Before Stephen Curry takes on the Mavs and the rest of the NBA, he takes on Stephen Colbert.

Before Stephen Curry takes on the Mavs and the rest of the NBA, he takes on Stephen Colbert.

Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is the reigning NBA MVP, and to that victor go the spoils.

So Steph visited the Late Show with Stephen Colbert where Colbert talked about his beef with sharing the same first name (spelling) as Curry ... oh, and another of his "rivals,''  Stephen Hawking). In an effort to get the proud "Colbert''  name to appear at the top of search engine results, the talk-show host challenged Curry to a shooting contest.

Curry, who has nailed 77 three-pointers in a row, accepted Colbert's challenge to one of the most unconventional shooting contest ever. In one of the greatest upsets ever, Colbert defeated Curry. 

Next up for Colbert? Maybe some sort of Stephen Hawking challenge.

                                

Next up for Curry? Eventually, the Dallas Mavericks have to deal with him, the first meeting for the coming new season slated for Wednesday, December 30. See our complete Mavs schedule analysis here.
