After the Warriors’ PG torches the Nets, an NBA analyst labels Curry a ‘Choker.’

Steph Curry has won two regular-season MVP awards and has appeared in five NBA Finals with the Golden State Warriors. He also has three championship rings.

Despite this, critics continue to accuse him of failing to show up when it matters.

In a parody of the tired, hackneyed sports debate argument of “do it in a big game” or “show me something when it counts,” Fox Sports analyst Skip Bayless criticized Curry on Twitter Tuesday night for a brilliant regular season performance against Kevin Durant and the Eastern Conference favorite Brooklyn Nets.

Bayless, ever the sneering detractor of incredible feats, failed to appreciate yet another example of Curry’s sustained greatness by comparing it to one of the few times the league’s reigning scoring champion failed to produce at an absolute peak level.

Sure, now that he’s up 21, Steph can throw his wow bombs.

Look at his playoff record and see how many times he’s come up short in crunch time.

Start with Games 5, 6, and 7 of the 2016 Finals, when he helped the Cavaliers squander a 3-1 series lead over KyrieLeBron.

“Sure, now that we’re up 21, Steph can hit his wow bombs.”

Look at his playoff resume and see how many times he’s come up short in the clutch,” Bayless tweeted on Tuesday, November 16.

“Start with Games 5, 6, and 7 of the 2016 Finals, when he helped the Cavaliers squander a 3-1 lead over KyrieLeBron with Games 5 and 7 at home.”

With a rout of the Nets in Brooklyn, Curry and the Dubs silence doubters.

In an attempt to promote his weekday morning television show, Bayless continued his baseless onslaught on Curry’s basketball character and mettle throughout Wednesday morning.

But for everyone else who isn’t making a living off of obnoxiously loud and sensationalistic nonsense, there was little to criticize about the Dubs’ point guard’s performance Tuesday night.

Curry was unstoppable all night, putting up 37 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and a (plus)16 plusminus rating in a 117-99 win over the Nets, according to ESPN. He was also incredibly efficient, shooting 12-of-19 from the field, including 9-of-14 from behind the 3-point arc.
