It all started with a tweet.
Oakland musician Nimsins tagged the Warriors, along with players Draymond Green, Kevon Looney, Alfonzo McKinnie and Jordan Bell, in a tweet in late June asking for help with Concordia Park in Oakland. The basketball court was cracked, the park lacked lights and there was only one hoop on a full-length court.
But it was someone who wasn't tagged in the tweet, the Warriors' biggest star, who came through.

Stephen also gifted Rod his own custom pair of Curry 6s with graphics from the new court, painted by @DezCustomz, as a nod for “throwing an assist” to the community. pic.twitter.com/1PaIp6GyoD
Steph Curry unveiled the new Concordia Park on Tuesday. The new court features vibrant graphics, including some of Curry's favorite phrases such as "Ruin the Game" and "I Can Do All Things," which is in reference to a Bible verse he writes on his sneakers.
The Warriors' superstar point guard even greeted fans at the revamped court.

That was just the beginning, too. Curry threw down a slam on one of the brand new hoops, and even let someone dunk over him.

Curry and the Warriors are leaving Oakland for a new home in San Francisco as they move into Chase Center, but the two-time MVP never will forget about The Town.
