NBA's Stephen Curry Takes it to the Hoop at SJND
Students tweeted and Instagrammed the news: Stephen Curry of the Warriors was in the house!
Curry was on campus to shoot a magazine cover for
Slam magazine and to film a commercial for Under Armour. The photo session was set up by SJND alum Kris Stone '91, director of basketball marketing for Under Armour.
"This gym is a great place to film," said Stone, who played on the 1991 state championship team with friend Jason Kidd '92. "It looks amazing, and it holds a lot of great memories."
Students who waited until 9 p.m. to see Curry were rewarded when he came out to play a pick-up game with them in the school yard and to sign autographs. "He's just a great guy, a role model," said Chris Pondok, SJND athletic director.
