Steph Curry is currently celebrating another NBA championship – just 10 years after the star afraid he would never play again

Curry’s early years with the Golden State Warriors were plagued with chronic ankle injuries. In 2013, the team’s new performance director, Keke Lyles, proposed a new explanation for the problem.

Lyles believed that Curry was too dependent on his ankles for speed. The coach devised a training program that transferred the energy generation to the shooter’s hips.

“He would overload his lower legs a lot more than necessary,” Lyles told TNW. “It’s not that he couldn’t use his hips as much, but that wasn’t his first strategy — his body was going elsewhere.”

The new approach soon reaped the benefits. When Lyles left the Warriors in 2015, Curry had just won a Most Valuable Player award and his first league title. LeBron James described the Golden State squad as “the healthiest team I’ve ever seen in NBA history.”

The resources Curry had are inaccessible to most athletes. But Lyles is now betting that AI and motion capture could reap the benefits for the masses.

Our goal is to understand what makes good marksmen.
