Stephen Curry is an American professional basketball player who represents the ‘Golden State Warriors’ in ‘NBA.’ The first child of Dell Curry, who is considered one of the best 3-point shooters in ‘NBA’ history, Stephen has been named the greatest shooter by many players as well as analysts. He has won the 'NBA Most Valuable Player Award' twice in a row, including one unanimous win, a first in ‘NBA’ history. He led the ‘Warriors’ to their first championship in four decades, and also helped his team break the record for the most wins in an ‘NBA’ season. He earned the ‘Southern Conference Player of the Year’ title twice by setting an all-time scoring record for both ‘Davidson’ and the ‘Southern Conference.’ He also set the ‘NCAA’ record for most three-pointers made in a season during his second year in college. Renowned for his shooting skills, he holds the ‘NBA’ record for most three-pointers made in a regular season, a record that he himself broke twice. He and his teammate, Klay Thompson, are known by the nickname ‘Splash Brothers’ for their record-breaking combined three-pointers in a season.
He was born on the 14th of March 1988 in Akron Ohio to Sonya and Dell Curry. His father was an NBA player as well, so he lived wherever his father played. He spent the majority of his childhood in Charlotte with a brief spell in Toronto. He attended Charlotte Christian School where he led his team to several conference titles and state playoff appearances. He ended up going to Davidson College where he lit up the March Madness Tournament in his junior year, garnering a large amount of NBA interest.
In the 2009 NBA Draft, he was selected 7th overall by the Golden State Warriors which was a franchise changing decision. He would go on to become the franchise’s greatest ever player, cementing him as a legend in San Francisco.
Steph Curry has had a great career spanning 12 years staying loyal to the team that drafted him. He won his first MVP and Championship with The Golden State Warriors in 2015 which was just the beginning of his rise. In 2016 he won the first ever unanimous MVP, leading his team to the best ever regular season record with a 73-9 record which eclipsed the famous 96’ Bulls Team. After the tough loss to the Cavs in the 2016 finals, the Warriors added the then free agent, Kevin Durant, to their roster which started the Warriors Dynasty. Steph won back to back rings in 2017 and 2018, just losing out to the Toronto Raptors in 2019. With Steph in the prime of his career, he will be looking to add another ring to his collection.
