库里是北卡罗来纳州夏洛特基督教学校的高中生。他被任命为全州，全部会议和团队MVP，同时带领他的学校获得三次会议冠军和三次州季后赛。在他的大四赛季，他从三分球命中率接近50％。当北卡罗来纳州的戴维森学院登陆斯蒂芬库里时，学校打了大学篮球彩票。作为一名大一新生，库里带着野猫队参加了2007年NCAA锦标赛，并以13分的成绩创造了NCAA三分球命中赛季的新赛季纪录。尽管戴维森在锦标赛中输给了马里兰，但库里被评为南部年度最佳新人。库里在大二赛季再次带领戴维森参加NCAA锦标赛。然而，这一次，戴维森将在第一轮中脱颖而出。库里得到40分，三分球8投10中，带领他的学校超越冈萨加。这是戴维森自1969年以来的第一次锦标赛胜利。戴维森也将在那一年击败三号种子威斯康辛。库里将继续创造一个赛季最多三分球的纪录。不幸的是，野猫队被顶级种子堪萨斯队淘汰出局。库里选择离开他的大四赛季进入NBA。尽管他的体型不足 – 库里身高6英尺3英寸 – 金州勇士队在2009年NBA选秀中使用了他的第七顺位。他的新秀赛季场均得到17.5分，并且一致被评为2010年最佳新秀第一阵容。在2012-13 NBA赛季之前，勇士队将库里签下了四年的续约，价值4400万美元。事实证明，这是金州多年来做出的最佳决定之一。 2012-13赛季将成为库里的突破年。他在常规赛中场均得到22.9分并带领勇士队进入2013年NBA季后赛，他们在丹佛掘金队赢得了他们的第一轮系列赛，但在半决赛中输给了圣安东尼奥马刺队。勇士队在2014年未能进入决赛，但在2015年赢得了对阵克利夫兰骑士队的NBA总冠军。尽管金州勇士队取得了3-1的优势并且在两年内赢得了第二个NBA总冠军，但是库里领导的勇士队在2016年输给了勒布朗詹姆斯和骑士队的决赛。相反，骑士队能够在很大程度上通过他们的方式获得冠军而进行历史性的复出。截至2017年春天，库里是他4400万美元合同的最后一年，但他告诉“圣何塞水星报”，他很高兴为勇士队效力。 “就像我从第一天开始说的那样……这是一个完美的比赛场所。……我现在真的没有理由能够把我吸引到其他地方。”尽管如此，由于2016年底达成的集体谈判协议中包含的变化，库里可能在五年内与金州签订下一份合同，赚取多达2.07亿美元。由于复杂的工资帽规则，其他团队只能向Curry支付约1.35亿美元 – 所以他可能会留在至少五年的地方。
Curry is a high school student at the Charlotte Christian School in North Carolina. He was appointed to the statewide, all conference and team MVP, while leading his school to three conference titles and three state playoffs. In his senior season, he shot nearly 50% from three-pointers. When Davidson College in North Carolina landed in Stephen Curry, the school played college basketball lottery. As a freshman, Curry took the Wildcats to the 2007 NCAA Tournament and scored a new season for the NCAA three-pointer season with 13 points. Although Davidson lost to Maryland in the tournament, Curry was named Southern Newcomer of the Year. Curry once again led Davidson to the NCAA Tournament during the sophomore season. However, this time, Davidson will stand out in the first round. Curry scored 40 points and made 10 of 8 three-pointers, leading his school beyond Gonzaga. This is Davidson’s first championship victory since 1969. Davidson will also defeat the third seed Wisconsin that year. Curry will continue to create a record of up to three-pointers a season. Unfortunately, the Wildcats were eliminated by the top seed Kansas. Curry chose to leave his senior season to enter the NBA. Despite his lack of size – Curry is 6 feet 3 inches tall – the Golden State Warriors used his seventh overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. He averaged 17.5 points per game in his rookie season and was consistently named the 2010 All-Rookie First Team. Prior to the 2012-13 NBA season, the Warriors signed Curry for a four-year contract worth $44 million. It turns out that this is one of the best decisions that Golden State has made over the years. The 2012-13 season will be Curry’s breakthrough year. He averaged 22.9 points in the regular season and led the Warriors into the 2013 NBA playoffs. They won their first round in the Denver Nuggets, but lost to the San Antonio Spurs in the semifinals. The Warriors failed to reach the finals in 2014, but won the NBA championship against the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2015. Although the Golden State Warriors scored a 3-1 advantage and won the second NBA championship in two years, the Curry-led Warriors lost to LeBron James and the Cavaliers in 2016. Instead, the Cavaliers were able to make a historic comeback by largely winning their way through the way. As of the spring of 2017, Curry was the last year of his $44 million contract, but he told the San Jose Mercury News that he was happy to play for the Warriors. “Like I said from the first day… this is a perfect venue…. I really have no reason to be able to attract me to other places.” Still, Due to the changes included in the collective bargaining agreement reached at the end of 2016, Curry may sign the next contract with Golden State within five years, earning as much as $207 million. Due to the complicated salary cap rules, other teams can only pay Curry about $135 million – so he may stay in at least five years.
