Steph Curry’s Father Admits He Told Golden State Not To Draft His Son
Could you imagine Steph Curry playing for another organization? Apparently, his father did. Dell Curry spent 15 years playing in the NBA, but when it was time for his son Steph to enter the league, he had his own opinions of where his kin should land. In a recent interview, Dell admits that he wanted the New York Knicks to draft his son in 2009. Ten years ago, Curry was passed on by five teams. The Timberwolves passed on him twice, drafting Ricky Rubio and Jonny Flynn with back-to-back picks at numbers five and six. Dell was hoping the Knicks would scoop Steph up with the eighth pick, and that’s what the Curry camp was rooting for.
Don Nelson, who was the coach of the Warriors at the time, had his eye on Steph though. Nelson asked Dell his opinion about the matter, and the Curry patriarch infamously told him not to draft his son. “Don’t,” Dell recalled telling Nelson. “You asked me the question, I’ll tell you the truth. Don’t [draft him]… We just thought his game fit a better team, a better scenario, the way another team was playing, up and down, faster and had a better locker room.” It appears that everything worked out perfectly.
