Steph Curry gets fined by his mother for turnovers


Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry name is at the top of this seasons’ MVP candidates. But that doesn’t mean he’s above being challenged by his mother.

Sonya Curry isn’t a fan of her son getting turnovers.  Steph’s turnover percentage on his possessions is 14.7 but Mrs. Curry is about efficiency. She fines Steph if he gets more than three turnovers in a game!

Sonya came up with the idea of fining her son a few seasons ago, frustrated at watching him lose the ball too many times in one game. She checked with her husband, former NBA guard Dell, on what would be a reasonable number of turnovers to hold Stephen to per game; they settled on three. Anything more than that, he owes his mother: $100 per giveaway. Anything under is subtracted from his total.

At the end of the season, Curry doesn’t write his mother a check; she just lets him know — usually through his wife, Ayesha — what fashion items she has had her eye on.

“It keeps me on the edge every game,” he said. “I know she’s going to text me or have some witty one-liner about what she’s going to buy with all of my gifts.”

I love it! See, sports and fashion can come together in so may ways. Sonya Curry is also a fan favorite. In 2013, cameras panned to BOTH Mrs. Currys during the playoffs, and it was a moment that caused Twitter to explode.
