Stephen Curry’s Career Timeline
Despite being the son of a former NBA player, Curry’s career in basketball wasn’t a foregone conclusion. In fact, he was barely recruited in high school and played at Davidson, outside the Power Five conferences. It wasn’t until a breakout performance in the NCAA Tournament in 2008, followed up by averaging 28.6 points per game in the 2008-09 season, that NBA teams moved him up their draft boards. The Warriors selected him with the No. 7 overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft.
Curry made his first of nine All-Star teams in 2014 and led his team to the NBA championship in 2015, where he and the Warriors beat LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Since then, he’s won three more championships and was the league MVP in 2015 and 2016.
