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 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…
