Curry, who attended Davidson for three years and led the No. 10 seed Wildcats on a Cinderella run to the Elite Eight in 2008, is in North Carolina for NBA All-Star Weekend, which is taking place in Charlotte.

In addition to the crowd leap, the two-time NBA MVP signed autographs and sang "Sweet Caroline" with fans:

The Curry family is having a great week. Stephen's brother, Seth, got engaged to former All-SEC volleyball player Callie Rivers on Thursday. Both brothers are taking part in the three-point contest, and Stephen will be making his sixth NBA All-Star Game appearance Sunday.

Their mother, Sonya, also drilled a half-court shot at a Curry Family Foundation event:
