On Tuesday afternoon, the Charlotte Hornets posted this tweet asking the basketball world if Dell Curry is on our list of all-time Charlotte basketball greats. If you watched basketball in the 90s and remember when the 1994 Sixth Man Of The year was knocking down threes off assists from fellow Hornets greats Mugsy Bogues, Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning, then you didn’t hesitate with a “HELL YES!”
On Tuesday evening, the 54-year-old Curry showed attendees at his son’s SC30 Camp — full of the nation’s top high school basketball players that weren’t even alive when Dell was in the league — he can still knock down threes like it was 1993 and he was battling Mark Price for a NBA Three-Point Contest championship.
Without a warm-up or any stretching, Dell accepted his son’s challenge to complete the racks, started off cold and then heated up, knocking down 13 of his last 19 shots for a score of 16.
After getting challenged by his son Steph, the players and the crowd Dell gave us a show! He scored 16. Credit to the DJ for taking the music back a few years lol – #SC30Select pic.twitter.com/t3LWT17deg

The score of 16 was five and four more than his scores in the 1992 and 1994 NBA Three-Point contests and five less than Steph’s score on this night. But, from the reaction of the hyped players, crowd and screaming Steph, Dell was the winner.
The following video is the full IG Live stream of Steph filming and cheering for his Dad as well as Steph celebrating 15-year-old female baller Aziz Fudd beating the boys in a 3-point contest.
