“Steph Curry is amazing,” he said. “I was at a game right here in Washington D.C., when they were playing the Wizards, and it was unbelievable. He was taking shots from a couple of feet past half court, and he missed, like, one out of 15. I mean, it was amazing.”

Fauci also named Bob Cousy, Mickey Mantle, Max Scherzer and Mia Hamm.
