Last year, the four-time NBA champion returned to the academic facility where he played his collegiate basketball, Davidson College, a small Division 1 school to obtain the degree that eluded him. He left college early to pursue the career that his father, Dell Curry was successful in went he was drafted into the NBA. Curry was drafted number seven overall by the Golden State Warriors and has been with the team his whole NBA career.
Earlier in the year after Curry earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology from Davidson, he was unable to attend the graduation because he was busy winning his fourth NBA title. So, in August, the school welcomed him back to get his degree and to retire the jersey number (30) he wore while playing at Davidson. When they did so, Curry became the first athlete in Davidson’s history to receive this honor.
