While Israeli basketball fans are overwhelmingly pulling for Cleveland Cavalier coach David Blatt to prevail in the NBA Finals, his biggest foe also has a connection - albeit indirect - to Judaism.
Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry sports a tattoo in Hebrew of a biblical verse. According to Sport 5 TV, Curry's mom had been studying Hebrew for four years.
"It's our [his and his wife's] favorite Bible verse," Curry told Sport 5.
The 2015 MVP told Sport 5 that he and his wife have matching tattoos that read, "Love never failed to be." The verse was taken from First Corinthians, 13:8.
Asked if he can pronounce it in Hebrew, he said "I can't. I'm working on it."
The Warriors and Cavs will face off Tuesday night in Game 3 of their best-of-seven series.
