Representing the Golden State Warriors in NBA, Stephen Curry is an American professional basketball player renowned for his shooting accuracy.
The son of Dell Curry, one of the best 3-point shooters in NBA history, Stephen’s impressive skills were first noticed at national level when he led Davidson Wildcats to their first NCAA Tournament since 1969.
After he was selected by the Golden State Warriors, Curry became the leading three-pointer scorer and helped his team win 24 consecutive matches. On top of all this, in 2016 he was the first person to be named MVP by unanimous vote in NBA history, and one of the 11 players to win the MVP award in two consecutive seasons. His mother might be the one behind his success as she fines him 100$ every time he commits four turnovers.
Curry is also extremely active in charity work, donating money to help combat malaria.
