Give Stephen Curry some real credit for having presence in mind... and not only for deciding whether to pull up for an insanely long three-pointer, dish to an open teammate or break defenders' ankles with a crossover.
After dropping 36 points to lead the defending champion Golden State Warriors to a rallying victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night, Curry was doing a post-game interview on the court when teammate Draymond Green ran by and dumped ice-cold water on his head.
Instead of cursing on live television, Curry shrieked, "mother sucker," feeling the chill of the water down his spine.
The man can do no wrong this season and neither can his squad.
With the win, Curry's Warriors became the quickest team in NBA history to reach 50 victories. At 50-5, they're in position to break Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls all-time best regular season record of 72-10, set back in the 1995-96 season.
Hey, for what it's worth, MJ wants the Warriors to break the Bulls' record.
With ice running through Curry's veins, as he leads the league in scoring with 29.8 points per game, it's definitely possible.
Man, that Curry is too cool for school... literally.
