Report: Steph Curry's personal security guard is no longer with the Warriors

Steph Curry is in the market for a new personal security guard.

Ralph Walker -- who has been with the Warriors since the 2011-12 season -- is no longer with the team, according to Janie McCauley of the Associated Press.

In March 2016, Chris Ballard of Sports Illustrated wrote a terrific profile on Walker.

An excerpt:

Over the last two seasons, Walker has likely spent as much time with Curry as anyone outside the star’s family. Last year, at the urging of GM Bob Myers, the team hired a second security rep—Walker’s old partner, West—so that Walker could focus on Steph. He now accompanies Curry virtually everywhere he goes when on the road.

He also can’t do this forever. It’s become nearly a year-round job—summer camps with Curry, attending sponsor commitments with other players, checking on someone’s house if they’re worried it’s not secure. Someday, maybe soon, he’ll call it quits.

It appears that day has come...

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph Curry lived up to his Splash Brother moniker on Sunday, and jumped into Lake Tahoe after losing a bet with his father, Dell Curry, at the American Century Championship.

The Splash Father bet the Splash Son he would trail by fewer than 20 points at the end of the tournament. The elder Curry had room to spare on Sunday, too, and was just 18 back of his son. 

The two-time MVP was a man of his word. 

 

Last year, the Currys made the same bet, and it was Dell Curry who had to purify himself in the waters of Lake Tahoe. He tied for 30th at the event this year, while Curry tied for 11th.

Move over, China Klay. Tahoe Steph is making a "triumphant" return of his own. 

Last summer, Warriors guard Steph Curry unsuccessfully tried dunking on a hoop on the course at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.

On Friday, the hoop made it 2-0. 

Would Golden State remain resounding favorites to three-peat as NBA champions if the team had to play every game in golf attire? Maybe that's how commissioner Adam Silver can achieve "parity of opportunity."
