Dell Curry Told Golden State Warriors Not To Draft Son Steph Curry

Dell Curry Told Golden State Warriors Not To Pick Son Steph Curry

Ten years ago the Golden State Warriors drafted Steph Curry, and his father, Dell Curry, recently admitted to telling the organization not to draft his son in 2009, instead wanting him with the New York Knicks.

Additionally, Dell, who spent 15 years in the NBA himself, recalls draft day and telling then-coach Don Nelson“‘Don’t [draft my son]. You asked me a question. I’m going to tell you the truth. Don’t. [..] 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.”

In addition, Steph’s mother, Sonya Curry, retorts, “Well that’s the dad answer, and the professional athlete answer. Mine was, ‘Golden State is too far away. Where’s my baby going? I don’t know where Golden State is.'” #Socialites, could you see Steph with the Knicks or another team?
