Curry can thank the Mavericks, above all other teams, for achieving status as one of the NBA’s premier closers.
Steph Curry turns 30 years old on Wednesday, but with the Warriors playing the Lakers, his friends and family decided to hold the party for him on Monday night.
Most of Curry's Warriors teammates attended the bash. Things must have gone late into the night because the team cancelled the planned practice for 11am on Tuesday.
Special guests included E-40, Paramore and Lecrae. Curry himself took a turn on the mic and belted out a few bars.
Based on the videos from the party, it appears Curry may have gotten a small yacht for a present.
Don't feel bad that you weren't invited. There were enough videos posted on Instagram Stories by Steph, his wife Ayesha, his sister Sydel, his brother Seth and E-40, among others. Check out some of the best here:

He not only returns but also conquers, scoring 46 points, including 12 3-pointers, punctuated by pulling up from 35 feet to sink the game-winner in OT. It is the biggest shot of the regular season.
