Steph Curry and Kevin Durant, former Golden State Warriors teammates who won two NBA titles as a pair, are together again. And they’re together in a place neither of them wants to be anywhere near, reeking of sulphur, fire and brimstone. Yup, they’re in superstar hell.

Not that they’re not trying. Curry went for 50 points last night, shooting 17-for-28 and carrying his defending champion Dubs in the stat sheet.

Well, the answer presently is that we are expecting them to lose, and so, he implies, is Durant.

So Curry and Durant are together again in an unfamiliar kind of hell for them both. It’s a hell made even hotter by the fact that even with their glorious histories, it might be said …read more
