Stephen Curry Explains How Allen Iverson "Inspired" Him

Stephen Curry is rewriting how the guard position is supposed to be played in the NBA by a guy that’s not the biggest, strongest or fastest player on the court.

Before Curry was rewriting the NBA, "The Answer" Allen Iverson destroyed everything in his way, inspiring a new wave of NBA guards who were set to come.

“He was a guy I loved watching, just his entertainment value and knowing his story,” Curry told Jessica Camerato of CSN Philly.

“It was inspiring just to know that you can defy a lot of odds and be yourself while you’re out there on the court playing and changing the game. Everybody used to imitate his crossover moves, obviously starting with the one on (Michael) Jordan and every other one that he did in his career.”

Iverson averaged 33.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 3.1 steals in 46.0 minutes in the 2001 playoffs, where a young Steph Curry watched AI destroy the Toronto Raptors and his father, Dell Curry.
