Riley also liked that Curry was the son of a successful and respected ex-NBA player. Riley sold then-Warriors coach Don Nelson on Curry as well. Austin and Dell Curry still tried to keep the Warriors away from Stephen Curry. But Austin told then-Knicks president Donnie Walsh that unless they could trade up, he expected Golden State to draft Curry. Austin said Walsh didn't believe him because the Warriors already had guard Monta Ellis. "I said, 'Larry, I like you a lot and respect you a lot, but don't take Steph. This is not the right place for him,' " Austin said. "We wanted him in New York." Said Riley: "Dell was the same way. He was almost cold." Yahoo! Sports

And indeed, Thompson credits competition between teammates for his development into an all-around scoring threat. “Trying to chase Steph,” he says. “That’s how you stay hungry. Try to do what he does. I can’t do that. I don’t think anyone on this planet can.” As Thompson and Curry have grown into what many believe is the NBA’s best backcourt, it has become clear that they’re linked by much more than their catchy Splash Brothers nickname. Their fathers, Mychal Thompson and Dell Curry, both had successful NBA careers before becoming broadcast analysts for the Lakers and Hornets, respectively. Grantland

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
