Surprise! Stephen Curry returns to Sacramento area to play in local pickup games

Local hoopers at a Lifetime Fitness in Folsom were met with a pleasant surprise over the weekend.

While in town for his daughter’s volleyball tournament, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry stopped by the local gym to join afternoon pickup games, unbeknownst to anyone on the court.

The 10-time NBA All-Star, two-time MVP and four-time NBA champion didn’t change his playing style or his personality even though the competition was far from pro level.

In one video, Curry was seen hitting the game-winning shot and breaking out his infamous “night-night” celebration.

Damarion Vann-Kelly, a 2024 graduate of Monterey Trail High School and former member of the school’s basketball team, shared the court with Curry on Saturday afternoon. He called it an “unreal moment” on X/Twitter.

Curry was accompanied by former Warrior and 12-year NBA veteran Kent Bazemore.

“It’s all about community,” Bazemore said in a video posted to YouTube. “You got the Steph Curry experience.”

Curry led Golden State to a 46-36 record and a 10th-place finish in the Western Conference. The Warriors’ season ended in the play-in tournament when Golden State lost to its NorCal rival Sacramento Kings.

Curry, 36, will be entering his 16th NBA season when he takes the court in the fall. He will be competing at the Olympics in Paris next month as a member of USA Basketball.
