Why is Stephen Curry so famous

Why is Stephen Curry so famous: Stephen Curry is a “legacy” player in the sense that his father was an NBA player as well.

Why is Stephen Curry so famous?

Despite his 6’3″ stature, Stephen Curry is the little guy. He weighs the same as me at 185 pounds (although he is taller and thus leaner). Unlike previous basketball heroes, he does not rely on power and strength to get through the blockers; instead, he works his way around them. He is so skilled at shooting, dribbling, passing, and teamwork that you realize he is a guy who doesn’t have the physical size to help him but who can still rise to the top. Curry can dunk the ball (although there is one funny video of him missing an undefended dunk; after the rebound, he shot a 3-pointer! ), but he usually just lobs the ball in after a layup. And he makes the  majority of his free throws

Why people loves Stephen Curry?

Stephen Curry is well-liked because he is one of those rare athletes who excels both on and off the court. He’s easy to talk to.

His Smile – Who’d have guessed that something as simple as a smile could make the entire world want to be around you?

He’s not a giant (he just plays like one) – despite standing over 6 feet tall, Steph still appears small in comparison to the Marc Gasols of the world. As a result, he is a kid’s favorite.

He’s a throwback – imagine being a father in the 1980s and having a son or daughter who only wants to play “Like Mike.” Layups and jump shots are difficult to sell because of the dunks and athleticism. Steph rekindled interest in something that had been missing for quite some time: the Jump shot.

Comeback -We love Rocky movies because they feature a comeback story. People adore Steph because of the devastating start to his career caused by ankle injuries – and his recovery from them.

Character – who doesn’t defer praise, thank everyone important to him, and bring his daughter to a press conference? Nobody.

NBA career

Curry was chosen seventh overall in the 2009 NBA Draft, but many thought it was a mistake to pick him so high. The argument against him was that he lacked the physicality required to succeed in the NBA. Many expected him to be a solid role player, but no one expected him to rise through the ranks as quickly as he did.

He had a surprising rookie season by media standards, averaging 17.5 points per game and making the NBA All-Rookie team. He improved a little more the following year, but he still wasn’t a star and wasn’t even considered famous. His third season ended abruptly due to a severe ankle injury that kept him out for the majority of the season.

Following an injury-plagued year, he steadily improved his game until the 2014-15 basketball season, when everything fell into place for him and his team, the Golden State Warriors. They ended up going on a tear for the entire season, with Steph averaging 30 points per game and winning his first MVP award. The Warriors went on to win the NBA championship that year, defeating LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers. Following their championship win, they became NBA media darlings due to their fast-paced, high-powered style of play, as well as their new “star” Steph Curry.
