Dell Curry: Steph’s Success Really Hasn’t Sunk In Yet
Bobcats analyst and former Charlotte Hornets star Dell Curry joined the program to talk about his son Stephen Curry making the All Star team as a starter, how much that means to his family, and of course the Bobcats first half of the season.
“It was a dream come true not only for me and my wife, to our entire family, but to Steph as well,” says Dell Curry once they found out that his son will be heading to New Orleans for the 2014 NBA All-Star Game.
Steph’s father said that his son should have made it last year based on his stats, but was extremely happy to find out that the fans and NBA recognized his talent and hard work he has put in to have an amazing season so far with the Golden State Warriors.
But to have a son that is better than you were in the NBA?
“I have no problem with that,” responded Dell Curry. “What father in the world wouldn’t want their son to be better than they are in the same craft.”
As a fifth year TV sports analyst for the Charlotte Bobcats, Curry didn’t plan on spawning into a huge career. But it “keeps him in the game” allowing him to follow his son, support the hometown team, and get some travel in.
The Charlotte Bobcats are currently in the eighth slot for the Eastern Conference Playoffs, but does the team have what it takes to make it to the postseason?
“It’s definitely a playoff team,” says Curry.
But with Kemba Walker out on injury and having a big week away playing games, the team he feels has a tough road to get through in order to win some games and remain in contention to play after the regular season.
