The 2009 NBA Draft was a big one for the Golden State Warriors.
14 years ago, they used the No. 7 overall pick to select a point guard from Davidson named Stephen Curry.
A lot has happened since that moment, with Curry becoming one of the best players in the league.

Kinda amazing he actually stayed at one team. Fee like that doesn’t happen much in sports anymore let alone basketball

Funny how one pick of the draft changed the future for 3 teams. Who knows what happens if Minn picks him. Same with the future of all 3 teams if GSW doesn't draft him and falls to NYK.

Coming into the league, Curry was considered a good player, but nobody imagined he would be this good.
The legendary point guard changed the way the game is played, turning the NBA into a 3-point-driven league with his incredible shots.
14 years after the Warriors made that historical call, Curry is the all-time 3-point leader in NBA history and is considered by many as the greatest shooter of all time.
He’s one of the most influential players in NBA history, becoming a big legend while winning four NBA championships, two NBA MVPs, and one Finals MVP.
At age 35, he’s not slowing down. Curry is the main reason why the Warriors are title candidates season after season.
During his 14-season stint with the team, Curry has posted 24.6 points, 6.5 assists, and 4.7 rebounds.
He’s a nine-time All-Star and nine-time All-NBA.
When he first made it to the league, nobody thought Curry would be this good, but he has proved his doubters wrong.NEXT: Draymond Green Had An Honest Admission About Chris Paul In 2020
