Stephen (Steph) Curry is an American basketball athlete who currently plays for the Golden State Warriors. Due to his high playing ability, which has included leading his team to success, he is often used in jokes on the internet.


Although he comes from an athletic family with many other basketball players (both of his siblings are professionals as well), Stephen Curry wasn't heavily recruited in high school, and attended Davidson University, in North Carolina.[1] At Davidson, he broke many scoring records, including the Division I scoring record, and was thought of as one of the best in the NCAA.[2] He was drafted 7th overall to the Golden State Warriors, where he became a franchise player, including leading the 2014-2015 Warriors to win the championship, and earning an MVP that year, as well. His number is #30. He is a two-time NBA All-Star.


Three Pointers

Due to his critically acclaimed mastery[3] at scoring three pointers from highly improbable distances, Curry's three-point throws have become a popular subject of memes among his fans and earned him several nicknames, such as "The Sniper," "Greatest Shooter Ever," and "Chef Curry."


Meth Curry

On December 24th, 2015, a comparison meme began appearing on Twitter with a photograph of Steph Curry next to a photograph of another, more emaciated looking man. The photos were often captioned "Meth Curry," implying that the other man was actually a photograph of Steph Curry on meth.[4] On January 6th, 2015, Australia reported that the man in the second photograph was actually a Tacoma, Washington resident named Leon Mitchell, who had survived a type of cancer that had damaged his neck and face.[5] In an Instagram post, Mitchell wrote that "the meme was posted was a reminder of how distasteful and cruel people can be without background knowledge of the person in the bullseye of the target.[6] I've struggled deeply for years with the devastating effects cancer treatment plagued my body with." He maintained that he would have the strength to not let the meme bother him, but that others might not be so lucky. His post was liked over 77,800 times. [7]

The fact that the meme was posted was a reminder of how distasteful and cruel people can be without background knowledge of the person in the bullseye of the target. I've struggled deeply for years with the devastating effects cancer treatment plagued my body with. The massive destruction it took on my neck, shoulders, nose, throat, and ability to function normally. I though have overcome all of those things and become so much stronger then the after effects of cancer treatment, and proudly bare myself and ravaged appearance to the world with KNOE shame!! I am strong enough to endure these attacks after years of rebuilding. However as we look at the power story I explain, let's remember these types of social media attacks on people can THE SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS OWNER TH ER Add a comment... SURVIVOR

I never really found these memes that mock the appearance of your average everyday people funny. Its uncalled for and they do have feelings as is the case with Mr. Knoe.
