After seeing his Golden State Warriors teammate get worked over by a high schooler earlier this week, Stephen Curry just had to step in and re-establish Dubs dominance over all of America’s 18-and-under ballers. Curry invited some of the best high school basketball players in the country to join his SC30 Select Camp in Walnut Creek, California, this week.
As part of the camp, Curry stepped onto the court and scrimmaged with some of the participants, mercilessly owning a few of them in the process, joined by his brother, Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry.
Among those in attendance: Silvio De Sousa, a class of 2018 power forward with offers from Maryland, Kansas, Florida, and Florida State; class of 2019 shooting guard Scottie Lewis, who’s deciding between Kentucky, Kansas, Maryland, Villanova, and Florida; and West Virginia commit Jordan McCabe, the point guard wearing No. 1 in the video above who doesn’t back down from Curry.
The group also worked on fundamentals.

After signing a record-setting $201 million deal this offseason, Curry took the occasion of his camp to reveal he’s going to focus more of his time on contributing to the community.
“I don’t want to get too deep into it but for the last couple years trying to figure out how I can make the most impact off the court on a consistent and impactful basis,” he said on Monday at SC30 Select Camp. “Going forward and obviously keying in on the Bay Area specifically to hopefully leave a lasting impact for all the good that has happened in my life and my family here since I’ve been here the last eight years. Obviously over the next five to really impact the community for the better and use my platform, not only just dollars but my platform and connections and ideas to make that happen. The contract puts more of a responsibility to make that happen and I’m obviously aware of that. And I have a great team around me that’s going to help me do that.”
I’ve got an idea for a first step: taking his hideous Under Armour shoes off the market before they burn out any more eyeballs.
