Warriors’ Stephen Curry reveals MAJOR reason for NBA success

Steph Curry, a member of the Golden State Warriors, discussed how his time at Davidson University shaped him into the NBA player he is today during a recent episode of Hot Ones.

“The brand of basketball that I play now was predicated on a system that Davidson College, Bob McKillop, mastered,” Curry said. “And the only reason I think I’m successful at it is I got to learn with reps. So having gone to [Virginia] Tech or Duke, or whatever, maybe I ride the bench my freshman year and I don’t get that experience, I don’t know if I’d be the same player.”

Curry added, “It’s kind of a message of go where the best fit is for you. As much as you might want to have the pedigree or the resume to say, ‘I played in the ACC, I played in a power conference.’ That’s all cool, but myself, Damian Lillard, Ja Morant, guys who went to mid-major colleges, they’ll find you wherever you’re at. I had faith at the time, I didn’t know how it would pan out. I wouldn’t change that experience for anything.”

Curry is an advocate for players attending the school that is best for them and their career, as opposed to picking the school with the largest name, because his college experience shaped him into the player he is today.
