Steph was averaging 3 turnovers per game and he had an agreement with his mom. The agreement was that he had to pay his mom a hundred dollars for every turnover after 3. Interestingly enough, although Steph was paying his mom a few hundred dollars at first, it slowly turned into thousands!

As the season came to an end, Curry paid his mom almost 7 thousand for his turnovers. Despite being one of the best players in the league, it seems Stephen Curry still pays the fine to his mom. “Yeah. The cheque stopped cashing a few years ago. She still calls it out for sure“, said the 4 time NBA champion.

How many turnovers did Stephen Curry average this season?

Although Stephen Curry led his team to a fantastic NBA title win during the 2021-22 season, he had a lot of turnovers this season. Curry turned it over 206 times for this season.
