Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry hasn't quit his day job, but he does have a new occupation.

Curry is teaching an online basketball class for MasterClass.

The course has a $90 enrollment fee for an individual class and is $180 for a year of all access to classes.

Curry teaches ball handling, shooting techniques, offensive creativity, ball screens, balance and finishing, among other skills.

"Growing up I was always the littlest guy on my team," Curry said in a Twitter video posted Thursday by MasterClass. "Even now I think I still am. You don't listen to what anybody says you can't do, because you know that you can."

Curry also gave a brief insight into his shooting technique. He said he locates where the net meets the rim while eyeing those deep 3-pointers.

"Being able to shoot is all about becoming a more complete and confident ball handler," Curry said in the Twitter video. "To maximize the quickest possible release for you, lock in on the path the ball takes from your catch-ready position to your final release point. So that's how you can shoot the same, whether it's in the paint or all the way out to the deep three area and knock it down."

The package comes with a shot tracker, class workbook and more than 15 video lessons.

Curry, 29, is averaging 25.2 points, 6.7 assists and 4.7 rebounds this season. He is shooting a career-low 38 percent from 3-point range.
