Learn the Incredible Story of Basketball Superstar Stephen Curry! Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device! In Stephen Curry: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Sharpest Shooters, you'll read about the inspirational story of one of basketball's premier point guards Stephen Curry. Stephen Curry has had an electrifying five-year career playing in the National Basketball Association. In this short Stephen Curry biography, we will learn about how Steph became the star point guard that he is today. Starting first with his childhood and early life, we'll learn about Steph Curry prior to entering the NBA, his time in the NBA, along with his impact on the communities of Davidson College and Golden State. Steph Curry's success is not an accident. Steph Curry has transformed the Golden State Warriors franchise, spearheading the Warriors in the 2013-2014 NBA season to their second consecutive playoff birth. While the Warriors ultimately fell to the Clippers in Game 7, an exciting future presents itself for Golden State as the organization extended Klay Thompson's contract to keep the Splash Brothers together for several more years to come. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Early Life and Childhood High School Years of Steph Curry Steph's Davidson College Years 2009 NBA Draft Curry's NBA Career Steph's Selection to the 2014 All-Star Game Steph Curry's Personal Life Impact on Basketball and Beyond Steph Curry's Legacy An excerpt from the book: The first game was played against Gonzaga. The team was losing by as many as eleven points at the start of the second half, but Curry put on a heroic performance managing to score thirty points in the second half. This gave the Wildcats their first win in a NCAA tournament since 1969. Something similar happened in the second round as well. Curry was limited to five points in the first half against heavy favorites Georgetown and his team was trailing by seventeen points at one point. Curry managed to score twenty-five points in the second half, helping his team advance to the next round. Georgetown was the second seeded team in the nation that year. The whole nation noticed Curry's talent as the Wildcats lost to the top seeded Kansas Jayhawks after winning another battle versus third seeded Wisconsin. Curry managed to break several records in the process including: most three pointers in a season and joined an elite group of players to score more than 30 points in their first four games of a NCAA tournament. Stephen Curry made sure that Davidson's name would not be forgotten in the near future with his performances over his three years there. Now Curry has transferred his work ethic, attitude towards the game, and personal values into his NBA career. The future looks bright for Steph Curry at the age of twenty-five as he has already left a significant legacy at Davidson College and in the NBA as well. The holder of the record for total three pointers made in a regular season in the NBA and in the NCAA has a very optimistic future ahead of him. Steph Curry is emerging as one of the greatest point guards of the modern era. It will be exciting to see years from now how he will go down in the record books.

Kobe Bryant may be one of the youngest basketball players in the NBA, but no one would dare call him inexperienced. The son of Joe "Jellybean" Bryant, a former NBA player and star of various European teams, Kobe spent his childhood watching professional basketball.

His basketball education was unique - a combination of lessons on basic fundamentals, one-on-one games against his dad, and keen observation and analysis of the world's best players. Kobe learned his lessons well, and at age eighteen was given the chance to prove it when he was drafted into the NBA. Fresh out of high school, Kobe showed that he had the talent and the heart to make it in the pros.

It ought to be just a game, but basketball on the playgrounds of Coney Island is much more than that — for many young men it represents their only hope of escape from a life of crime, poverty, and despair. In The Last Shot, Darcy Frey chronicles the aspirations of four of the neighborhood’s most promising players. What they have going for them is athletic talent, grace, and years of dedication. But working against them are woefully inadequate schooling, family circumstances that are often desperate, and the slick, brutal world of college athletic recruitment. Incisively and compassionately written, The Last Shot introduces us to unforgettable characters and takes us into their world with an intimacy seldom seen in contemporary journalism. The result is a startling and poignant expose of inner-city life and the big business of college basketball.
