Dell Curry, who spent most of his 16-year career with the Charlotte Hornets, said he wanted his sons to discover the game for themselves. Only after they expressed an interest did Curry become actively involved, and even then, he said, he did his best not to be obnoxious about it. “The last thing you want is to go home and hear your kids saying, ‘Oh, here comes Dad again,’ ” Curry said. “As a parent, you can’t push your child to do something that you want more than they do. It’s not going to last.” New York Times

Dell Curry said he never had any doubt that Stephen would play. He was so confident, in fact, that he didn't bother to check on his son's status at any point leading up to the tipoff on Friday. "A couple buddies of mine texted me, and was like, 'Is Steph playing?'" he said. "I was like, 'They're going to have to cut his foot off for him not to play.' I didn't talk to him about his ankle. "I knew he was going to play. There was no doubt about that, whether his ankle was healthy or not. I told him before the game, I told him that this was the game that I thought would decide the series." USA Today Sports
