by Clayton Geoffreys. Edition Date:: 04/14/2014
An Amazon Best Seller, Stephen Curry: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Sharpest Shooters, outlines the inspirational story of one of basketball's premier point guards, Stephen Curry. Stephen Curry has had an electrifying basketball 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.
It is hard to believe that a player who once was overlooked at every point in his career has made himself such an impactful and influential player to the game of basketball today.
Steph Curry has transformed the Golden State Warriors franchise from a lottery-bound team to a perennial contender, spearheading the Warriors to a 2015 NBA Championship over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Following an MVP season with extraordinary numbers early into the 2015-2016 NBA season, the future is bright for young Curry as he works to lead the Warriors to a back-to-back championship this year alongside his supporting cast of Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andrew Bogut.

An excerpt from the book:
We were all taught in our science classes that we as children inherit the genes of our parents. Their physical appearance and even sometimes their disease history becomes part of who we are. Most of the time, we also copy their attitudes and mannerisms. In the case of Wardell “Steph” Curry, one couldn’t help but wonder if he also inherited his NBA father Dell Curry’s shooting touch. An NBA pundit said that great shooters were not made they were born.
Fans of the league have been very privileged to watch some of the greatest shooters that ever played the game. From the likes of Pete Maravich, Larry Bird, erstwhile three-point record holder Reggie Miller and the one who unseated him Ray Allen, we have been witnesses of the greatest shooting displays on the planet. However, some scribes have rated Steph Curry, even in the early stages of his career, as the greatest shooter in history. Although this is still debatable, some of Curry’s performances have backed up this somewhat outrageous statement, especially to those loyal Miller or Allen fans. On February 27, 2013 Curry lit up Madison Square Garden scoring a career-best 54 points, including 11 of 13 from deep. He also owns the league record for three-pointers made in a single season with 272 set during the 2012-13 season, taking it away from Allen.
