The Charlotte Observer devotes a series to North Carolina sports legends, and there are Stephen Curry ! The Warriors point guard was not born in the state, and did not wear the jersey of the Hornets or the Bobcats, but on the other hand, he made a name for himself on the side of Davidson, a small college in Carolina North.
As his dad, Dell, marked the history of the franchise and he always comments on the matches, many dream of seeing him one day in the jersey of the Hornets.
Several times, the quadruple NBA champion has left the door open, but as he is under contract until 2026, the chances of seeing him play in front of his relatives are dwindling… Here is his answer to the following question: “ Have you ever dreamed of returning to Charlotte at 38 or 39 to play a few more years? »
« I love the course with the Warriors, and there was never any real interest in playing for another team. But the curiosity to know what it would be like to play for your city, what it would be like to live in Charlotte, to settle there and all that? We think about it, that’s for sure“Replied the Warriors point guard.
But Stephen Curry, like a Dirk Nowitzki, a Tim Duncan or a Kobe Bryant, would also like to be the man of a single franchise. It’s become so rare…
« If I can play for the Warriors my entire career and be one of those players who have had a lot of success – individually and collectively with one team… This list is pretty short” he recalls. “But like I said, there’s also this curiosity that makes me say, ‘What would it be like to wear #30 in Charlotte like my dad?’ ».
