Last time Steph Curry was in Denver, I watched the Denver Nuggets beat him and his Golden State Warriors in a pretty epic game.
Maybe he was distracted that night? Maybe that was the same trip as this video? I don’t know, but he definitely showed these North High School Vikings players who was boss in a game of H-O-R-S-E that was for no apparent reason — maybe I’m not GQ’s target market here? — actually a game of sesquipedalian.
Merriam-Webster, which is so hot right now, defines sesquipedalian as “having many syllables,” or “given to or characterized by the use of long words.” Great work, everybody. What’s the word for a distracting joke that Steph bails on literally while delivering it in a YouTube video that I wish featured the North High kids a little more?
Presumably, this was all in connection to a photo shoot Curry did for a GQ feature. You can see him pictured in various North High locations doing things that make perfect sense, like holding a blue basketball while sitting on a bicycle in the hallway and wearing a nice red sweater with a kitty cat on it under a tight suit, right here.
