Steph CurryHere’s how you know you’re really good at basketball: when you’re clowning the other team so thoroughly that your own father, out of sheer pity for the clownees, can’t bear to watch. A new Sports Illustrated profile on Steph Curry — from the upcoming May 25th issue — tells the story of a game in which the current MVP, then in eighth grade, “couldn’t miss” a shot. Steph’s father, former NBA sharpshooter Dell Curry, was there to witness all the carnage. Well, almost all of it.

“He scored 63 points that day, but his dad skipped the last 20 because he was in a hallway outside the gym. “All these people were coming in to see what was going on, and there was so much commotion, it seemed like he was never going to stop,” former NBA marksman Dell Curry recalls. “I had to get out of there. I felt bad for the other team. I couldn’t watch what he was doing to those kids.”
