Warriors

To quote Ron Burgundy, "Stephen Curry is kind of a big deal."

He averaged 24.0 points and 8.5 assists per game last season, en route to making Second-Team All-NBA.

He became the first Warriors player to be named an All-Star starter since Latrell Sprewell in 1995.

In the 2012-13 season, he broke the record for most 3-pointers in a single-season in NBA history with 272.

He is a household name.

Earlier this week, Curry sat down with Dime Magazine while filming a Degree Men commercial and shared a funny story from this offseason:

Dime: I talked with you before, and I thought it was hysterical you got ID’d all the time with that baby face. I also have that problem. Does it still happen to you a lot? Has it happened since the season ended, or — like you’re pretty famous now, but has it happened recently?

Curry: It happened at California Pizza Kitchen in the Bay Area like 15 minutes from my house. We went, I tried to get a drink after the season, that’s exactly what happened.

Me and my wife went to dinner, and we didn’t have our daughter with us, and she was with the babysitter. So I ordered a beer, and I didn’t have my ID with me, ‘cause I left it in the car and I thought she’d recognize me.

So the waitress asks, and I was like, ‘Uh, is your manager here,’ and I took my chances with him knowing who I was, and … he knew.

But she basically, yeah, she wouldn’t give me the benefit of the doubt, knowing that I didn’t look like I was over 21 and not knowing who I was.

Dime: Did she apologize at all after the manager came over?

Curry: Not really. I don’t think she knew basketball at all, so I don’t think it registered.

Dime: Her manager was probably like, ‘Good, so she’s not serving anyone under 21.’

Curry: [Laughs] Exactly, ‘We’re doing our job.’

Drafted seventh overall in 2009, Curry, 26, is entering his sixth NBA season with the Warriors.
