He was named Mr. Basketball of Illinois and was the MVP of McDonald’s All-American Game of 2001, with 28 points. Curry did not actually have a college career; despite having shown interest in playing for DePaul University, he entered the NBA Draft of 2001, not walking the traditional path of athletes: high school, university and professional sports.
Concerning his professional career, he was selected fourth in the first round of the Draft by the Chicago Bulls, after Pau Gasol.

During the 2010 – 2011 season, he was traded to Minnesota but released after a few days. t the end of 2011, Curry signed a contract with Miami Heat, and for his comeback Curry took off up to 30 kg of weight.
