Stephen Curry is a successful NBA shooter who received many awards like MVP, All-Star and he was AP’s athlete of the Year at one point.
Wardell Stephen Curry was born in Akron, Ohio and his zodiac sign is Pisces as he was born on March 14, 1988. His father used to play for NBA and most of his athletic career he played for Charlotte Hornets. His mother used to be a pro volleyball player, and given the fact that both of his parents are athletes, it’s no wonder that Curry got into sports, too.
During his time at Davidson College in North Carolina, he got into their team Wildcats, and during his second game, he scored an incredible 32 points when his team plated versus the University of Michigan. That got him the Southern Conference freshman of the year awards.
During his sophomore year, he became a star, and that earned him a place in Golden State Warriors in 2009.
During his first season at Golden State Warriors, Curry got on the second place in NBA’s voting for Rookie of the Year. The things he did on the court also got him many recognitions and places in NBA All-Rookie First Team and US’s Senior National Team.
During 2011 and 2012 he got may injuries while playing basketball, but that didn’t let him give up on his career, on the contrary. When he got back to playing, he came back stronger, and he even set the NBA record when he reached 272 three points hits. That got him the title as NBA’s best shooter. In 2014 and 2015 season he got the MVP award. Curry also set a new record of three-pointers with a total number of 286, and his team got their first championship after 40 years. During his time at Golden State Warriors, Warrior got to a fantastic spot when it came to basketball achievements. They had 73 wins in the 2015-16 season, and Curry again broke his own record of three-pointers when he scored 402 times. He got an MVP award again, and that just proved how successful and talented this young man is.
Another championship was earned in 2017, and that prompted his contract to be an astounding $201 million.
In addition to playing basketball, and given the success that he has, he is taking all his chances to cash it. He was endorsed with Under Armour, Brita, PressPlay, JPMorgan Chase and Vivo. Curry is one of the highest paid celebrities today, and is currently placed 8th on Forbes list of the highest paid athletes in the world.

He drives Mercedes G55, and we are sure that he has more cars in his garage, but he is usually seen in this black Mercedes.
