SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The next NBA season may be three months away, but that didn’t stop Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry from putting on a show on the basketball court Wednesday night.
Fans packed Kezar Pavilion to see Curry play in the San Francisco Pro-Am Summer Basketball League.
Curry led his team to victory by scoring 43 points, and made nine three-pointers in Wednesday night’s contest. During the last NBA season, Curry averaged 24 points per game.
According to Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group, Curry was mobbed by fans after the game.
The pro-am league has been in operation since 1979 and features a mix of professional, college, high school and recreation players.
According to the league’s website, there are no tryouts and players can be added anytime during the season. Past NBA players that have played in the league include Jason Kidd, Gary Payton, and Jeremy Lin.
In just five seasons in Oakland Curry has become the face of the franchise. But is he the most popular Bay Area athlete out there?
