Stephen Curry Inspired By His Dad Dell, Making Fullcourt Shots

New, 2 comments

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry can shoot. No doubt about it. He learned about it from his dad, Dell. Dell was a great bench player who came out and provided instant offense. He was particularly proficient for the Charlotte Hornets, where he was a constant Sixth Man candidate (winning it once in 1994), averaging 11 points per game for his career and an incredibly efficient 40% from three point land.

Stephen’s current career averages with the Warriors? 18 points per game, 43% from three point land. Safe to say he’s learning a lot from watching his dad.

I wonder how much it helped him with making this incredible fullcourt shot in practice.

It makes sense that the NBA would incorporate him into their “Where Amazing Happens” marketing campaign, which showcases a young Stephen shooting with his dad before one of his father’s games, and a young Warriors fan coming back from the future to tell him about the future.

Goosebumps.
