Missing the NBA season while the sports world is shut down? Golden State Warriors fans can fill the void with some throwback highlights from Stephen Curry's 2005 high school basketball season.
Curry was an all-state point guard at Charlotte Christian School after father Dell Curry retired from the Toronto Raptors and the family moved back to Charlotte.
In addition to all-conference and all-state honors, Curry led his school to three conference titles. An under-sized prospect, though, he was only offered a walk-on spot at Virginia Tech, where Dell had played, and he chose instead to attend Davidson College.
Curry started to show real flashes of greatness in college. In three years he became Davidson's all-time leading scorer (2,635 points), and in his sophomore season he set the NCAA record for most made 3-pointers in a season (162).
He went No. 7 overall to the Golden State Warriors in 2009 and has since emerged as one of the greatest offensive players of all time. A two-time MVP and three-time All-NBA First Team selection, Curry holds the NBA record for single-season 3-pointers made (402 in the 2015-16 season), which is one of his four seasons that rank top-six in that stat.
He's also already third all-time in career 3's, with 2,495. He trails only Reggie Miller (2,560) and Ray Allen (2,973), and at this rate he looks like a near lock to retire with the record.
The Warriors may be in the midst of a rebuild, but they have to be excited at the prospect of getting a healthy Curry back to make another playoff push next season.
