Big Shock: 13-Year-Old Stephen Curry Was Really Good at Basketball (Video)
Retired shooting guard/small forward Dell Curry played 16 seasons in the NBA, the last three of which came with the Toronto Raptors from 1999 to 2002. During that time, his adolescent son attended a small private school called Queensway Christian College on the city’s west end, where he became a star on the 7th and 8th grade boys basketball team, leading the Saints to an undefeated 2001-02 season.
Of course, as you’ve probably deduced given the headline of this post, Dell Curry’s son is none other than Stephen Curry. And while an undefeated 8th grade season probably does not rank very high on this NBA superstar’s list of major life achievements, it was certainly a big deal for all the other kids who didn’t go on to become NBA MVP candidates.
On Thursday, in advance of Golden State’s game against the Raptors at the Air Canada Centre on Friday, the Toronto Star ran an article about Steph Curry’s brief time dominating the youth basketball scene in Toronto. And the article didn’t just feature former coaches and teammates gushing about 13-year-old Stephen Curry’s abilities. It also had a video of young Curry showing off his ball handling skills and draining three-pointers from NBA range.
Seriously. NBA range.
Take a look:
Yep, 13-year-old Stephen Curry was pretty good. Who’d have thought?
