Two-time WNBA champion, Candace Parker became a future teller for one night. Candace who is also an analyst on TNT was surprisingly able to predict the future performance of Stephen Curry.
On the date of November 9, 2021, Las Vegas Aces star, Candace Parker tweeted the future performance of four-time NBA champion Stephen Curry.
“Steph is gona have 50 tonight…. Anytime you play against a young protégé you gotta let ‘em know”, tweeted Parker.
The most eye-grabbing part of Parker’s tweet was this – “anytime you play against a young protégé you gotta let em know,” So, who is this ‘young protégé?’
The ‘young protégé’ answer was simple; at the time of Parker’s tweet, Golden State Warriors were facing the Atlanta Hawks. Hawks have their own star guard, Trae Young, who is often referred to as Curry’s ‘protégé.’
Candace Parker hence referred to Trae Young as the young protégé of Steph Curry.
Did Stephen Curry really have a 50-point game like Candace Parker predicted?
Believe it or not, Stephen Curry actually had a 50-point game, making Parker’s prediction come true.
In that particular game night against Atlanta Hawks, Stephen Curry finished the game with 50 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds. At that point in time, it was 33-year-old Steph’s season-high score.
He completed the scoreline by finishing 14-for-28 from the field, 9-for-19 from 3-point range, and 13-for-13 from the free throw line in 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, Curry’s protégé, Trae Young, had just 28 points, nine assists, and three rebounds.
Moreover, Golden State Warriors won over Atlanta Hawks 127-113.
Looks like Parker really is a fortune teller. And why she should not? After all, greatness identifies greatness.
