Stephen Curry (Stephen Curry II), born March 14, 1988 in Akron, Ohio, was born in the same hospital as LeBron James, but spent most of his childhood in Charlotte.
Mom Sonya Curry, a former University of Virginia volleyball star, and Curry’s dad are college alumni who met and fell in love when they were students and later started a family.
Curry actually met everyone on TV when he was 9 years old when he and his dad did a Burger King commercial.
Since his father played for the Raptors in the 1999-2000 season, Curry, then only 11, followed him and moved from Charlotte to Toronto, Canada. 2001 saw Curry, then 13, start playing for the 8th grade varsity team at Queenslander Christian Academy when his younger brother Seth Curry was in 6th grade, so it’s safe to say this was the first team to have a true Splash Brother. The team, which used to have a winning percentage of less than 50%, hasn’t lost a single game since. What’s even scarier is Curry’s stats, as he blasted 40 points per game that season.
Curry attended Charlotte Christian Academy in high school and started out as a member of the second team basketball squad, but was promoted to the first team for outstanding performance, and then he played for the school as a captain.
Unlike today, when he wears the number 30 jersey, Curry wore the number 20 jersey in high school. And the No. 20 jersey was also the first jersey to be retired at Charlotte Christian High School. Curry said that in high school, he had hoped to wear the No. 30 jersey, but because the size of the No. 30 jersey is too large, had to choose the No. 20 jersey.
Like the coach said, most schools didn’t think Curry could handle the rivalry of college basketball and skipped right over him, including Duke, where he wanted to go so badly, and Virginia Tech, where his father had played, when Virginia wouldn’t give him a scholarship but would only offer him a position as a temporary player.
Curry eventually chose his hometown, Davidson College, which is where he began to be known by American fans. Davis College is a small college just 20 minutes from Curry’s home, with only 1,600 students on campus.
In his sophomore season, Curry once again led the Southern Conference in scoring, averaging 25.5 points per game, a mark that ranked fifth in Division I scoring, while he also averaged 4.7 rebounds per game to go along with 2.8 assists.
Due to an unsatisfactory schedule Davidson College started the season with 4-6 losses, but then went on a 25-game winning streak, including a 19-0 record against Southern Conference teams, which made them the No. 7 seed in the NCAA nation and the Wildcats set the best record in college history.
He also lost by just two points against Kansas in the Elite 8. Curry hit his 159th 3-pointer of the season, setting an NCAA single-season record for 3-pointers, and he became the fourth player ever to score 30 points in each of the first four games of an NCAA elimination game. Despite this outstanding performance, he announced that he would not enter the NBA draft and continue to play his junior season.
With excellent personal performance, he announced his participation in the 2009 NBA draft, when the authoritative draft site had said, “Curry’s body even in the point guard is very thin, he is at a great disadvantage on the defensive end, he is not a point guard that NBA teams can rely on to break down the defense in the block are very difficult, but also often make stupid mistakes. ”
Curry’s nicknames are many, Moe God, baby face killer, Ku Ritian, schoolboy, chef curry chef curry, and so on, he himself said his favorite nickname is baby face killer. About his baby face, a lot of interesting things have happened. Once he and his wife went to a pizza store to buy beer, the salesman actually asked Curry to show his ID. Because the U.S. law states that people under 21 years old are not allowed to buy alcohol or drink.
Curry and his wife, Ayesha, met at a youth church event attended by both parents when Curry was 15 and Ayesha was 14. But it wasn’t until after Curry played at Davidson that he worked up the courage to send his first message to Ayesha, who is also an alumna, on Facebook, after which the relationship grew rapidly and was eventually established.

In addition to being the best basketball player in the world, Curry is also a good golfer. Curry played golf all through high school, and he played on the varsity golf team at Charlotte Christian School for three years. After the Warriors won the championship, Curry was also invited to play golf with President Barack Obama.
Curry does not look fierce and strong, even a little thin, and ordinary people are no different. Even his best shot we ordinary people can master, so some people think Curry is not considered a superstar, just now the environment suits him.
But that’s actually underestimating his talent and effort. Shouldn’t it be more proof of his greatness that he played so well and developed his shooting to a new level, despite his lack of physical fitness, that the average person feels he can change the game by practicing his dribbling and shooting?
