The hope in the Curry camp was that he would fall to the New York Knicks at No. 8. As the draft went on, the only team in the way of that happening was the Warriors, whose head coach at the time, Don Nelson, loved the Davidson sharpshooter and wanted to take him at No. 7. As the Warriors’ pick approached, Nelson reached out to Steph’s father, Dell Curry, whose opinion was valued as a 16-year NBA vet, to ask his thoughts about Golden State drafting his son. Dell wasn’t having it. “Don’t,” Dell recalled telling Nelson. “You asked me the question, I’ll tell you the truth. Don’t [draft him].”

More than 30 years after his last visit to the White House, Bob Cousy will return on Thursday so President Trump can present him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The 91-year-old Holy Cross and Celtics basketball legend will be the sole recipient during a ceremony scheduled to begin at the Oval Office at 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Trump called Cousy in December to inform him that he planned to present him the honor and Cousy received the official notification from the White House last month. “I’ve thought so much about it,” he said. “For me, it closes my life circle. It’s a completion for me. I will be a happy camper. I’m already the luckiest SOB on the face of the planet and this simply certifies that.”
