I know all my fellow athletes and basketball fans out there are going to be hyped for this one. The man himself, the baby-faced assassin, and THE CHEF is finally gracing us with his highly anticipated documentary – Stephen Curry: Underrated.
For those of you familiar with the NBA world, you automatically understood the context surrounding this documentary when you saw “Underrated”. Coming into the league Curry was a short, skinny kid from Davidson who (according to the scouting report) was unreliable and would basically be a liability to whoever drafted him because all he could do was shoot. He was drafted No. 7 overall regardless of the scouting report because he really was that good.
Now, 13 years later, he’s one of the greatest players of all time, the greatest shooter the game has ever seen, and one of the most decorated players this sport has seen. He’s won them all and won them multiple times. But even after that, there are still a few people who don’t give him the flowers he deserves, who still “Underrate” him. But the one thing he does is show them time after time that he is one the greatest and will continue to be as long as his legs will carry him. As he said in a recent post promoting this documentary:
“Don’t prove them wrong, prove yourself right.”
The official synopsis for the documentary goes:
“The remarkable coming-of-age story of one of the most influential, dynamic, and unexpected players in the history of basketball: Stephen Curry. This feature documentary — blending intimate cinéma vérité, archival footage, and on-camera interviews — documents Curry’s rise from an undersized college player at a small-town Division I college to a four-time NBA champion, building one of the most dominant sports dynasties in the world.”
Stephen Curry: Underrated releases on the 21st of July exclusively on Apple TV+. Come and witness the greatness that is Stephen Curry, his journey to the top, and how he has carved his name into the very existence of this beautiful sport we call basketball.
