Growing up in Charlotte, Stephen Curry played grassroots basketball and has frequently said it was one of the best experiences of his young life. As he has developed into one of the world’s biggest athletic superstars, and a 3-time NBA champion, Curry said he has often thought about starting a travel team in his hometown, but there was always one problem.
“If I did it,” he said, “I had to have 100 percent confidence and faith in the team I put together to help run the (organization). Knowing how crazy the schedule is with the NBA season, that part of it was very important to me, so I had to be patient to find the right team to wave my flag and be able to lead these kids in the right direction and have similar principals and mindset that I do when it comes to the game of basketball.
“It took me 11 years really to get to that point.”
