“He always wanted to make sure his teammates were involved”

The 2022 NBA playoffs are underway with Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors taking on the Memphis Grizzlies in the Western Conference semifinals. Steph’s father, Dell Curry, expressed his support for his son, complimenting him for being a team player ever since he was a teenager.

Before the Warriors faced the Grizzlies in Game 2 on Tuesday night, Dell was interviewed by NBC Sports Bay Area. The former player shared how Steph was already an unselfish player in high school and how it translated to his success in the league, stating:

“He’s carried that trait ever since high school. He always wanted to make sure his teammates were involved, probably too much so in high school. We had to get on him to be more selfish with the ball.”

Dell Curry added that Steph was even given a full reign at Davidson, but retained his unselfish nature. He entered the NBA in 2009 after getting drafted seventh overall by the Warriors. Dell said:

“They gave him the keys to the bus, but he still didn’t take advantage of that. He made sure all his teammates were involved and made sure that they understood how important they were to his game, and I think that’s a skill set he’s brought to the NBA, being that leader on and off the floor.”

Steph Curry was already a two-time MVP and one-time champion when he took a backseat to Kevin Durant from 2016 to 2019. Two more titles later and Steph is still looking for more. The Warriors have a legitimate shot at winning their fourth championship.
