"I was a little mad at myself and getting back into the grind of working out for next season," Curry told ESPN over the weekend during his tour through Asia. "I think it was a good motivator to get back into the gym and keep working."
But after what happened to him in one of his first game since watching the instant classic, Steph might need to rewatch it for yet more motivation.
Because he got stuffed by a teenager in the Philippines.

Apparenlty the reigning two-time MVP was frustrated enough to demand a do-over, though the tweet reporting that has since been deleted: "Uhm, so Steph asked for a replay of the last 5 secs haha [smiley emoji] then @mamuinthesea just put up both hands and SPLASH [water emoji]"
But I suppose Curry can rest a little easier knowing that it wasn't just any 17-year-old who rejected him, it was Gian Mamuyac, who plays for the nation's under-18 team.

The moment certainly left an impression on Mamuyac, who can likely die happy knowing he did what so few have done—get the best of the two-time MVP.
The recent happenings are so far the best souvenirs which I would treasure throughout my lifetime. Truly one for the books and these blessings wouldn't be possible without @titan_22 and @underarmourph . Huge thank you to sir @pjpilares , @juttsulit and Ate @mitchfajardo !! This trip wouldn't be as fun and memorable if it weren't for them!! #Lifestyleyaneh #fam
