SAN JOSE (KRON)—Steph Curry is a two-time NBA MVP, but he has other talents as well.
KRON4’s Spencer Blake caught up with the Warriors star guard who was in the South Bay playing a different sport.
You kind of have to yell at a bowling alley to be heard.
Saturday at San Jose’s brand new Bowlero, the screaming fans almost drowned out the music.
“We reached out to the Currys because we were so excited to launch Bowlero San Jose, and what better than to launch it with the Currys?” said Colie Edison of Bowlmore AMF.
The bowling alley is the newly-renovated version of the old Bowlmore center.
But let’s be honest, most of these people had their priorities set: Currys first, bowling second.
“You know what, they seemed really nice, real down to earth, I mean there were a lot of people around here and they were real nice to sign stuff like that. We were screaming out, ‘Steph Curry! MVP!'” said Warriors fan Gus Aldaco.
Some of them got to mix both of those priorities.
“We were able to work with Steph and Ayesha to come out,” Edison said. “They agreed to greet everybody, and we had 20 lucky winners bowl with them.”
Lucky indeed, 5,000 people had RSVP’d to come to the event, but the bowling alley had to trim that list down considerably and as luck would have it, most of the bowlers who got to join Team Steph and Team Ayesha were kids.
Everybody else crowded around getting selfies, signatures, and smiles.
In true Steph Curry fashion, he kept signing autographs well after his security detail prodded him along to leave.
Now, bowlers here have a basketball-tint on their bowling game.
“I just have to find the right ball for my wrist,” said Warriors fan Julie Gronbach. “I have small hands. I don’t have Steph Curry hands.”
The bowling battle between husband and wife ended up with a win for Team Steph. I guess he’s MVP in multiple sports.
