Warriors superstar Steph Curry made his NBA debut exactly 10 years ago today.
On Oct. 28, 2009, the 21-year-old Curry recorded 14 points (7-for-12 overall, 0-for-1 on 3-pointers), seven assists, four steals and two rebounds in a 108-107 loss to the Rockets.
The immediate reaction -- he only attempted one 3-pointer?!
This was an interesting nugget from the AP recap:
The Rockets took a ferry from San Francisco, where they stayed across the bay, to Oakland. The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is temporarily closed down for emergency repairs after a cable on the bridge's upper deck snapped Tuesday.
As for Curry-related content:
Curry's much-anticipated debut was hyped to a near-Chris Webber level ... Curry had a steal on the Rockets' first possession but immediately missed a 3 on the other end. He was 1 for 6 in the first half and got swatted as he went up for a layup in the closing minutes of the second quarter.
The hype ultimately was deserved, as Curry resurrected the lowly franchise and led the Warriors to three championships and five straight NBA Finals appearances.
And in the process, he became a two-time NBA MVP and the only unanimous selection in league history.
At this point, Golden State fans simply are hoping he can lead the Dubs to their first victory of the season Monday night in New Orleans.
