Steph Curry

How Steph hilariously almost ruined Davidson recruitment

NBC Universal, Inc.

Steph Curry's disciplined upbringing could have changed everything for the NBA superstar.

The Warriors guard recently revealed in his "Stephen Curry: Underrated" documentary, which will be released Friday on Apple TV+, that he almost accidentally ghosted his Davidson College coach and nearly ruined his chances of attending the institution.

Curry sat down with TODAY Show host Hoda Kotb to talk about his highly anticipated documentary and shared what led up to that frantic moment. The four-time NBA champ explained that Davidson coach Bob McKillop tried to reach out to Curry multiple times but never heard back. McKillop grew concerned that Curry would go to another college.

So, what happened?

Curry explained to his soon-to-be coach that his mom Sonya took his phone away for 10 days. Why?

"Not handling my business at home. The priorities," Curry said. "We had a very disciplined house with chores and making sure we understood that playing basketball was a privilege."

On top of not doing his chores, Sonya had additional reasoning behind her actions.

Apparently, Curry had received -- not sent -- a text message with a curse word in it, and mama Curry was not a fan.

It's clear that the Curry household had its set of rules that had to be followed -- or else. Curry surely learned his lesson, and it paid off in the long run.
