Viral video of Stephen Curry hitting five straight field goals (Twitter)
An unusual video conquered the social networks this morning (Monday): Stephen Curry, the star of Golden State, is seen hitting five consecutive shots from a full court.
The video received tens of millions of views all over the world, when everyone knows: if there is a basketball player in the world who is capable of doing such a thing - it's only Steph Curry.
However, it is now being claimed in the US that this is a fake video, skillfully edited.
Steph, the two-time NBA MVP, is known for his crazy shots.
Beyond his tremendous performance on the court, over the years, videos of him in training or during warm-ups before games have surfaced, in which he scores baskets from a long distance, difficult angles, high arcs, and of course endless sequences of shots beyond the three-point arc.

However, now AP reporter Janey McCauley is reporting that Golden State Warriors officials are confirming to her that the video is indeed edited, and not real.
Many suspected this, especially in light of the fact that this time Steph didn't even really aim the long shots, but threw them casually, with a sideways shot - but here probably lies the greatest compliment to the talented basketball player: fans of the game know that if there is one person in the world who is capable of performing such miracles, it is Stephen Curry, the man who makes the impossible come true.
For example, Kerry provided an unforgettable video two years ago, in which he is seen hitting 105 consecutive shots (!) from three at the end of Golden State practice.
"It's not surprising," champion coach Steve Kerr said at the time, "he's the best scorer of all time."
This time, as mentioned, it is an edited video, but it is doubtful whether this detracts from its greatness.
