I spent part of Monday with Stephen Curry, the former Davidson star who has a big summer going on. Curry was part of the Curry Celebrity Classic at River Run Golf Club in Davidson today -- the charity event that is raising $40,000 for the Ada Jenkins Center this year.
Curry, 23, isn't playing golf today, as his right ankle is in encased in a cast due to offseason ankle surgery. He goes into a walking boot next Monday. He had nagging ankle problems most of the 2010-11 season but expects to be 100 percent for his third season (assuming there is a 2011-12 NBA season -- labor strife looms).
On a more life-changing note, Curry will get married July 30th to Ayesha Alexander. She grew up in Charlotte as well -- the two met in a church youth group when she was 14 and he was 15. They have dated for the past three years.
More to come in my full-length column on Stephen in Tuesday's Charlotte Observer and online.
