Wardell Stephen "Steph" Curry II (born March 14, 1988)[1] is an American professional basketball point guard with the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Curry is listed at 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) and 185 lb (84 kg).[2] He is the son of former NBA player, Dell Curry.

Curry played college basketball for the Wildcats of Davidson College. Curry was twice named Southern Conference Player of the Year and set the all-time scoring record for both Davidson and the Southern Conference. He also set school career records for three-point field goals, free throws, 30-point games, 40-point games, and set a single season NCAA record for three-pointers made.[3]

Curry was selected with the 7th pick in the first round by the Golden State Warriors in the 2009 NBA Draft.[4] In the 2012–13 season, Curry set the NBA record for three-pointers made in a regular season with 272 made three pointers.

Early life

Curry was born in Akron, Ohio but grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina while his father, Dell, played for the Charlotte Hornets. As a child, Curry attended a Christian Montessori school that had been started by his mother, Sonya, a former volleyball standout.[5]

Curry attended Charlotte Christian School where he was named all-state, all-conference, and led his team to three conference titles and three state playoff appearances. Despite the success he had in high school, the then-6-foot (1.8 m), 160-pound senior did not receive any scholarship offers from major-conference schools. Since his father played for Virginia Tech and is in their Hall of Fame, Curry wanted to play for the Hokies, but they only offered him a place as a walk-on player.[6] After receiving scholarship offers from Davidson, VCU, and Winthrop,[7] he chose to attend Davidson, a school that had not won an NCAA Tournament game since 1969.

College career

Freshman season

Before he even played one college game, head coach Bob McKillop said at a Davidson alumni event, "Wait 'til you see Steph Curry. He is something special."[8] In his first collegiate game, against Eastern Michigan University, Curry finished with a respectable 15 points but committed 13 turnovers. In the next game, against the University of Michigan, he scored 32 points, dished out 4 assists, and grabbed 9 rebounds. Curry finished the season leading the Southern Conference in scoring with 21.5 points per game. He was second in the nation among freshmen in scoring, behind only Texas' Kevin Durant. Curry's scoring ability helped the Wildcats to a 29–5 overall record and a Southern Conference regular season title. On March 2, 2007, in the Southern Conference semi-finals, against Furman University, Curry made his 113th three-pointer of the year breaking the NCAA freshman season record for 3-point field goals made previously held by Keydren Clark of St. Peter's.[9]

Curry eclipsed the school freshman scoring record with his 502nd point against University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on February 6, 2007.[10] On March 15, 2007, Davidson marched into the NCAA tournament as a 13 seed set to play the University of Maryland and even though Davidson lost 82–70, he was the game's leading scorer with 30 points.[11] At the end of his freshman season, Curry was named Southern Conference Freshman of the Year, SoCon Tournament MVP, and selected to the SoCon All-tournament team, All-freshman team, and first team All-SoCon. He was also honorable mention in Sports Illustrated's All-Mid-Major. After the season ended, he was selected for the USA team to appear at the 2007 FIBA U19 World Championships in Novi Sad, Serbia in which he averaged 9.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.2 assists in 19.4 minutes a game.

Sophomore season

Curry at the 2008 NCAA Tournament.

In his sophomore season, Curry had grown to his adult height of 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m) and again led the Southern Conference in scoring, averaging 25.5 points per game while adding 4.7 rebounds per game and 2.8 assists per game. His scoring and leadership led the Wildcats to a 26–6 regular season record, and a 20–0 conference record. As a result, Davidson earned its third straight NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship Tournament bid.

On March 21, 2008, Davidson matched up with seventh seeded Gonzaga. Gonzaga lead by eleven points early in the second half but Curry went on to score 30 points in the half[12] to push Davidson to their first NCAA Tournament win since 1969, 82–76. Curry ended the game with 40 points while also going 8-for-10 from 3-point range.[13] On March 23, Davidson played second seeded Georgetown in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Georgetown entered the game as a heavy favorite after an appearance in the Final Four in 2007 and holding a number eight national ranking. Curry was held to only five points in the first half of the game, and his team trailed by 17 points at that point but in the second half Curry scored 25 points, to lead Davidson to a 74–70 win.[12]

On March 28, 2008, Curry led Davidson to another win against third-seeded Wisconsin. Curry scored 33 points as Davidson won 73–56 to advance to the Elite 8 for the first time since 1969.[14] Curry joined Clyde Lovellette, Jerry Chambers, and Glenn Robinson as the only college players to score over 30 points in their first four career NCAA tournament games.[14] Curry also tied Darrin Fitzgerald of Butler for the single-season record for most three-pointers with 158.[15][16] On March 30, 2008, he set the record, against the Kansas Jayhawks, with his 159th three-pointer of the season. Curry scored 25 points in the game but Davidson lost, and was knocked out of the tournament, to the top-seeded and eventual national champion Jayhawks 59–57.[17]

Curry finished the season averaging 25.9 points, 2.9 assists, and 2.1 steals per game. He was named to the Associated Press' All-America Second Team on March 31, 2008.[18] He also was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Midwest Region of the 2008 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship Tournament, becoming the first player from a team not making the Final Four to do so since Juwan Howard of Michigan in 1994.[19] Curry was nominated for an ESPY in the Breakthrough Player of the Year category.[20]

Junior season

After Davidson's loss in the NCAA Regional Finals against Kansas, Curry announced that he would return for his junior year.[15] Curry stated he wanted to develop as a point guard as that would be his most likely position in the NBA. On November 18, 2008, Curry scored a career-high 44 points in Davidson's 82–78 loss to Oklahoma.[21] He extended a career-long streak by scoring at least 25 points for the seventh straight game.[21] On November 21, Curry registered a career-high 13 assists, to go along with 30 points, in Davidson's 97–70 win over Winthrop.[22] He was held scoreless in a 78–48 win over Loyola on November 25. Loyola double-teamed Curry and it was the first time he failed to score and only his second collegiate game without double digits.[23] In Davidson's next game (11 days later) Curry matched his career-high of 44 in a 72–67 win over North Carolina State.

Curry surpassed the 2000-point mark for his career on January 3, 2009, as he scored 21 points against Samford; he had accomplished this feat in just his 83rd career game.[24] February 14, 2009, Curry rolled his ankle in the second half of a win over Furman University. The injury caused Curry to miss the February 18 game against The Citadel, and was the first and only game he missed in his college career.[25] On February 28, 2009, Stephen became Davidson's all time leading scorer after he scored 34 points in a 99–56 win against Georgia Southern. That gave Curry 2,488 points for his career surpassing previous school leader John Gerdy.[26] Davidson won the 2008-09 Southern Conference regular season championship for the south division, finishing 18-2 in the conference.[27][28]

In the 2009 Southern Conference Tournament, Davidson played Appalachian State in the quarterfinals and won 84-68. Curry scored 43 points, which is the third most points in Southern Conference tournament history.[29] In the semifinals, against the College of Charleston, Curry had 20 points but Davidson lost 52-59. Despite lobbying from Davidson head coach Bob McKillop and Charleston coach Bobby Cremins,[30] the Wildcats failed to get a NCAA bid. Instead, they received the sixth seed in the 2009 NIT. Davidson played the third seed, South Carolina, on the road in the first round. Curry scored 32 points as the Wildcats beat the Gamecocks 70-63.[31][32] Davidson would then fall 68-80 to the Saint Mary's Gaels in the second round. Curry registered 26 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists in what was his final game for the Wildcats.[33]

He finished his final season at Davidson averaging 28.6 points, 5.6 assists, and 2.5 steals. He was the NCAA scoring leader and was named a consensus first team All-American.[34] Although he opted out of his senior year at Davidson, Curry stated that he still planned to earn his degree.[35]

NBA career

Golden State Warriors (2009–present)

2009–10 season

The Golden State Warriors selected Curry with the seventh overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. He subsequently signed a four-year, $12.7 million contract in July 2009.[36] Curry made his NBA regular season debut on October 28, 2009 in the Warriors' 2009–10 season opener against the Houston Rockets. He started the game and finished with 14 points, seven assists, four steals and two turnovers in 36 minutes of play.[37]

On February 10, 2010, Curry got his first career triple-double in his career with 36 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds, including 7-of-11 from 3-point range. On April 7, 2010, Curry recorded 27 points, 14 assists, 8 rebounds and 7 steals as Don Nelson set a new NBA record for career coaching wins with 1,333.

Curry was a contender for the 2009–2010 NBA Rookie of the Year Award, but ended up finishing second behind Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans. He was one of the three unanimous selections to the 2010 All-Rookie First Team, alongside Evans and Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks. Curry averaged 17.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists, and 1.9 steals for the season.[38][39]

2010–11 season

Curry averaged 18.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.5 steals on the season.[40] During the 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend, he won the Skills Challenge. Curry led the NBA in free-throw percentage and set a new Warriors single-season record by shooting 93.4%, passing Rick Barry's previous mark of 92.4%. Curry was also the recipient of the 2010-11 NBA Sportsmanship Award. [41]

2011–12 season

In May 2011, Curry had surgery on his right ankle to repair torn ligaments he got from multiple sprains during the 2010-11 season.[42] Curry was ready to play by the start of the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season with his new head coach Mark Jackson[43] but he sprained his surgically repaired right ankle during an exhibition game at Sacramento just days before the season started.[44] He still started the season opener vs. the Clippers, but only had 4 points on 2-12 shooting. The next game vs. the Chicago Bulls, Curry had 21 points and 10 assists to lead the Warriors to a 99-91 victory, but rolled his right ankle and missed the next game. He came back for 3 games and sprained his right ankle yet again on January 4.[45] He returned January 20 for the next 16 games before he strained a tendon in his right foot in a game vs. the Phoenix Suns on February 22.[46] On March 5, Curry returned vs. the Washington Wizards for 4 games before he had season ending arthroscopic surgery on his right ankle. The injury plagued season ended with Curry seeing action in only 26 of 66 games with averages of 14.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.5 steals.[47][48]

2012–13 season

Despite another right ankle problem during the pre-season, Curry signed a 4 year $44 million contract extension before the 2012-13 season started.[42] Curry luckily had no major injury issues as he played in 78 of the 82 games and averaged 22.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.9 assists, and 1.6 steals for the season.

On February 27, 2013, Curry scored a career-high 54 points as the Warriors lost to the Knicks, 109-105. He shot 18 for 28 from the field, and 11 of 13 from three-point range. His 11 three pointers is a single-game franchise-record.[49] His 11 three-pointers made trails only the 12 made threes by Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall for most threes made in a single game in NBA history.[50] On the final day of the regular season, Curry broke the NBA record for three pointers made in a single regular season. Curry finished the season with 272 made three pointers; three more than previous record holder Ray Allen.[51]

Golden State finished 47–35, earning the sixth seed in the 2013 NBA Playoffs and a matchup with the three seeded Denver Nuggets in the first round.[52] This was the first playoff series for Curry and many of his teammates[53] but Golden State beat Denver in six games to advance to the semifinals to face the San Antonio Spurs. Curry had a playoff career-high 44 points in Game 1 of the series but the Warriors ended up blowing a 16-point lead late in the fourth quarter which resulted in a double-overtime loss. Golden State would go on to lose to the eventual Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs in six games.

2013–14 season

At Oracle Arena, April 6, 2014

Curry made his first All-Star appearance after he was voted by the fans as a starter for the Western Conference.[54] He finished the season averaging 24.0 points and 8.5 assists; both career bests.

The Golden State Warriors finished with a 51-31 record and was the 6th seed in the Western Conference once again. They would face the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round. On April 27, 2014, in game four of the series, Curry scored 33 points, including a playoff career-high seven three-pointers, as the Warriors beat the Clippers 118-97 in the midst of the Donald Sterling controversy.[55] Curry and the Warriors would go on to lose to the Clippers in 7 games. He was named to the All-NBA Second Team for the first time.

International career

Curry was a member of the United States men's national basketball team that won a gold medal at the 2010 FIBA World Championship, and was also named to the team in 2014.
