Curry scored 40 points in the first round to upset the No. 7 seed Gonzaga, 30 points in the second round to beat the No. 2 seed Georgetown and 33 points to beat the No. 3 seed Wisconsin Badgers in the Sweet Sixteen. He also dropped 25 points when Davidson’s storybook run ended in a 59-57 loss to the No. 1 seed Kansas Jayhawks. That’s when his father, Dell, knew Curry had an NBA career ahead of him. “It was probably after Steph’s sophomore year in college when they made that big run to the Elite Eight,” Dell said on the “Rex Chapman Show” podcast when asked about the moment he knew Steph was destined for the pros. “I said, ‘OK, he’s going to be a top player, top pick in the draft.”
“Seth had the mentality, if Steph’s gonna do it I know I can do it,” Dell explained. “What are you talking about? I used to kill him in the backyard. That is Seth Curry’s mentality right now. “He’ll tell you, ‘I’m a better shooter than Steph. He just gets more shots than I do. He has free reign. He touches the ball more. I’m a better shooter than him right now.’ That was his mentality the entire time.”
“I know he’s really looking forward to this year because he’s had a chance to play and practice and really concentrate,” Dell Curry said in a conference call. “He’s been able to unwind, as opposed to finishing the finals and a week later he’s in Tahoe without a chance to unwind and rest up. He has a real good short game. He’s definitely thinking that maybe it’s his year.”
Curry was fortunate to be the son of NBA player Dell Curry. His parents, having grown up in rural Virginia, had experienced racism but were able to shield Stephen and his brother and sister while at the same time educating them on the matter. Curry, who was raised Charlotte, N.C., had a different experience. “I was surrounded by (racism) but I didn’t experience it as much because my dad was playing in the NBA and there was a certain benefit that came with that in terms of how people interacted with us,” Curry said. “Sports took us to a place where they could put it aside for a second and treat my dad and my family with a level of respect you could feel, but you never knew what was going to happen as soon as your back was turned.”
