The father of Stephen Curry, former NBA shooting star Dell Curry, walked the hallways at Oracle Arena with some jitters before his son's Golden State Warriors host Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the San Antonio Spurs.
He's feeling the nerves.
Dad is staying a a guest in the Bay Area at his son's house, visiting during the postseason prime-time matchup.
He said it's tough on the nerves to sit there and watch his son play, knowing that he can't do anything about it.
However, pops isn't offering any fatherly advice at this point, he said. But he did give his son a goal to shoot for, as the older Curry holds the family record for making it deepest into the postseason, to a seventh game in the second round.
Dell Curry played 16 seasons in the NBA, 10 seasons with the Charlotte Hornets, and averaged 40.2 percent from three-point range. He made 1,245 three-pointers in his career.
Stephen Curry is averaging 23.5 points and 8.3 assists this postseason and has 644 three-pointers through four seasons in the NBA.
