NBA scouts nearly overlooked point guard Stephen Curry. Most NBA stars come from well-known schools, but not Stephen. He played for Davidson College in North Carolina, where he set the all-time scoring record for his university and his conference. In 2007-2008, he set the all-time college record for most three-point shots made in a season. Stephen was the seventh overall pick in the 2009 draft, chosen by the Golden State Warriors. He has racked up impressive stats ever since and led his team to the best record in the NBA midway through the 2014-2015 season.

INSTANT #1 BESTSELLER—ALL-ACCESS LOOK AT STEPH CURRY AND THE 2017 NBA CHAMPIONS GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS “A revolutionary player like Curry—whose three-point shooting altered basketball in a way similar to Babe Ruth changing baseball with the home run—deserves an in-the-moment book. And in the same way so many of Curry’s outlandish shots nestle softly into the net, so Thompson’s engaging and knowing biography successfully finds the mark.” —The Washington Post Golden is the first book to provide an all-access look at Steph Curry and the team that has fueled Dub Nation—by longtime Warriors beat reporter and Bay Area News Group sports columnist Marcus Thompson, the go-to expert on all things Golden State. A lifelong Warriors fan turned insider Thompson is uniquely qualified to tell the definitive story of a singular talent, pulling back the curtain on the crazy work ethic and on-court intensity that make Curry great—and the emphasis on family and faith that keeps him grounded. Combining the competitive grit and fun-loving spirit of his mother with the mild demeanor, easy charm, and sharp shooting of his father, former NBA player Dell Curry, Steph Curry derives support and strength from his close-knit kin and his commitment to Christianity. This hard-working, wholesome image however is both a blessing and curse in a League of big personalities. Thompson unravels the complicated underpinnings of the Steph Curry hate with a nuanced analysis of how class and complexion come into play when a child with an NBA pedigree becomes the face of a sport traditionally honed on inner-city black top and dominated by the less privileged. With unprecedented access, Thompson draws from exclusive interviews with Steph Curry, his family, his teammates, Coach Steve Kerr, and the Warriors owners to bring readers inside the locker room and courtside with this remarkable athlete and man.

Learn the Incredible Story of Basketball Superstar Stephen Curry! Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device! In Stephen Curry: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Sharpest Shooters, you'll read about the inspirational story of one of basketball's premier point guards Stephen Curry. Stephen Curry has had an electrifying five-year career playing in the National Basketball Association. In this short Stephen Curry biography, we will learn about how Steph became the star point guard that he is today. Starting first with his childhood and early life, we'll learn about Steph Curry prior to entering the NBA, his time in the NBA, along with his impact on the communities of Davidson College and Golden State. Steph Curry's success is not an accident. Steph Curry has transformed the Golden State Warriors franchise, spearheading the Warriors in the 2013-2014 NBA season to their second consecutive playoff birth. While the Warriors ultimately fell to the Clippers in Game 7, an exciting future presents itself for Golden State as the organization extended Klay Thompson's contract to keep the Splash Brothers together for several more years to come. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood High School Years of Steph Curry Steph's Davidson College Years 2009 NBA Draft Curry's NBA Career Steph's Selection to the 2014 All-Star Game Steph Curry's Personal Life Impact on Basketball and Beyond Steph Curry's Legacy An excerpt from the book: The first game was played against Gonzaga. The team was losing by as many as eleven points at the start of the second half, but Curry put on a heroic performance managing to score thirty points in the second half. This gave the Wildcats their first win in a NCAA tournament since 1969. Something similar happened in the second round as well. Curry was limited to five points in the first half against heavy favorites Georgetown and his team was trailing by seventeen points at one point. Curry managed to score twenty-five points in the second half, helping his team advance to the next round. Georgetown was the second seeded team in the nation that year. The whole nation noticed Curry's talent as the Wildcats lost to the top seeded Kansas Jayhawks after winning another battle versus third seeded Wisconsin. Curry managed to break several records in the process including: most three pointers in a season and joined an elite group of players to score more than 30 points in their first four games of a NCAA tournament. Stephen Curry made sure that Davidson's name would not be forgotten in the near future with his performances over his three years there. Now Curry has transferred his work ethic, attitude towards the game, and personal values into his NBA career. The future looks bright for Steph Curry at the age of twenty-five as he has already left a significant legacy at Davidson College and in the NBA as well. The holder of the record for total three pointers made in a regular season in the NBA and in the NCAA has a very optimistic future ahead of him. Steph Curry is emerging as one of the greatest point guards of the modern era. It will be exciting to see years from now how he will go down in the record books.
