Stephen Curry is the NBA’s highest-paid player. His ability to hit 3 pointers almost at will with astounding success has seen a change in the way Basketball is played. He has amassed a huge fortune and owns a load of cars and houses. Let’s take a look at the 32-year old’s family
Curry is the son of former NBA player Dell who played for the Charlotte Hornets for ten seasons. He and his family moved back to the state of North Carolina post his retirement. It was here that he first laid eyes on Ayesha Alexander. She was born in Toronto and moved to North Carolina aged 14 where she met her future husband at a church youth group in 2002. They cited their Christian faith as what keeps them grounded in their respective careers.
