Stephen Curry’s Journey to NBA Excellence: The Influence of His Mother’s Guidance


Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is a winner both on and off the court. While most of us are aware of his exploits on the basketball court, he also has a successful business empire.

While there are not many flaws in his game, Steph had a pretty bad record with turnovers during the start of his career. The situation turned so bad that Curry had to take the help of his mom, Sonya Curry.

Steph was averaging 3 turnovers per game and he had an agreement with his mom. The agreement was that he had to pay his mom a hundred dollars for every turnover after 3. Interestingly enough, although Steph was paying his mom a few hundred dollars at first, it slowly turned into thousands!

As the season came to an end, Curry paid his mom almost 7 thousand for his turnovers. Despite being one of the best players in the league, it seems Stephen Curry still pays the fine to his mom. “Yeah. The cheque stopped cashing a few years ago. She still calls it out for sure“, said the 4 time NBA champion.

How many turnovers did Stephen Curry average this season?

Although Stephen Curry led his team to a fantastic NBA title win during the 2021-22 season, he had a lot of turnovers this season. Curry turned it over 206 times for this season. On the other hand, other NBA stars like LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo turned it over 196 times and 219 times respectively.

However, his turnovers did not stop him from inspiring his team to a brilliant title win. Despite not being heavy favorites to win the title, the Golden State Warriors proved their haters wrong.

They faced a jubilant Boston Celtics in the NBA finals for the 2021-22 season. The Dubs faced an early scare as they went down in the 7-game series. Despite the pressure, the Warriors made a phenomenal comeback to win the series 4-2.

Curry achieved a major individual milestone as he won the Finals MVP award. He averaged 31.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists during the finals.
