You’d think Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry doesn’t have anything more to learn about handling a basketball.

But the three-point wizard learned a thing or two from the real wizards, the Harlem Globetrotters, last night before the Warriors game vs. the Miami Heat at Oracle Arena.

While taking a picture with Globetrotters stars Handles Franklin and Scooter Christensen, Curry admitted he couldn’t spin a basketball on his finger.

Scooter got it going for Curry, who watched the red-white-and-blue Globetrotter ball swirl in front of him. He said it was a “dream come true.”

Curry then lined up for his ritual tunnel shot and called for the Globetrotters’ basketball. Handles threw him the pass and Curry nailed it.

The Globetrotters are in town preparing for seven games in the Bay Area., including tonight and Jan. 18 at Santa Rosa Junior College. Both events begin at 7 p.m.
