Dell Curry

NBA Legend & Broadcaster

One of the most respected NBA veterans and the patriarch of a famously athletic family, Dell Curry embodies the ideal role model with his athletic accomplishments and high character. After a successful college basketball career at Virginia Tech and a sixteen year long stint in the NBA, Dell continues to use sports as a means for giving back to his community and raising a successful family.
The first person in Virginia Tech basketball history to have their jersey number retired, Dell was named the 1986 Metro Conference Player of the Year and was a three time All-Metro Conference selection. Dell’s athletic success carried into his professional career with the Charlotte Hornets, where he still holds the franchise scoring record of 9,839 points in his career. The 1994 NBA 6th Man of the Year, Dell retired from playing professional basketball in 2002 and has since worked in the team’s front office and now serves as a commentator and analyst for CBS Charlotte.
Dell’s accomplishments with the Hornets were only the beginning of his impact on the Charlotte community. In 1998, Dell started the Dell Curry Foundation to provide living arrangements and life skill development to youth and young adults in need of guidance. Teaming up with Jay Bilas, Dell formed Athletes United for Youth in 1996 to provide at-risk youth in Charlotte with resources to become productive citizens. Through all of his efforts, Dell has launched five learning centers in Charlotte that provide mentoring, counseling, educational training, and help to those in need of self-improvement.
The legacy Dell has established is continuously expanding through his children. Dell and his wife, Sonya, have three children together. Dell’s oldest son, Stephen, is the star point guard for the Golden State Warriors, and now holds the NBA record for most three-pointers in one season. His other son, Seth, was an accomplished basketball player at Duke and is now following in his dad and brother’s footsteps and pursuing a professional basketball career. Dell’s youngest child and only daughter, Sydel, currently plays volleyball at Elon University, like her mother who played volleyball at Virginia Tech. Together with Stephen, Dell began the Curry Celebrity Classic golf tournament to benefit the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson, North Carolina.
The entire Curry family is known for their respectable charm , and with Dell leading the way, are setting the example for how athletics can bring a family together.
