Watch Stephen Curry’s Dad Hit a 40-Foot Shot While Wearing Driving Shoes

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
