'I wanted to be like a father': Steph Curry reveals secret from the past | Israel Hayom


Highlights: Steph Curry reveals he used to borrow his father's size 49 basketball shoes. The Golden State Warriors star says he got used to the feeling of floating in them. Curry says he stopped the practice after he saw the front of his shoe bent. He is now a size 47 and says he hasn't felt the effects of the size difference on his game. He says he still had a good career with couples who were too big. The interview with is available on YouTube.

Even the biggest stars want to resemble their parents, with the Golden State superstar it was expressed in a somewhat strange way • "I would take his shoes, even though they were big on me"

Almost everyone wants to be a bit like their dad, especially if your dad is a successful NBA player. So it doesn't hurt that Steph Curry also wanted a bit like a dad. What's a little more surprising is what he did for it.

The superstar revealed in an interview with theComplexYouTube channel that when he started out in the basketball world, he used to "borrow" his basketball shoes from his father, even though they were several sizes bigger than him: "During his career, my dad played with 49 on his feet, when I was young I had big legs, and I convinced myself that I too was a size 49 so that I could ask all his best pairs and be similar to him. I convinced myself that it was good and then I got used to the feeling of floating in them. Until the end of my first NBA season, I always played with a size 49 even though I am a size 47.

As is well known, during his career, Curry suffered quite a few ankle injuries, and his ancient practice may have influenced his ankle's ability to withstand pressure day after day. Kerry went on to explain why he stopped the practice: "Then one day I saw a picture of me attacking the basket, and the whole front of my shoe was bent. From the beginning I'm a size 47 and since then I've been back to that size, I haven't really felt the effects on my game, my legs just hovered. I still had a good career with couples who were too big.
