Stephen Curry (March 14, 1988 - ) born Wardell Stephen Curry II, led the nation in scoring with a 28.6 point per game average as a senior at Davidson College in 2008-09 and earned his second of two Southern Conference Player of the Year awards. Likely due to his smaller stature, Steph was not flush with college scholarships despite being named all state, all-conference and team MVP as he led his Charlotte Christian School team to three conference titles and three state playoff appearances. Curry attended Davidson College where he finished second in the nation, behind Texas’ Kevin Durant, in freshman scoring while leading the Wildcats to a 29-5 record. He then earned Consensus All-American Second and First Team selections in his sophomore and junior seasons, respectively. He led Davidson to the school’s first NCAA Tournament win since 1969 as the Wildcats beat Gonzaga in the 2008 NCAA Tournament first round. Following his junior year success, Steph declared himself eligible for the NBA Draft and the Golden State Warriors selected the shooting guard with the seventh overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft. He impressed in his first season, scoring 1,399 points including finishing sixth in 3-point shooting and earning a 2009-10 NBA All-Rookie First Team selection.
He has played his entire career with Golden State (2009-present). He has played in four NBA All-Star Games and won the 2015 NBA Three-Point Shootout Championship at All-Star weekend. He is a two-time NCA chanmpion (2015 & 2017), and in 2014-15 and 2015-2016, Stephen Curry was named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player. Internationally, Curry won FIBA gold medals with the United States Men’s National Team at the 2010 World Championships in Turkey, and 2014 World Championships in Spain. Stephen is the son of former NBA shooting guard/small forward Dell Curry.
