Steph Curry is as loyal as he is.

The all-time great point guard has been a devoted member of the Golden State Warriors since he was selected in the 2009 NBA Draft with the No. 7 overall pick.

Prior to this, he refused to transfer to a major program during his collegiate career with Davidson.

Earlier this week, Curry received his college diploma and Davidson became the first player in basketball history to retire at his number 30.

The Davidson Hall of Famer also became one of three people to receive the keys to the city of Charlotte.

During his acceptance speech, Curry hinted at a possible return to North Carolina at some point during his later NBA career.

“This honor and this award – I have always said that I want to end my career at Golden State because of how much it means to me,” Curry said.

"Experience, teammates and travel since then, everyone asks me,

'Oh, you don't want to play a year for the [Charlotte] Hornets and come back?'

"... I'm not making any promises.

All I will say is that if there was a team I wanted to play for that wasn't called the Warriors, it would be this one.

That's all I can say about it."

The NBA world took to Twitter to respond to Curry's comments.

"Brother Hornet is about to retire," predicted one fan.

"A Steph LaMelo backcourt would be the best backcourt in the league," said another.

"Would love to see it," said another.

If Curry follows in his father's footsteps and joins the Hornets organization, it won't be long.

The four-time NBA champion is associated with the Warriors during the 2025–26 season.
