If you're on this site and don't know who Steph Curry is, God bless you.
Regardless, I'll give you the 30-second elevator pitch as a refresher.
Curry's journey began on March 14, 1988, when he came into this world as Wardell Stephen Curry II. Widely celebrated as one of the basketball greats, and specifically hailed as the NBA's finest shooter ever, Curry's impact on the sport goes beyond records and titles. He's credited with revolutionizing basketball by inspiring teams and players alike to embrace the long-range three-point shot.
Hailing from a sports-oriented family, Curry's parents are Dell Curry, a former NBA player, and Sonya Curry, who played volleyball at Virginia Tech. Interestingly, his younger brother, Seth, also follows in his footsteps as an NBA player. While born in Akron, Ohio, Curry spent most of his formative years growing up in Charlotte, North Carolina.
During his college days, Curry showcased his exceptional talent while playing for the Davidson Wildcats. He left an indelible mark on the school and the Southern Conference by setting career scoring records. Notably, he earned the title of conference player of the year twice and, during his sophomore year, set an impressive single-season NCAA record for the highest number of three-pointers made. His achievements at the collegiate level foreshadowed the incredible success he would achieve on the professional stage.
In the 2009 NBA draft, Curry was selected by the Golden State Warriors as the seventh overall pick. Since then, he's been a nine-time all star, won four NBA championships, and twice been selected as the NBA's Most Valuable Player (MVP).
Back in 2021, Aaron Rodgers shared his love of reading during a weekly interview with Pat McAfee. What started as a simple suggestion turned into a weekly "I wonder what Aaron's going to recommend next?"
Rodgers would go on to recommend 28 total books (plus a bonus coloring book) over a two-year stretch. For anyone looking to gain a deeper insight into the mind of one of the NFL's most elite quarterbacks, this list alone is proof of both Rodgers' introspective view of life, along with his diverse interests.
The 28 books below are listed in order based on when they were recommended, starting with Aaron's first recommendation, The Alchemist.
