Strauss: So Steph’s passing you in career made 3s. How do you feel about that? Dell Curry: I’ve gotten notices from a few sportswriters and a lot of friends, jabbing me a little bit, but it’s great. The success he’s had, after a short amount of time in the league. It’s great. I’m just happy. I’m not only a dad, but a fan of the league and the game, and to have a son play so well on a really good team is just icing on the cake.
Strauss: I know that at one point, Steph changed his form. What was that process like? Dell Curry: I was very involved in it. Mom was right there, too.

For Austin, pushing back against charges of nepotism may be a never-ending struggle, but it doesn’t feel like a lost cause. “I guarantee you, in high school, people would say stuff to Stephen Curry: ‘You’re only here because of Dell,’” Austin said. “Ain’t nobody in the world would say that to Steph now. He’s the MVP of the league. So you can prove people wrong.” He laughed at the notion that all he’d have to do to silence all doubters is replicate Curry’s MVP season. “At the end of the day, I’m not going to base my career and my feelings off of how other people think,” Austin said. “That’s what a coward does, to be honest.
