Dell Curry, Stephen's father, played in the NBA for 16 seasons.
But he could have chosen a different path.
Dell played basketball and baseball at Virginia Tech and was selected by the Orioles in the 14th round of the 1985 MLB Draft, but did not sign with Baltimore.
He stuck with hoops and was chosen by the Utah Jazz with the 15th overall pick in 1986.
Dell played the 2001-02 season for Toronto, and this past weekend, a 2002 episode of "Off the Hardwood" with Paul Jones surfaced on YouTube.
In the video, 14-year old Stephen is asked if he and his brother, Seth, play baseball.
"We played baseball a lot when we were in Charlotte," Stephen explained. "Played for about four or five years. Never got into pitching, but played everything else. I liked it but I was more interested in basketball at the time."
The Warriors must be pleased with Stephen's decision, as Golden State (37-8) is off to the best start in franchise history.
The 26-year old point guard was named Second-Team All-NBA last season and will start in the All-Star Game for the second straight year.
Dell actually made one professional baseball appearance on June 21, 1991 with the Gastonia Rangers.
At the time, Dell was playing for the Charlotte Hornets, who were owned by George Shinn -- the same man who owned the Rangers.
A right-handed pitcher, Dell started and allowed three hits, a walk and a run over three innings.
Muggsy Bogues, Dell's teammate with the Hornets, also appeared in the game. He played second base and struck out twice.
Who knows how good a baseball player Stephen could have become, but it's probably fair to say he made the right choice to stick with basketball.
"It was more my sport. I was kinda better at it. And I wanted to practice some more on it and try to make it to the pros if I have the chance."
No word on if Stephen is planning to appear in a Single-A game for the Giants or A's in the near future.
