CHARLOTTE, NC - Steph Curry's been here before. The former Charlotte Christian and Davidson basketball star returns to his hometown Monday for a fifth time, when Golden State meets the Charlotte Bobcats at Time Warner Cable Arena.
Curry currently ranks ninth in the NBA in scoring at just under 23 points per game.
He says he always looks forward to coming back to Charlotte and that the process has gotten a little easier with age.
"When it comes to the whole process, ticket requests to how my schedule's gonna go, you get in a routine," Curry said. "Obviously it's about being ready to play come 7:00 tonight, but enjoying family time and some of the things that come with being back home."
Curry helped Davidson to a deep NCAA Tournament run in 2008, before the Wildcats eventually lost to National Champion Kansas. He still holds multiple Davidson school scoring records.
The former seventh overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft is finally fully health, after missing significant time due to right ankle injuries and subsequent surgeries the past few seasons.
Golden State is currently 12-9 on the season. Tip off at Time Warner Cable Arena is set for 7:00.
