One of the positive things that happened this season is Stephen Curry's return from his injury, and the ability to see him play after such a long time is great for any NBA fan. Even though he was out for such a substantial period, it didn't take long for Curry to make his presence felt in the NBA, especially after he scored 62 points vs. the Blazers. It's evident the Warriors are not the same team without Curry, and it's almost impossible to neglect the impact he has on his team and the NBA as a whole.

In an interview for the Mulligan Brothers, former NBA player Muggsy Bogues talked about Curry and his impact on the game of basketball. Bogues was a former teammate of Dell Curry, Steph's dad. During years, their families built up a close relationship that led to Bogues being involved continuously in Steph's upbringing and seeing him grow into a player and a person we know today.

Bogues says one of the reasons for Curry's success lies in the fact he was always surrounded by basketball ever since he was a little kid. Even though he was often the smallest kid on the floor, it was evident he was talented and smart, which eventually got him into Davidson college, despite the fact, there wasn't a lot of universities interested in him

He's been around the game for so long, and he's been soaking up information. We had no idea he was going to be the kid he is today, but we knew he was talented with basketball, and we knew he could play the game of basketball even when he was at Charlotte Christian. Playing here, you know he was small but still able to put up good numbers.

Bogues says Curry took on the challenge of becoming the best basketball player he could be, and it paid off big time for him and his family that believed in him. Many will say Curry revolutionized shooting, especially from the three-point land. That is something Bogues agrees with as well, saying shooting from the three-point land and beyond has become an essential part of today's game.

He took on the challenge, and not only did he put the school on the map but he just kind of reinvigorate this game of basketball with the three-ball. Now the three-ball became such an art, a very important part of the game now. Not just at the line but 5 or 6 feet behind the line. So he impacted the game in a whole new way with this generation now—he kind of revolutionized this game in terms with the three-ball.
