Steph Curry picked a fellow Bay Area-based sports star as the latest guest for his YouTube series “5 Minutes From Home.”
Five-time Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky studies and trains at Stanford, about thirty-six miles south of Oracle Arena in Oakland. Ledecky appears in the episode along with Riley Morrison, who wrote to the Warriors star last year when she couldn’t find his sneakers in girls’ sizes (Curry quickly fixed the issue).
Ledecky agreed to push her sleep schedule a bit when Curry reached out: she attended a game and filmed with Curry and Morrison before an early wake-up for morning practice.
The series is centered around conversations between Curry and guests as they drive around the area and share a post-game meal (previous episodes have featured 76ers center Joel Embiid and Bay Area rapper E-40).
