It can be remembered that Curry's name became most popular after showing great moves during the NBA season 2014-15 with his team the Golden State Warriors. The season was concluded with Warriors besting all of the other teams and with Curry being declared as the season's MVP. After this win, Curry went on with several product endorsements and other engagements but it is good to see that he is not letting them be a hindrance to keeping up his game. In his rose to fame, however, he did not forget to give credit to his "inspiration".
In his statement to CNSNews.com, he mentioned that "he gave his life to Christ" and that God is his inspiration, and it is also God who made a way for him to his career now. He sees that God has a plan for him all along. In the same article, he then went on to say that "God is his driving force".
The Warriors head coach, Mark Jackson, became a big influence on Curry and his team. Jackson is also a believer and a pastor of a congregation in Southern California. Curry believes that this is God's way for him to influence more people and touch people's lives. His belief drives him that even in his product endorsements he wanted to glorify God. He did so by featuring a Bible verse on his new shoes endorsement, Under Armour, that says "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13)". As BillyGraham.org described Curry, "he is a guy that when you look at, you would want your son to be like him".
This season's NBA, may he touch more lives for God.
