Millionaire Stephen Curry took some time and attended the Summer League with his son Canon Curry. It was Canon’s 4th birthday!
In a wholesome moment at the first game of the 2022 summer league, Stephen Curry was in attendance to see young players from the Golden State Warriors. He brought along his own young player, or so we hope!
Steph’s special guest today was none other than his four-year-old son Canon Curry. It was also Canon’s birthday! The Warriors’ point guard was sure to spend some time with his son.
They were having a fun night as Curry watched his team’s newest youngsters take on the Sacramento Kings. Unfortunately, the Warriors lost but we think the reigning Finals MVP wouldn’t be too fazed by it.
Stephen Curry and Canon Curry recreate iconic photos!
Life comes full circle they say and it looks like it did for Stephen Curry. He had a chance to recreate an iconic photo of himself and his father Dell Curry. He recreated that picture with his son, Canon Curry!
The former two-time MVP also had a lot of fun, even putting up his now-famous night-night celebration.
But the main talking point was this picture which looked eerily similar to that of him and his dad.
As fans, we hope young Canon chooses a basketball career like his dad and continues the generational shooting dominance in the NBA.
The Curry family is one of the proudest basketball families in the NBA today. Patriarch Dell Curry was a star at Virginia Tech and later enjoyed a very long NBA career. His wife, Sonya Curry, also played basketball in school before going into education.
Together the two had Steph Curry – a two-time NBA MVP, four-time NBA champion and an eight-time All-Star among many other accolades – and Seth Curry, a journeyman who has turned into a dependable shooting guard.
Who knows what the third generation of Currys will look like if they go into basketball?
But some Twitter users took the opportunity to show a fascinating parallel between their photo and one taken in 1992. The old photo shows a young Steph Curry sitting on his father’s lap and waving at the camera – almost identical to the one taken below.
NBA fans couldn’t help but remark at how amazing the similarity is. Some pointed out that it’s extra special since the first image was taken 30 years ago – the same number on Steph’s jersey.
