A longtime Golden State Warriors insider traces the inspirational story of the NBA star to offer insight into his personal life and achievements as both an athletic leader and role model for kids.
"The incredible and inspiring story of Stephen Curry, the greatest shooter basketball has ever seen, and the ascension of the Golden State Warriors, by longtime Warriors beat reporter and Bay Area News Group sports columnist Marcus Thompson. When it comes to Steph Curry--point guard for the Golden State Warriors and reigning two-time NBA MVP--fans, coaches, experts, and analysts have been blown away by his takeover of the league. At 6-foot-3 and 180 pounds, Curly was deemed too small and too short by many NBA coaches. Yet he has taken the game back from the giants who have come to dominate the court. Following in the footsteps of his sharpshooting NBA father, Dell Curry, Steph turned up the "three-point revolution" several notches and has built one of the most exciting teams, along with his fellow Splash Brother, Klay Thompson; Draymond Green; and new superstar teammate Kevin Durant. Avid fans of the game and newcomers to the sport see Curry as a role model for both kids and aspiring players everywhere. Golden is the definitive story of this singular talent and his epic journey, with behind-the-scenes looks and informed insight. Thompson explores this all-star player, his love for the game and his team, and his close-knit and supportive family--including his celebrity chef wife, Ayesha, and adorable young daughters. If you ever wondered how Steph Curry came out of nowhere to take over, this is how."--Jacket.
