Any assumption that Stephen Curry got all of his shooting talent from his father, Dell Curry, was proven wrong on Friday. 

Stephen's mom, Sonya, took a page out of his playbook at the Carole Hoefener Center to start the NBA All-Star Weekend by sinking a half-court shot:

After making her half-court heave, Sonya wasn't about to let her sons forget they were bested by their mom:

They were hosting a Curry Family Foundation event, with the family divided into four teams. Sonya and Dell were partnered up against three other duos, including Stephen and his wife, Ayesha, Seth and his girlfriend, Callie Rivers, and Golden State Warriors guard Damion Lee and his wife, SydelStephen and Seth's sister.

With the uncertainty around Kevin Durant's long-term status in Golden State, Sonya's shooting touch would make her a fine replacement if the team goes looking for help this summer.
