Before Steph Curry was winning MVP awards and NBA titles, his father, Dell Curry, was quite the player himself. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard only started 99 games in his 16 year career, but he still managed to pump in more than 12,000 career points. That’s because, just like his son, Dell had one of the sickest shooting strokes in NBA history. You’d be hard pressed to find a more textbook jumper than the one Dell Curry had, and it was his tremendous ability to knock down jumpers that kept him in the league for so long. After all, we aren’t talking about a guard who grabbed many rebounds or dished out many assists, and he certainly wasn’t a defensive stopper. But Dell Curry’s ability to shoot the basketball helped earn him the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award in 1993-94, when he averaged 16.3 points despite not starting a single game that year. To this day, he is one of the greatest players in Charlotte Hornets franchise history.
