Worlds collide as TSM members Ali ‘Myth‘ Kabbani and Darryle ‘Hamlinz‘ Hamlin talk about the NBA, streaming, Fortnite and esports with Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry.

Fortnite has been an epidemic of sorts in the sports world as you see many professional athletes talking about and playing the battle royale. 

It’s pretty hard to go out in public without seeing a Fortnite reference somewhere whether it’s somebody doing a dance or just talking about it among friends.

One of the most interesting things to come out of the Fortnite hype is seeing  top-tier athletes and popular gaming personalities interacting with each other as they explain how their respective professions work.

Fortnite pros Myth and Hamlinz recently got together with NBA superstar Steph Curry to chat about streaming and Epic Game’s shooter as they headed to one of Curry’s favorite spots to eat.

Steph Curry has a solid video games background

First things first, Steph Curry is not a fan of Fortnite.

“I’m terrible at Fortnite,” Curry said. “God awful. I love any golf game. When it comes to 2K, Madden, Tiger Woods had his old game I loved to play.”

Unsurprisingly, the NBA star likes to play a lot of sports games but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t play other games either.

“Call of Duty was one, I had a lot of spare time before I got married, before I had kids.”

For those wondering, his favorite Call of Duty title is the first Modern Warfare.

Twitter: MythMyth is one of the most popular Fortnite streamers on Twitch.

Myth and Hamlinz break down how streaming isn’t as easy as it looks

A common misconception of streaming is people think all you do is sit down and play video games for hours a day, which by itself could be tiring.

Hamlinz had the perfect analogy that he used to explain what it’s really like.

“The best way I think about it man is just driving a car for 15 hours but on top of that you have to be entertaining and funny,” Hamlinz said.

Streamers can become seriously burnt out if they stream for long hours each day. Myth and Hamlinz both mentioned they stream seven days a week.

Obviously, the NBA and streaming are two completely different professions but it was interesting to still see the two sides discuss the similarities and differences.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
