Stephen Curry is making headlines again, but not for his points per game average or his effortless three-pointers. During Monday night’s Golden State Warriors home match against the Charlotte Hornets (Jan. 4), a blast from the past occurred in the Oracle Arena.
Courtesy of CSN Bay Area, a Burger King commercial resurfaced which showcased the father-son dynamic of Dell and Steph Curry engaged in futuristic talks. “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Dell asked his precocious child. You probably can guess what young Steph said next and know that the rest came to fruition.

His father’s response was simply, “You’ve really got to be hungry for it.” Now, “Steph Curry with the shot” has cooked up a delectable season following his 2014-15 championship win and the NBA MVP title of that same year. GSW are also first in the Pacific Division, standing tall with the record 32-2.
Dell Curry has also achieved records of his own during his time as a professional athlete. As a player for the Charlotte Hornets, where he spent 11 seasons, he retired as the team’s all-time leader in points and won the Sixth Man of the Year award in 1993.
