Here are five things you might not know about Steph Curry.

1. Comes From Sports Family: It might not be too surprising that Curry comes from a family of talented athletes. Curry is the son of Dell Curry and Sonya Curry.

Dell played basketball at Virginia Tech, followed by 16 seasons in the NBA for teams that included the Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers, Charlotte Hornets, Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors.

Dell scored 12,670 points in his NBA career, averaging 11.7 points per game. When he retired, Curry was the Hornets all-time leader in points and three-point field goals.

Apple will stream its next hardware event to the masses on March 8 at 10 am Pacific (1 pm Eastern), the company announced today. Invitations have already been sent to the press—though the event will be yet another prerecorded, streaming-only presentation with no media in attendance. Apple marketing SVP Greg Joswiak tweeted the now-customary Apple-logo-centric teaser video that doesn’t actually tease anything.

We never know exactly what will be announced at any given Apple event, but Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that the lineup will include a refresh of the budget-friendly iPhone SE and the first iPad Air update in a little over a year.

Rumors have also circulated about updated designs and new Apple Silicon chips for the MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the high-end Intel Mac Mini, the 27-inch iMac, and the Mac Pro are all still running Intel chips. The characteristically cryptic “peek performance” tagline does at least hint at new chips for one or more Macs, whether that’s a truly next-gen Apple M2 for thin-and-light laptops or an M1 Pro/Max-focused refresh for the more powerful desktops.
