Recently, Carmelo Anthony shared a fascinating story about Steph Curry on his podcast, “7PM in Brooklyn”. Anthony revealed that the Baby Faced Assassin would often attend his workouts, even when he was in college, and he would intently observe and learn from the unorthodox training methods.

Steph used to come to the workouts. I would never let people in the workout. I never wanted guys that I had to go up against to know what I was doing. At this time, we talking about even in college going into NBA. My first couple years, I'm in the gym, CP is coming out of college. CP brings Steph to the workouts. I'm watching Steph, he's just studying like all the sh**… Then we would play one-on-one. I saw everything that we we're seeing in college when he was at Davidson and made that run in the tournament. All of that up, close and personal.

Furthermore, Anthony went on to describe how Curry would participate in one-on-ones with him, where he showcased the same skills that made him a standout player at Davidson College. Also, Curry’s impressive performance in the NCAA tournament during his time at Davidson was a testament to his hard work and talent.

Curry has continued to impress, as he averaged 26.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game while shooting 45.0% from the field and 40.8% from three-point range in 74 games in the just-concluded regular season. This has cemented his status as one of the all-time greats, and stories like Anthony’s only add to his legendary status.
