Stephen Curry played in and helped put on the Curry Celebrity Classic Monday, a golf tournament that benefits the Ada Jenkins Center. I wanted to go. But I wrote about Stephen and golf a couple weeks ago.
Whenever I write about Stephen, I get two reactions. The first is: Great guy, great player. The second is: You're writing about Curry again?
I'm biased. I feel as if I know three Currys -- Stephen, his father Dell and Dell's sister Jackie. I've interviewed Dell's son, Stephen's brother and Jackie's nephew Seth. But I don't know him. He is the least talkative of the Currys.
I like all Currys, and I like writing about them. Every city has first family of a specific sport, and the Currys are Charlotte's first family of basketball.
They have something to say -- Seth in fewer words -- and they say it well. And there's no pretension.
I don't mind the Curry overkill backlash. I'd rather be criticized by readers than not be read.
But going to the golf tournament Monday felt like too much.
Besides, I plan to write about Seth before the NBA draft.
