WATCH 10-Year-Old Jaden Newman Out-Shoot Stephen Curry [VIDEO]

Dating back to his days at Davidson University, Stephen Curry has been recognized as one of the most accurate shooters in all of basketball.

Golden State’s sniper is headlining the All-Star game’s 3-point contest, and while I’m sure he doesn’t really need the help, Kenny Mayne, Foot Locker and Under Armour have partnered to prepare him for the event.

In their “The Redemption” YouTube series, the trio pit Curry against several would-be-challengers. Steph had no trouble dispatching 4 of his opponents, but the fifth match-up — with 10-year-old basketball prodigy Jaden Newman — was surprisingly exciting.


I know this wasn’t exactly fought on even ground. Not the point.

Jaden might have shot from the high-school 3-point line AND had more time than Steph, but she’s 10 years old.

And a girl.

I think that still counts as a win.
