One can never predict the future, and thus, one should never put their full “trust” into any single individual. Still, we can stop and appreciate the good character we presently see in some people these days, on and off the baseball field, hockey rink, basketball court, etc. One player who has shown particular exemplary character as of late has been Stephen Curry (#13 FCIR), considered by many to be the best player currently in the NBA. Those who know him well say he’s as down-to-earth as anyone you could meet, even when it comes to moving his own stuff from one house to another.
He’s unbelievable, Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton (#6 BEIR) said. He made a comment the other day about it being too soon, if he ever saw another cardboard box, and I was thinking, What superstar has anything to do with his own move?
Although, like any superstar, he tries to avoid fans, when one happens to spot him it’s difficult for Curry to say no. Recently, as he walked out a different door and headed for the team’s hotel across the street, a fan noticed him and called his name. Curry stopped in the road, and “walked back toward the fans and signed autographs.”
He doesn’t act like a superstar, swingman Brandon Rush (#5 FEIR) said. He doesn’t let all of that stardom go to his head, and it’s fun to be around a guy like that. He’s not stuck on himself, and he still plays unselfish ball. It’s good to have a superstar player like that.
After a double-overtime win in Boston weeks ago, “most of his teammates headed for their hotel beds,” but “an exhausted Curry stayed outside the hotel in the cold to take photos and sign autographs for a group of fans.”
Of course, Curry strongly claims the Christian faith, as you can see him point to the sky after every made 3-point shot. I know why I play the game, and it’s not to score 30 points a night, but it’s to use the stage I’m on. I’ve been put here for a specific purpose: to be a witness and to share my testimony as I go through it. Says former coach Mark Jackson (#6 BEIR), He’s the type of guy you look at and say, That’s how I want my son to be. It’s a great testament to who he is and the God he serves. He comes from a great background and has a great foundation. I made sure to go to his parents and thank them for the way they raised him.”
Keep it up, Stephen. The weight of the world is certainly on his shoulders, and only by keeping his eyes above will he remain “a witness” and “a testimony.”
