Stephen Curry is a basketball player for the Golden State Warriors in the NBA.
Many people think Stephen Curry is the best shooter and one of the best players ever. He changed basketball by making teams and players shoot more three-pointers. He won the NBA championship four times, got named NBA Most Valuable Player twice, and was the best player in the NBA Finals. He was also the best player in the NBA All-Star Game once, was picked for the All-Star Game nine times, and made it to the All-NBA team nine times, including four times on the top team.
Early life and career
Stephen Curry, son of NBA veteran Dell Curry, learned basketball from his dad. Despite being overlooked by major college programs due to his slender build and average height, he went to Davidson College with fewer than 2,000 students. There, he made a big impact, averaging 21.5 points per game as a freshman and becoming famous during his sophomore year when he led Davidson to the Elite Eight with his signature three-point shots. In his junior year, he was the country’s top scorer with 28.6 points per game and earned All-American honors. In 2009, he was drafted by the Warriors as the seventh overall pick in the NBA draft.
Curry quickly became the starting point guard for the Warriors, averaging 17.5 points per game in his first season. Ankle injuries limited his games in the 2011–12 season, leading to surgery. He signed a four-year, $44 million extension, and in 2012–13, he led the league in three-pointers. The next season, he repeated the feat and became an All-Star. In 2014–15, Curry broke records with 286 three-pointers, won the MVP, and led the Warriors to a championship. In 2015–16, he led the team to a historic 73-9 record, averaging 30.1 points per game, and became the first unanimous MVP. However, they lost the NBA finals despite a 3–1 lead.
During the 2016–17 season, Curry made the most three-pointers (324) in the NBA for the fifth year in a row. The Warriors, once again, had the most wins in the NBA with 67. In the playoffs, they won 12 games in a row, which had never happened before. They did lose one game in the NBA finals but then came back strong to win the championship in five games against the Cavaliers. This was Curry’s second NBA title.
In the 2017–18 season, a knee injury limited Curry to 51 games, ending his five-year reign as the leader in three-pointers. He returned during the playoffs, helping the Warriors win their fourth straight conference championship and third NBA title. In 2018–19, he had a great season and led the Warriors to their fifth consecutive conference title, but they lost to the Raptors in the finals. In 2019–20, Curry played just five games due to a hand injury, and the team struggled. In 2020–21, he had a fantastic season but missed the playoffs. In December 2021, Curry broke the NBA record for career three-pointers. In 2021–22, with Thompson back, the Warriors won 53 games, dominated the playoffs, and won their fourth title during Curry’s era, with Curry as the finals MVP.
