Jedi Training

“Faubert says that the better you get at the visual tracking, the more mental space you free up. Think back to when you first started driving a car, he likes to say: Trying to talk with your mom while operating the wheel and the accelerator could trigger a panic attack. But once you get used to tracking your speed and that of other cars, driving is a casual affair — you might listen to music or talk on the phone or, God forbid, text. Watching Curry over the last few seasons, that’s what it looks like is going on: The more he’s mastering multiple stimuli, the slower the game gets in his brain, the faster he’s able to solve whatever riddle the defense is giving him. And the shots keep falling.”
