Steph Curry relives memories with Dell in his new Facebook docuseries

Steph Curry relives memories with Dell in his new Facebook docuseries

Steph Curry's latest Facebook web series debuted in Oakland on April 1 during a screening in front of family, friends, and the media.

"Stephen vs. The Game" takes fans behind the scenes into Curry's personal life. But this time around, his daughter Riley was watching some of the footage. And she was so fascinated by just how much she physically resembled her father.

"She thinks it’s crazy how much we look alike. I said, ‘That is how genetics work, babe.’” Curry told The Undefeated.

That's Steph on the left for those of you who too, can't tell the difference.

“But even just in the process of making the documentary over the last year, all I know is some of the footage, whether it made it into the documentary or not, has given us the opportunity to remember this snapshot in and round out the story,” Curry added.

Before the Warriors' 115-109 win over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night, Curry talked about the docuseries, highlighting the platform and bringing the public into his personal life.

"It’s stuff that people think they know but don’t really know. This is an opportunity to share what has made me, me, in terms of family, my faith, from the time I was born until now.”

Yes, there are baby photos of Steph in the docuseries so he's right -- it's what the people want. And in addition to the childhood photos, there is footage of Curry and his dad when Dell was making a name for himself as a guard for the Charlotte Hornets.

Steph talked about how the roles have since reversed.

“What stood out was probably all the stuff from the Hornets days when I was sitting on my dad or my mom’s lap when my dad was doing his time in Charlotte,” Curry said. “It’s crazy like, thinking, like, [now] that’s Riley, Ryan or Canon sitting on me and [my wife] Ayesha’s lap talking about the same stuff. But it’s a different era. I haven’t seen that type of footage with how young my parents look at the time, when they were just starting their journey with their family. And now, me and Ayesha are doing the same thing.”

He holds true to the family theme that the series offers but makes sure it doesn't change the dynamic the Curry household holds.

“I didn’t want to disrupt anything they normally do in terms of their routines on a daily basis,” Curry said. And the daily routine of his job is as well.

“It’s an opportunity for me to open the veil a little bit in terms of team challenges that we face throughout the journey and the chasing of the championship."

His overall goal? He wants viewers to be inspired by Curry finding their own passions and joys in life.

"And confidence, too," he said. 

How Steph Curry, Warriors' brand continues to make huge global impact

How Steph Curry, Warriors' brand continues to make huge global impact

Despite the down season and not being one of the 22 teams invited to the Orlando restart, the Warriors still manage to be a global phenomenon.

In an interview with The Athletic, P.K. Ong, co-founder of the SG Basketball academy which has multiple venues in Singapore, said that’s apparent. It showed quickly with the pace of the way they sell out of a certain superstar’s jersey. 

“Whenever you go into a (sporting goods) store, Steph Curry jerseys are the first thing you see when you walk in," Ong said. "They’re everywhere,."

Ong also told The Athletic, the shift changed in who the kids he coached looked up to off the court as well. They went from being huge Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant fans to wanting to shoot three-pointers like Steph.

Don’t we all want that?

Back in 2018, a group of the campers joined Ong for a trip to the Bay Area. They went on a tour of the Warriors practice facility and ran drills with some of the coaching staff. It was a “dream come true,” for the kids.

The global influence doesn’t stop there. Klay Thompson, AKA #ChinaKlay made a persona for himself when with his popularity surging in the country and his shoe deal with the Chinese brand Anta.

And I mean, check out the turnout when he arrives:

Steph made a trip to Japan last summer with hopes of growing the game of basketball across the world, and the moment he got off the plane, it was chaos, but in the best way.

He, along with the team, make an impact everywhere they go. 

Warriors' Rick Welts shares funny story of being mistaken for Joe Lacob

Warriors' Rick Welts shares funny story of being mistaken for Joe Lacob

Warriors team president Rick Welts went to Croatia for vacation in the summer of 2018.

Wearing a Warriors hat in a restaurant resulted in a waiter saying, "Curry, yeah!" Welts recently explained to Daniel Brown of The Athletic.

Soon thereafter, other employees began to believe they were in the presence of Warriors owner Joe Lacob.

“He just started screaming to his co-workers there, ‘Joe Lacob! Joe Lacob! Joe Jacob!' " Welts told Brown. “I was waving, ‘No, no, no!’ but I gave up.

"So, I impersonated Joe Lacob — and got really good service from this really tiny restaurant in Croatia.”

Now that is a savvy play from a seasoned veteran.

Welts has helped turn the Warriors into a global brand, which is why the franchise elected not to change its name to the San Francisco Warriors when they relocated from Oakland to Chase Center.

"What's happened in the interim is the Warriors, with the success we've had on the floor, have now become the team that everyone knows around the world," Welts told Warriors radio voice Tim Roye in April 2017. "More Steph Curry jerseys are sold around the world than any other player in the NBA. More Warriors merchandise than any other team in the NBA.

"So now, I think we've done a 100 percent reversal, saying, 'You know, we have a lot of equity in this Golden State name and it really means something around the world.' "

And that includes Croatia.
