NBA superstar is unrecognizable in Grinch Christmas costume

Stephen Curry isn't stealing basketballs this winter — instead, he's stealing Christmas. 

Just ahead of the winter holiday, the Golden State Warriors guard posted a photo on Instagram of his intricate Grinch costume that has left him totally unrecognizable. 

"Christmas with the Currys!" the three-time NBA champion captioned a slideshow of photos, which also included his wife, Ayesha, who dressed up as Cindy Lou Who, another character from the famous Dr. Seuss stories. 


The costumes served a larger purpose besides bringing Halloween vibes to Christmas. "Christmas with the Currys" is an annual event hosted by the family that has now hit its seventh year. 

According to Curry's foundation, this year's event was able to bring gifts to over 500 Oakland-area families. He posted several photos from the day on social media, as well: 


The Curry family going all-out with costumes is nothing new. Despite suffering a broken hand the day before Halloween, Curry still pulled off a perfectly executed group costume with his wife and three children. The family of five dressed up as characters from the "Toy Story" movies, with Curry's Buzz Lightyear get-up even utilizing his injured hand. 

Curry has been sidelined from the Warriors since Oct. 30 but was recently able to rejoin the team to continue his injury rehab.

    Boris Johnson will have an international scandal on his hands if he continues to throw EU citizens under the bus

    When Boris Johnson brought back his Brexit bill to this new majority-Conservative parliament, the debate shifted from whether the UK would leave the European Union to what kind of country we will become when we do.No longer having to court the votes of moderate MPs, Johnson is now trying to strip away the commitments he made. Gone are the pledges not to water down workers’ rights and environmental standards. Gone is the commitment to reunite unaccompanied refugee children with their families. Gone is Johnson’s promise to automatically guarantee in law the rights of EU citizens living in the UK.

    Prince Andrew 'has become the Queen’s rock' during Megxit

    The Duke of York has become the Queen's "rock" following the announcement that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be stepping back from the royal family, royal insiders have revealed.The disgraced royal joined Her Majesty at St Mary the Virgin church in Norfolk to attend a Sunday service and a senior royal source told the Sun: "Andrew has been talking to her constantly on the phone and has now gone up to stay with her for a few days."He obviously has spare time on his hands but he would have been there as a shoulder to cry on anyway."He sees a lot of the Queen at Windsor, probably more than any other royal, and he is her rock at the moment."Behind the scenes we are talking about a family falling apart and Andrew is doing his best to shore things up.【ギャラリー】Queen attends church in Norfolk14"He may be finished in the eyes of the public but he feels it is his duty to support the Queen and Prince Philip and get them through this ordeal.""It has taken him a while but he has finally realised what a fool he has been and he is beside himself with remorse."He knows he has let the Queen and the monarchy down and it's going to be very difficult for him to regain the public's respect."He wants to do as much as he can to make it up to his mother."Both Prince Charles and Prince William have told him there is no way back for the time being."If he hadn't made such a dreadful mistake he would now be a leading senior royal helping the Queen and stepping into many of the causes and patronages that Harry and Meghan will probably abandon."But as things stand he can only take a backseat role."Despite his failings he is immensely loyal and a team player, as he was in the Navy."He is a proud father and he would like his daughters Bea and Eugenie to take up some of the royal slack, but that doesn't seem to fit in with Charles's desire for a slimmed down monarchy."Andrew thinks his daughters could do a superb job with the day to day stuff and the Queen is very fond of them, but the levers of power are shifting."
