Steph Curry is one of the most difficult players to stop in the NBA. The 34-year-old superstar, who won his fourth championship earlier this summer, requires extra attention from opposing defenses.

CJ McCollum knows that very well. The Pelicans guard used astronomical terms to describe how hug Curry is on the offensive end to emphasise how much effort it takes to defend him.

Via Jarrod Castillo of NBC Sports:

“It’s very tough,” McCollum said plainly during the Warriors’ final summer league game.

“You have to throw different bodies at him; this isn’t a guy you can just guard with one person,” he said. “He’s a galaxy, he’s a planet, he’s a solar system. Everything revolves around him.”
