Stephen Curry was not an All-Star this year. That is not quite as negligent as it sounds, even if the Golden State Warriors guard entered Thursday averaging 21.9 points, 6.5 assists and 1.7 steals. As outstanding a season as Curry is having, it would have been tough to justify bumping James Harden, Tony Parker or Russell Westbrook off the West squad. Still, Curry’s 54-point explosion Wednesday in New York served as a perfect reason to revisit the biggest snub of Curry’s basketball career. After earning all-state honors as a senior at Charlotte Christian School, the son of former NBA sharpshooter Dell Curry received zero scholarship offers from major Division I colleges. He received offers from Davidson, Winthrop and Virginia Commonwealth, with Virginia Tech — his father’s alma mater — saying, sure, come on down to Blacksburg, Va. As a walk-on. What Wardell Stephen Curry II did at Davidson, leading the Wildcats to the Elite Eight, turned out to be historic, and the Warriors took a relative gamble by taking him with the seventh pick in the 2009 NBA draft. Four years later, it seems the Warriors made the right decision — and that North Carolina, Duke, Virginia Tech and others made the wrong one. Check out some highlights from Curry’s time at Davidson in the video below.
