Stephen Curry is in his sixth season as a guard with the Golden State Warriors. A starter in the 2014 NBA All-Star Game, Stephen is one of the league’s best shooters.

Last season, Stephen averaged career highs of 24.0 points (seventh in the NBA) and 8.5 assists (fifth) along with 4.3 rebounds and 1.63 steals, becoming the first player in Warriors history to average 24 points and eight assists in a single season. He led the league in three-pointers made for a second consecutive season with 261, and tied for second in the NBA in triple-doubles with four, the most by a Warrior in a single season since Wilt Chamberlain had five in 1963-64.

In 2010 and 2014, Stephen was a member of the USA Men’s Basketball Senior National Team that won Gold Medals at the FIBA World Championships.

Stephen was selected by the Warriors in the first round of the 2009 NBA Draft (7th overall). He finished his rookie season as runner-up for the 2009-10 NBA Rookie of the Year Award and was a unanimous First Team All-Rookie selection.

Stephen splashed onto the national scene while leading Davidson College to the Elite 8 in the 2008 NCAA Basketball Tournament. His sharpshooting and boyish looks made him a national headline while his small school played the role of Cinderella.

In 2008-09 he led the nation in scoring with 28.6 points per game and was a consensus first-time All-America selection. Stephen was twice named the Southern Conference Player of the Year. He holds career records at Davidson for scoring, three-pointers, free throws, 30-point games and 40-point games.
