View Full Version : Great write-up on...
...the Curry family. Steph and Dell mostly, with cameos from Seth and Sonya, along with Gerald Henderson. Best thing I've read on ESPN in a long time.

"They don't want an autograph really, they just want to congratulate me or know how I'm feeling," the son says, citing the fans who approached him in the store a few moments ago.
"I just tell them, 'It's good to be home.'"
When Curry was drafted by the Warriors as the seventh overall pick last June, the 22-year-old realized that he'd be living 2,700 miles from the only home he'd ever known. Curry grew up in Charlotte and went to college 22 miles away in Davidson, N.C. He is a self-described homebody, thanks in large part to the environs created by his parents, Dell and Sonya, who met while student-athletes at Virginia Tech.
Then Stephen Jackson, who Curry had relied on for advice in transitioning to the pros, was traded to Charlotte. Curry's insecurities began manifesting themselves in his reluctance to control the game on the court.
Curry says he tries to emulate the play of Steve Nash and has become close with Chris Paul, who's represented by the same agency. He called Paul several times throughout the season for advice and will likely attend Paul's basketball camp this summer.
So its final, we sign Chris Paul in 2012 and Steph a year later? Sounds good.

I would love to go after curry. It is a long time from now though. Wish there was some way to make a trade but even the warriors aren't that stupid. If his stock takes a dive at some point I trade for him for sure though.
