Dallas Mavericks: Seth Curry talks shooting with J.J. Redick
By Tyler Watts
Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry went on The J.J. Redick Podcast to talk shooting, Duke, and more. Find out about Curry’s routine.
The Dallas Mavericks were looking to make a strong close to the regular season. They played 67 games before action was suspended. The Mavs were locked into a playoff position and ready to make a push.
Seth Curry was catching fire too. During the 2020 portion of the schedule, he averaged 15.8 points and 2.9 3-pointers made in 27.4 minutes over 28 games. Curry was shooting 55.0 percent from the field and 50.9 percent on his threes. He was incredible. Curry allowed the Mavericks to space the floor and cash in open looks. It also pushed him up to the second-best 3-point percentage in NBA history.
Seth Curry joined fellow stellar shooter J.J. Redick and his co-host Tommy Alter on The J.J. Redick Podcast on May 7. The two discussed a host of topics. The conversation often centered around shooting.
Redick asked Curry what his shooting regime looks like during a normal offseason. Here is what Curry had to say.
"“I’m just like a junkie. I can’t stay out of the gym, really. So I watch Steph end his season and he’ll take two months off and not touch a basketball for two months. For me, I take maximum two weeks. During that two weeks, I’m trying to do some like yoga. Stay off the hard workout training, really map out my workouts as I ramp up. So, I get back into weight training, get back into light shooting, and then more movement and more movement as the summer goes along… Towards the end of the summer, I’m already heading into training camp at 95 percent of where I want to be.”"
Curry talked about trying to master one shot during a workout instead of splitting the time on a bunch of different attempts.
Toward the end of the interview, Curry discusses his time in Sacramento when he knew he belonged in the NBA. They discuss a game where he dropped 19 on Redick’s Clippers. That was before Seth had his true breakout in Dallas. It was his first opportunity to get NBA minutes and prove he belonged.
There is plenty of Duke talk as well. Both men played for the Blue Devils in college. Curry also talks about looking up to Redick during those days and what it was like to play for coach Mike Krzyzewski. Fans can check out the entire interview below.
Curry also shares his thoughts on The Last Dance, the G League, playing with Luka and Zion, and so much. Please enjoy it out if you have some sparse time.
