MANILA, Philippines – Gian Mamuyac did something not many people can do: he blocked a 3-point attempt from two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry.
In videos posted on Twitter by ABS-CBN's TJ Manotoc as well as SLAM Philippines, the Batang Gilas member was seen defending the Golden State Warriors star during a scrimmage in Taiwan.
And as Curry dribbled it up then stepped back for his usual deadly triple, Mamuyac was right there for the rejection.
