They ain't necessarily wrong...

Did we even recruit Curry? If not, why not? If so, why didn't we get him? I want the REAL story, not another Lutz myth.

Don't get me wrong guys, I love bobby, but this is a weird situation.   Color me suspicious. Don't appreciate the chapel hill hypocrites though. Have they read the news in the last 7 years??

His new administrative duties with the basketball program will include assistance with the personal and academic development, housing arrangements, planning and logistics associated with the team’s upcoming foreign tour and other special projects.

So, he's team mom.
Yes but getting paid well to do it. 

Many moons ago heard Lutz say on a local sports radio show, Del told him Steph was not interested in coming to Charlotte.

Lutz did look at Curry but told the HS staff that he liked his guards to be "bigger" (as in stronger) and never offered a schollie.  That is the truth as I know it from a very reliable guy that's son was a HS teammate of Curry.  Graduated same year as Curry

Also...................... very few good D1 programs wanted Curry back then.  McKillop hit the jackpot, just like Bill Foster did when he signed some guy named Cedric.

Not quite right. Curry had ONE (yes ONE D1 scholarship offer----Davidson). He also had an offer to be a "preferred walk-on" at Va. Tech (Dell's alma mater). Cornbread had other offers besides Charlotte (not any real BIG names, but some other offers). McKillop basically won the lottery, he (or no one else) had ANY idea Curry would turn out like he has. There was a reason no one else offered. By all accounts, he was not really D1 material.

The Steph Curry recruiting story might be the biggest dead horse on NNN.  Mostly it's an opportunity for people to take a shot at Lutz.


To add to what 919R posted, both Dell and Steph said that Seth was a better player in HS than Steph was.  Yet Seth only received a scholarship to Liberty. 


After leading the nation in scoring and a First Team All American selection, Steph wasn't selected until #7 in the NBA draft.  That was behind Ricky Rubio and Johnny Flynn.


Bottom line, since his recruitment in HS, Steph Curry grew and has gotten better every year.  He is constantly proving everyone wrong.  He just did it again this season, by the Warriors having the best single season in NBA history.  No one predicted that would happen.

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

He also benefits from a rise in advanced analytics that tell players to shoot more 3 pointers. Three pointers are up across the board at every level of the game. Way up.

Sorry, I didn't resort to "googling. I can only tell you what I have heard MANY times from multiple people, including Dell. Maybe it was "major" college offers and or some of these may have come after he verballed to Davidson. IDK. Point being, NO ONE thought he even had the potential to come close to doing what he has done. Sorry, you apparently didn't follow these things very closely when they were actually occurring ......stick to Googling. Makes you seem really smart. Good job.

You are the one that stated only 1 D1 offer, which is wrong. He had no HM offers.

The googled page of Curry offers lists him as a 3 star recruit FWIW.

Pardon me for repeating what I have heard many times. I have a hard time believing some of you never heard this stated publically before. Maybe it was wrong or an exaggeration but has been said many times. From here forward I will refer all recruiting info to the next Dave Telep.

I don't think that's right, Seth Curry had more opportunities. I remember it being kind of surprising when he chose Liberty, given his other options. But maybe the other schools pulled their scholarship offers once it became apparent he was going elsewhere (happens a lot). I'm pretty sure Davidson offered him, and I think VT gave him an offer at some point (maybe it was late in the game?).

I agree about Stephen Curry, most programs missed his potential, I don't hold that against Lutz much at all, other than being a little surprised Lutz wasn't interested in taking a flyer on him because he was such a gunner.

That's the thing, he wasn't as much of a gunner in HS.  He's gotten better and better every year. 


Plus, he was a 6'1" and 160lbs SG.  He didn't start playing PG until his Jr season at Davidson.  There's just not that many SGs, with Steph's physical build, that had been successful.   

I think Normmm was probably right all along, we'll be really good next year.

Who would have known Stef would turn out to be one of the best shooters of all time? In college he looked like a 7th grader. It was hard to take him seriously.

You seem to have some strange obsession with me. Actually, I rarely "point out when others are wrong". You are the only one on here that I have had multiple "issues" with and each time, it involved you taking unsolicited personal shots at me. Its like you wait around and read my posts just waiting to "jump in" when you think I am wrong about something. Congrats, I hope you feel good about that. Its a freakin' message boards, for OPINIONS. Get over yourself. If you have anything else to attack me on, just PM me please.
