Stephen Curry has experienced an explosion in his career over the past couple of seasons, leading the Warriors to last year’s NBA Finals victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, winning the NBA’s coveted MVP award, named Sports Illustrated‘s Sportsman of the Year for 2015, leading the Warriors to a record 73 regular season wins and exploding into the record books this season making an unprecedented 402 three-pointers during the regular season.

The list of charities in which he participates is longer than the lines awaiting those autographs. – CSNBayArea.com’s Monte Poole
