Stephen Curry discovered dad Dell holds NBA record for most points off bench

You learn something new every day -- that's the beauty of life. For instance, did you know it takes about a week to make a jelly bean?

Or, more importantly, that Dell Curry, Stephen Curry's dad, has the most points off the bench in NBA history? It's true.

And Steph himself is even impressed by that -- a fact the Warriors star just recently found out:

L.A. Clippers guard Lou Williams had his second 40-point game of the season Friday in a 118-110 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. This set the NBA record for most career 30-point games off the bench and gave him the second-most all-time bench points overall.

Not bad. Not bad at all.

And if you can get Steph's attention, you're doing something right.

So, yes, that's dope. That’s very dope. 

NBA rumors: Warriors acquire No. 41 overall pick in trade with Hawks

NBA rumors: Warriors acquire No. 41 overall pick in trade with Hawks

The Warriors already are making draft-day moves.

In need of wing depth and shooting, the Warriors reportedly made a move to acquire the No. 41 overall pick in Thursday night's NBA draft from the Atlanat Hawks. 

With the futures of Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson both up in the air, the Warriors need to find a way to fill the roster with cheap talent.

After losing Kevin Durant (at least for the season if not forever) and Klay Thompson (likely until at least March), the five-time defending Western Conference champions will need to add some scoring around Steph Curry, who will have to carry a much heavier load next season.

NBA draft results live: 2019 picks, trades during first, second rounds

It's NBA draft day!

The Warriors hold the Nos. 28 and 58 overall picks in the 2019 NBA Draft, which begins at 4 p.m. PT on ESPN. The Kings don't own a first-round pick, but they hold three selections -- Nos. 40, 47 and 60 overall -- in the second round.

The draft presents the best avenue for teams to add young, affordable talent, and both Golden State and Sacramento have plenty at stake Thursday.

With so much uncertainty surrounding the Warriors, particularly because of Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson's injuries, the Dubs need to address their roster with players who can help fill the void. Considering how many high-salaried players the Warriors have, hitting on draft picks is imperative to their future success.

The Kings narrowly missed the playoffs last season, and they're counting on the prospects they acquire in the draft to help push them over the top and secure the franchise's first playoff berth since 2006.
