The University of Southern California has conducted classes online since March 11 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and some students recently heard from someone with two MVPs to his name.

Warriors star Steph Curry dropped by one of USC’s online classes, ESPN’s “SportsCenter” Twitter account posted in a since-deleted tweet crediting a USC student.

Imagine being one of those students’ professors for another class. How do you possibly follow that up?

It’s not clear which class Curry joined, but the 32-year-old has stayed very busy while the NBA season is suspended and California is under statewide orders to shelter in place.

Curry conducted a Q&A on Instagram Live with Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease shared critical information about the coronavirus (COVID-19), and he explained what public-health officials need to see before sporting events can begin again. President Barack Obama even made an appearance.


Ralph Walker retired in July 2018 after providing security for the Warriors for seven years.

His retirement only lasted one season because Steph Curry asked him to come back and Walker couldn’t say no.

Hey speaking of the two-time NBA MVP — you probably want to hear about a time when Walker had to step in and protect Curry, right? 

It’s your lucky day.

From Marcus Thompson of The Athletic:

Finally, at the 2017 ESPYs, Curry got a glimpse of the shadow figure behind the kind man he trusts with his life. “The Equalizer” character showed up.

“Oh yeah,” Curry said, smiling as his eyes lit up. “At the award show. I’ll never forget that.”

Walker was accompanying Curry and his wife to their car after the show in Los Angeles when a fan jumped out of nowhere in the garage. He was an autograph seeker who had been waiting to get a private moment with Curry. But he was forced to explain that from the ground. Before he could speak, Walker laid him out. It all happened so quickly.

“When I put them in the car,” Walker said, “I could see them giggling.”

Don’t mess with Ralph.

It’s really simple.

There might not be a more divisive question confronting humans today.

That question, of course, is: Does pineapple truly belong on pizza?

Not if you ask one Warriors star.

Steph responded to his wife Ayesha with a firm “Hell no!”

This author would disagree with him, but where do you stand?

Time to settle this once and for all.
