Marcus Thompson:

The Currys, who hail from Charlotte, N.C., are the typical Southern family -- massive and down-to-earth. Curry has no shortage of aunties and uncles, cousins and family friends to keep him grounded.

To them, he isn’t the baby-faced Davidson rock star, or the answer to the Warriors’ troubles. He’s just Wardell Stephen Curry II.

He aint changed one bit, said Warriors second-year guard Anthony Morrow, who has been friends with Curry since the two played against each other while at rival Charlotte high schools. Not even exaggerating. He is the same Steph from when he was in high school. Great kid.

Also of note: The game that sold Larry Riley on Stephen Curry? Purdue.
