Steph Curry asked to go to Duke just as a walk-on, but the team denied him entry because the coach said they were “full” and would be returning next year.

Duke’s team that year found themselves in the NCAA Tournament as the 6th seed, where they would lose in the first round to VCU.

An article written by Alex Kennedy of Basketball News outlines Dell Curry’s comments regarding the situation. Dell Curry said:

“I just didn’t pass the eye test, I want to go to Duke, I want to go to Virginia Tech”

According to his father, Steph was not considered a great competitor to either school. It was then that he ended up joining Davidson.

Curry was hoping to show up for school, according to Rex Chapman and Dell Curry, but the Blue Devils didn’t take it

Curry, on the other hand, ended up joining Davidson where he had a superb first season. Steph finished averaging 21.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game. He shot 40.8 percent from 3-point range, averaging 3.6 3s per game.

Duke missed Steph Curry

Steph Curry played three seasons with Davidson before declaring for the draft. Needless to say, Duke arguably missed. Rex Chapman said:

“At the end of that year, everyone in the country wanted Stephen.”

Duke almost immediately regretted their decision as they showed great interest in Steph after her freshman year in college. But it seems Steph’s loyalty has run deep for a long time now, as he stayed with Davidson because of their trust in him.

Dell described what Steph told him:

“Dad, if they didn’t want me then, I don’t want them now. F*** ’em, I’m staying at Davidson.

Steph Curry was selected with the seventh overall pick in the 2009 draft by the Golden State Warriors and has remained with the franchise ever since. Plus, there wasn’t even a mention of Steph Curry playing anywhere else.

Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have also been with the Warriors for a long time. The dedication of the three players is a huge reason for their four championships together.

It looks like Steph Curry’s longtime loyalty has paid off. The four-time champion blazed his own path in the league, becoming the all-time leader in 3-pointers made. Duke missed.

However, they didn’t completely miss out as they got Seth Curry, Steph’s brother, on a trade in 2009. Seth Curry played for Duke for three seasons and averaged 13.2 points per game in 106 games.
