Stephen Curry is in his fifth season as a guard with the Golden State Warriors. A rising star in the NBA, Curry is one of the league’s best shooters.
Curry was selected by the Warriors in the first round of the 2009 NBA Draft (7th overall). He was named Western Conference Rookie of the Month for January, March and April. He finished his rookie season as runner-up for the 2009-10 NBA Rookie of the Year Award and was a unanimous First Team All-Rookie selection.
In 2010, Curry was a member of the USA Men’s Basketball Senior National Team that went 9-0 and won the Gold Medal at the 2010 FIBA World Championships in Turkey.
In the 2010-11 season, Curry upped his scoring average to 18.6 points per game. He also averaged 5.8 assists per game and led the NBA in free-throw percentage. During the 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend, Curry won the Taco Bell Skills Challenge. He was also the recipient of the NBA Sportsmanship Award for the 2010-11 season.
Curry made huge strides in his 2012-13 season, which included a 54-point outburst against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. On the final day of the regular season, Curry broke the NBA record for three pointers made in a single regular season. His 272 made three pointers were three more than previous record-holder Ray Allen. Curry led the Warriors to the sixth seed of the 2013 NBA Playoffs and eventually a first-round series win over Denver in six games.
Curry splashed onto the national scene while leading Davidson College to the Elite 8 in the 2008 NCAA Basketball Tournament. His sharpshooting and boyish looks made him a national headline while his small school played the role of Cinderella.
In 2008-09 he led the nation in scoring with 28.6 points per game and was a consensus first-time All-America selection. Curry was twice named the Southern Conference Player of the Year. He holds career records at Davidson for scoring, three-pointers, free throws, 30-point games and 40-point games.
One of the NBA's brightest upcoming stars, 2-time NBA All-Star Blake Griffin has quickly become the face of the Los Angeles Clippers franchise.
As a prototypical power forward, his dominant physical presence combined with his outstanding size and strength make him one of the NBA's elite athletes, and the first rookie to be named to the NBA All-Star team since Yao Ming. The NBA recognized his talents by naming him the NBA Rookie of the Month six months in a row (November & December, 2010 + January, February, March & April 2011), and he was unanimously voted as the 2010-11 NBA Rookie of the Year.
The awards should not really be considered a surprise for the No. 1 pick of the 2009 draft — except that he was first named the Rookie of the Month for November of 2010, not 2009, the year he was drafted. After dominating summer league play and the 2009 preseason, Griffin suffered a season-ending injury just days before the 2009-10 NBA season was to begin. That is where his strong work ethic and legendary workout sessions quickly made him one of the hardest-working men in the business. It is this constant drive to be the best that has fueled his success and dominance at every level.
