Stephen Curry is one of the best three point shooters of all time, but his path to greatness was not easy. I recently read a book about amazing players and what they had to rise above to become superstars. Here’s Steph’s story. Curry grew up with a great life going to his dad’s NBA games. Stephen loved playing basketball too. He was very small but didn’t let that bother him. He kept working on his three-point shot till he mastered it. Stephen’s brother Seth Curry said Stephen would be in the driveway all night til he got an amazing form. When Curry was looking for a college to go to he tried his dad’s school, Virginia Tech. His dad was a legend there, but they said he would not get a lot of playing time because he was small and they already had a lot of skill on their squad. Steph did not like that. Curry went to Davidson. He led his team to the elite eight there. He was dominating. Steph knew he was ready to follow his father’s footsteps in the NBA. He was drafted by the Warriors where he has won a championship and an NBA MVP trophy.  Who knows, he might still win a few more titles. Steph Curry is a great example of how you should never give up on your dreams.
