Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors is a great role model. Not because he's a baller (a great one, at that) — but for who he is off the court.
He's a family man.
His daughters, Riley and Ryan, are absolutely adorable. Riley Curry has pretty much made a name for herself for her actions during her dad's press conferences. She makes me laugh every. single. time.
I mean, let's face it - she does what we all would rather do after a long day with no nap.
Not to mention Steph's wife, Ayesha, is gorgeous. Their relationship is actual #goals.
Bonus: Did you know Curry wears the same number his dad wore when he was in the NBA? #30forlife
Senior year of high school, Curry was small and received no scholarship offers from major-conference schools. He wanted to play for Virginia Tech, his father's alma mater, but they only offered him a chance to walk-on. In fact, only three schools offered him a scholarship. (Winthrop was one of them!!) He chose Davidson, a school that had not won an NCAA Tournament game since the 1960's.
Fast-forward a few decades, and now Curry is considered to be one of the greatest shooters in NBA history. He's a two-time NBA All-Star and was named 2015's NBA MVP.
He keeps his faith first.
During his MVP speech, he stated, "People should know who I represent and why I am who I am, and that's because of my Lord and Savior."
Curry also pounds his chest and points up as a reminder that he plays for God.
I'm glad there are still athletes out there who stand firm in their beliefs and use their platform for good instead of just for themselves. Shoutout to you, Stephen Curry. Keep it up!
