Reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry is one of the best shooters in the league, and this clip is proof that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
During a break in the action of the Golden State Warriors’ 126-111 home win over the Charlotte Hornets, Curry’s father, Dell — a former NBA standout — caught a pass from his son and decided to play along. Clad in a suit and tie with a pair of black leather driving mocs, the elder Curry gave fans flashbacks to his glory days by banking a 40-foot shot from near half court.
Dell, who currently serves as a color commentator for Hornets broadcasts, stands as the franchise’s all-time leading scorer with 9,839 points recorded from 1988 to 1998. Over the course of his 16-year career, Dell also played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks, Toronto Raptors and Utah Jazz.
While Dell almost certainly won’t be getting a signature shoe at this point in his career, his son’s latest Under Armour model was released Saturday in a new “Black/White” colorway (pictured below), and it’s available now for $139.99 from underarmour.com.
