Stephen Curry starred in Burger King ad as a kid

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — These days, Stephen Curry is one of the NBA’s biggest stars, and whatever he does off the court draws attention and eyeballs. Two decades ago? Not so much. Someone recently uncovered an old advertisement for Burger King which starred former Hornets guard Dell Curry. Back when this originally aired, his co-star at the time wasn’t such a big deal. In retrospect, that co-star turned out to be a kinda big deal: Stephen Curry.

Steph Curry interviews his dad, Dell

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last night’s Warriors/Hornets game in Charlotte was Dell Curry Night, a way for the Hornets to celebrate one of their franchise greats (as well as Steph Curry‘s father). Dell now works as an analyst on Hornets’ broadcasts, so it made sense for the Hornets’ pregame show to feature Dell interviewing his son, Steph. Except as you can see here, Steph clearly had other plans for this interview…

Sweet shooting runs in the Curry family

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We already know Stephen Curry is one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, and that Steph is the son of Dell Curry, another of the NBA’s greatest shooters. But maybe great shooting isn’t only genetic, perhaps there’s something to the “Curry” surname. Check out Stephen’s wife, Ayesha, here knocking down an NBA three-pointer, while 9 months pregnant, no less…

Steph Curry playing with Muggsy Bogues two decades ago

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — One of the fun things about Stephen Curry being the son of former NBA player Dell Curry, is that we occasionally come across pictures or video of a young Steph Curry, hanging around the NBA as a kid. Such as this Instagram video someone on Reddit uncovered, featuring a young Curry being carried around the Charlotte Hornets locker room by former point guard Muggsy Bogues

Dell Curry defends Steph and Riley Curry

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Not only did the Golden State Warriors win Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals last night, but during the postgame press conference, Steph Curry won over the internet by bringing along his daughter, Riley. While Curry calmly answered questions, Riley did everything from asking Steph to keep it down to crawling out from under the table and leaving the presser.

Cute, sure, until today, when a few reporters grumbled that players having kids on the podium made it hard to get their questions asked and answered. One person who disagreed? Steph’s dad and Riley’s grandfather, former NBA player Dell Curry. As Dell Curry told USA Today

“They’ll get over it,” he said. “He was still able to do his interview. She didn’t stop that at all.

“She’s was just waving to reporters. That’s just the way she is. She knows what’s happening. She knew she was on the stage and she knew people were talking to her daddy and she’s on his lap and she’s just like ‘Hey, how’s everybody?’ That’s just the way she is.”

By the way, Riley wasn’t new to this. Check out how she videobombed her Uncle Seth after a D-League game…

Stephen Curry trains for the Three-Point Shootout

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last night the participants were announced for the upcoming NBA All-Star Saturday, which includes the Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout. As expected, Golden State’s Stephen Curry is one of the participants. Curry is one of the best outside shooters in the NBA, but he’s somehow never won a Three-Point Shootout at All-Star Weekend. So rather than sit back and wait for another chance to fail, Curry decided to get in some practice with the help of Foot Locker, Robert Horry, Tim Legler, Steph’s Dad and a 10-year-old girl. He only loses once…

Stephen Curry shows NBA future as 14-year-old

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The first basketball camp I ever attended must have been when I was elementary or middle school. My family was vacationing one summer in the mountains of North Carolina, and I attended a nearby basketball day camp hosted by Brad Daugherty, who hailed from nearby Black Mountain and was, at the time, a young star for the Cleveland Cavaliers. One day Daugherty hosted a guest: Dell Curry, who had just been picked up by the Charlotte Hornets. Curry taught us about the fundamentals of shooting, but the main thing I remember is Curry putting on a shooting demonstration and basically not missing a shot. He went around and back the three-point arc draining shot after shot after shot.

So when you see Golden State’s Stephen Curry making shots today, do not be surprised. Or, you can watch this video that Sportando unearthed today that shows Steph and his brother Seth as kids, showing that they had hoops in their system even back then…
