On Wednesday night, he took another step in his impressive, if not unlikely career, passing Dell Curry to become the franchise’s career scoring leader with 9,841 points. “It’s super special because of all of the doubt I’ve gotten throughout my career and all of the criticism, but I just continue to prove them wrong,” Walker said. The emotions boiled over for Walker after he made a reverse layup with 20 seconds left in a 118-105 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers to break the record Curry held for 26 years.
Walker did his best to stay composed during post-practice media Friday, but he said it would be devastating to be traded out of Charlotte. “This is the first time I’ve been in this kind of situation,” Walker said of the trade chatter. I’ve been here for the last seven years, and I’m going to do what I can do to help my team win games. That’s all I can do.” And if the Hornets sent him packing? “I’d be pretty upset,” said Walker, who is about 800 points away from supplanting Dell Curry as the all-time career scorer in Charlotte NBA history. “I have put my heart and soul into this city.”
Stephen Curry has scoped Lonzo Ball’s statistics. He has also heard the vitriol directed the rookie’s way. Bust. Overrated. Soft. “That’s all comedy,” Curry said with a chuckle. The Warriors superstar was laughing because he can recall experiencing such a period in his own career, albeit under a much smaller microscope. Due to the high-profile nature of their fathers, both Curry and Ball have faced heightened expectations throughout their careers. Dell Curry is a 16-year NBA veteran who possessed one of the sweetest jumpers in the NBA. LaVar Ball is a flamboyant figure who has gone to astronomical lengths to talk up his sons.

So, while Curry said his father was active but low key in his development as a player, he also said he can “sort of relate” to what the Lakers rookie is going through right now. “Early in my sophomore and junior years in high school, there was a little extra pressure because of who my dad was,” Curry said, “and I felt like everybody was kind of critiquing my every move on the court, and I was already not getting recruited or anything. I was always playing to be recognized by coaches. So, I had pressure on myself anyway. Whenever you miss a shot, the crowd goes crazy, and only for your misses and nobody else’s. The high school cheering sections going at me, and hounding me the whole game. Even in college, the same type of deal. It rubs you the wrong way a little bit. I had to go through those experiences. But at the end of the day, I taught myself how to have a sense of humor about it and understand that it kind of comes with the territory of choosing the same sport that my pops played, and dealing with it that way. [Lonzo] can’t let what people say bother him. Use it as motivation.”
