'Gotta fine-tune my routes': Steph Curry hits traffic on way to game
Steph Curry could use a few tips on navigating his commute to Chase Center from his new digs in Atherton.
The Golden State Warriors star arrived about a half-hour late to Thursday night's preseason game against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Chase Center in San Francisco.
"Same as any Bay Area resident ... gotta fine-tune my routes," Curry told The Athletic's Anthony Slater following the Warriors' 143-123 preseason drubbing of Minnesota.
Variety reported that the Currys quietly purchased an off-market home in June in Atherton — among the most exclusive and expensive zip codes in the Bay Area — for $31 million, more than anyone has paid for a house in the city since the start of 2019.
The Curry family had long resided in the East Bay, conveniently near Oracle Arena. It's no surprise they relocated across the Bay with the Warriors now playing at Chase Center in San Francisco.
According to Google Maps, the drive from Atherton to the city takes about 40 minutes without traffic. The big decision for Curry is going to be whether to take Highway 101 or Interstate 280. Highway 101, traveling along the bay, is more direct and a couple miles shorter, but more traffic prone.
Curry may have been late to work last night, but that didn't seem to affect him on the court — the Warriors star scored 40 points in just 25 minutes of work.
