Stephen Curry is an American basketball player who currently plays for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Curry, widely recognized as one of the best basketball players of all time and the greatest shooter in NBA history, is credited with altering the sport by motivating teams and players to use the three-point shot on a regular basis.
He has been named the NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP) twice and has won three NBA championships. He is an eight-time NBA All-Star and eight-time All-NBA selection, including four times on the first team.
Curry is Sonya and Dell Curry’s son. His father was a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers and he was born at Summa Akron City Hospital in Akron, Ohio. He grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, where his father played for the Charlotte Hornets for the most of his NBA career.
Curry and his younger brother Seth were frequently taken to Dell’s games, where they would shoot with the Hornets during warm-ups. The family moved to Toronto for a short time, where Dell ended his basketball career with the Raptors.
Curry was a member of the Queensway Christian College boys’ basketball team at the time, and he helped them achieve an undefeated season. He was also a part of Toronto 5–0, an Ontario-based club team, pitting him against Cory Joseph and Kelly Olynyk, two future NBA players. Curry coached the squad to a 33–4 record and the regional championship.
Curry enrolled at Charlotte Christian School after Dell’s retirement, where he was named all-conference and all-state and led his team to three conference titles and three state tournament appearances.
Curry intended to play collegiate basketball for Virginia Tech because of his father’s legendary career there, but he was only allowed a walk-on place due to his tiny 160-pound stature. He eventually chose Davidson College, which had relentlessly recruited him since he was in ninth school.
