His dad was kind of the same way - grounded, but wonderfully skilled at gauging the space he needed and quick on the release: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMqpGkyO4rk

Sidenote, somehow I never realized before now that Stephen Curry is technically Dell Curry Jr. Both his full name and that of his father is Wardell Stephen Curry. Don't know how I missed that.

I never saw that either.
