Stephen Curry - underdog to ultimate

Sharp-shooting Stephen Curry may be sitting atop the world as NBA champ and MVP, but he knows he owes it all to Jesus as his personal Savior.

The Golden State Warriors and their fans celebrated the team's first NBA title in 40 years with a parade Friday in Oakland. The party in the Bay Area has been ongoing since the Warriors took the title by beating the Cleveland Cavilers on the road Tuesday in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Golden State was led all year long by league MVP Stephen Curry, who shared his faith in Christ during the MVP award ceremony last month.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes highlighted Curry's story in the March/April 2013 issue of FCA Magazine. Editor Clay Meyer tells OneNewsNow it's been quite a ride for the point guard out of little Davidson College in North Carolina.

"Just this ultimate, I guess, kind of like underdog story that he went from [being] this no-name kind of kid – even though his dad [Del Curry] was in the NBA – to now being able to share his faith on the ultimate of all stages is just awesome to get to see from our perspective," the journalist shares.

Meyer says the 6-foot-3 Curry has had a huge impact on the team.

"It's other teammates and coaches who are on the Warriors now that are all believers and are being led by this guy who is so humble but yet so talented," he explains. "And he knows that his faith is really what carries him through the ups and downs of an NBA season."

Meyer says Curry doesn't take for granted the platform that God has given him.
