Stephen Curry recreates iconic photo from rookie season in new City Edition jersey
Over 11 years later, Curry is a two-time league MVP and three-time NBA champion. He still remembers the journey, however, as do the Warriors.

The Dubs likely never could have imagined how Curry would revolutionize the game when they drafted him with the seventh overall pick in that loaded ’09 draft.
Curry’s career actually got off to a bit of a shaky start, notably when ankle issues began to loom large in his third season.
Just two years later, however, Curry made his first All-Star team. He was MVP and led the Dubs to an NBA title one year later. It was off to the races from there. Curry was named unanimous league MVP during the 2015-16 and set the NBA world on fire with his long-range exploits. He truly has become a transcendent figure in the history of the game, though these next few years will be as challenging as ever.
Curry’s 2019-20 season was ruined by a broken hand suffered in the fourth game of the season. Now, he must lead a young Warriors team that will be without Klay Thompson for the entirety of the 2020-21 campaign after the other “Splash Brother” suffered an Achilles injury on draft night.
Golden State will need Curry to channel every bit of his youthful energy as the Dubs hope to get back to the playoffs in a brutal Western Conference.
