Steph Curry Reveals Wild Prank Warriors Vet Played On Him As Rookie

Warriors star Stephen Curry is a two-time NBA MVP and three-time NBA champion. But, let’s not forget that he was a rookie, too.

The Warrior was in Lake Tahoe for the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament last week. He talked to Chris Simms of NBA Sports on “Unbuttoned,” and shared the prank he had as a rookie.

“I had a vet when I was a rookie — I had my phone, mind you I’m dating my now wife at the time and I’m going on a road trip so I need my phone obviously — we had finished practice and we were headed to the airport, and he knew where my phone was.

“He knew I always put it in this little pocket in my backpack. So after practice, I go get in the shower and put my phone in there. I’m kind of late so I’m hustling. He knows after I get out the shower I’m probably not gonna grab my phone.

“Take my phone, locks it in his locker. I get all the way to the airport and realize I don’t have my phone. I get off the plane in Oklahoma City, not only did he make me leave my phone at home so I had to go to the store to get another one, he sent me on basically a two-hour errand run to go get video games and snacks.

“This is before Uber or Lyft so I’m in the yellow cab and paying for everything. That’s just a headache.”

So, who did this to him? Anthony Tolliver, Corey Maggette, Ronny Turiaf, Mikki Moore or Vladimir Radmanovic, and Devean George are some of the names that popped in my mind. Curry didn’t reveal the name of the veteran, and didn’t say if it was the Dubs’ first or second game in Oklahoma City that season.

On Dec. 7, Curry had 22 points, two assists, four steals and five turnovers in a 104-88 loss. On Jan. 31, Curry registered 14 points, five assists and five turnovers in a 112-104 loss.

This prank is still wrapped in mystery, but it sure is a nice way to remember a hilarious rookie season.
