How it happened

Curry's dad played in the NBA that is what inspired him to play in the NBA. But in college his coach’s did not think he would make it to the NBA. Because they said he was not a true point guard. But he had the resilience to recover from that and play his best. And they said he relied too much on the three point shot and was a weak finisher at the rim. But he had a strong conviction about what he was doing. Stephen curry did not let people tell him what he could do and what he couldn’t. So a couple years later he was the MVP and he prove all the people who doubted him wrong.
