Golden State Warriors star, Stephen Curry has had his high school jersey retired. Warriors will play the Hornets on Wednesday.
However, with no game on Tuesday, the two-time NBA MVP visited his high school of Charlotte Christian to attend his jersey retirement ceremony.
The point guard might not have many regrets, but he shared one he had in his high school days.
“I went through some doubts about whether I could play on the varsity level at the time,” Curry said before a halftime ceremony at Charlotte Christian High School in which his No. 20 — yes, No. 20 — jersey was retired.
“But I wished I had pushed myself,” Curry said. “That taught me a lot — to just go for it and challenge yourself in that regard and not let doubts or what people might tell you or how short or skinny you might be deter you from where you want to be.”
Like that isn’t enough, Curry’s alma mater, Davidson College also honoured their former student in the halftime of their match against Duquesne. The school has renamed its student section the “Section 30” in honour of the all-time leading scorer.
Curry will have to complete his college degree, if his number will be retired by Davidson, a long standing rule at the college.
