Stephen Curry: All-Star Game slam makes up for January dunk fail

Stephen Curry whimsically suggested after Sunday’s All-Star Game that his dunk earlier in the evening served as redemption for his comical dunk fail during a game in January.

The Golden State Warriors superstar threw down a reverse alley-oop slam in the waning moments of Team Giannis’  178-164 loss to Team LeBron, showing that he has the hops to throw it down despite dunks not typically being part of his on-court repertoire.

After the game, Curry made mention of his infamous slip-and-fall gaffe on a dunk attempt, a rare entry for the superstar on the blooper reel.

“For all y’all who saw me [slip] in L.A., I redeemed myself,” Curry said. “That was the best part of my night.”

It goes without saying that Curry should feel some sense of redemption after throwing one down with authority at the All-Star Game, although it’s not like he really has anything to prove in the first place.
