Stephen Curry is the NBA’s ‘Golden Boy’. He is now a four-time NBA champion and a former MVP with multiple all-star selections. However, the ‘baby-faced assassin‘ didn’t become one of the NBA’s greats through sheer luck. He put in countless hours of blood, sweat, and tears to hone his skills to become one of NB’s greatest shooters of all time. However, he was lucky enough to be born into an NBA family. His father was an ex-NBA player (1964-1980) who has always been with his son every step of the way.

Even Stephen Curry’s mother ensured that Stephen Curry’s stamina kept improving with her ‘two-week boot camps’. Dell Curry and his wife have been in the world of basketball since the 1950s, consistently staying up to date with everything from the NBA to international basketball.

This allowed Stephen Curry and Seth Curry to have the benefit of getting ‘NBA ready’ from a very young age. So, it’s no surprise that Curry’s NBA teammates like Andre Iguodala would ask Dell Curry for on or off-the-court advice too.
