Wardell Stephen "Dell" Curry I is an American former professional basketball player. He played in the National Basketball Association (NBA) from 1986 until 2002 and retired as the Charlotte Hornets' all-time leader in points (9,839) and three-point field goals made (929). 

Curry works as a color commentator, alongside Eric Collins and Stephanie Ready, on Charlotte Hornets television broadcasts. He is the father of NBA players Stephen Curry and Seth Curry.

In 2004, Curry was inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame.

On June 18, 2007, Curry was named an assistant coach of the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats, but he stepped down before the season began so that he could attend his sons' basketball games.

In 2009, Curry started working as a color commentator, alongside longtime play-by-play announcer Steve Martin, for the Charlotte Bobcats (now Charlotte Hornets).

In 2016, Curry was the recipient of the Bobby Jones Award at the Athletes in Action All Star Breakfast, which is held each year at the NBA All Star Weekend.

Curry lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, with his wife Sonya (née Adams), who played volleyball at Virginia Tech, where they met; the couple have three children. His older son, Stephen, plays in the NBA for the Golden State Warriors. In 2014–15, Stephen won the NBA MVP award and led the Warriors to the NBA championship, and in 2015–16, he led his team to the highest regular season win total in NBA history with 73 wins, once again being voted league MVP. Younger son Seth currently plays for the Portland Trail Blazers, while daughter, Sydel, played volleyball at Elon University. Curry has four grandchildren—Riley, Ryan, Carter, and Canon Curry. Sydel is married to NBA player Damion Lee.

In 1998, Curry established a charitable foundation, the Dell Curry Foundation, which is a youth oriented program in Charlotte, North Carolina. The foundation runs five learning centers in Charlotte to provide educational training and drug abuse counseling. Source.
