Anyone who follows the NBA understands how impactful Steph Curry has been on the game of basketball. The two-time MVP and three-time NBA champion has transcended the game with his unique handle and elite 3-point shooting prowess.

But according to former NBA player Jason Terry, Curry's work off the court deserves even more commendation than his dominance on it.

"As great of a basketball player as Steph Curry is," Terry said Thursday on 95.7 The Game, "he's much more of a humanitarian and a person, a human being. What he did for me and my basketball program with Drive Nation here in Dallas. This last spring, he invited over 35 of my young ladies out to the Underrated camp, free of charge, put on a great platform for them. They were able to showcase their skills, and now they're being recruited by tons and tons of colleges across the country.

"So hats off to him man, I love the work he does. And I just wish all our young men could look at what he does and aspire to be who he is."

Curry's Underrated Tour had stops scheduled around the country, and is designed to help 3-star prospects get noticed by top college programs. Curry himself was a 3-star prospect coming out of high school.

The Warriors star has made it a point during the coronavirus pandemic to give back to not just the Bay Area community, but the entire world.

Terry hopes that young men around the globe can learn a thing or two from Curry's work away from the hardwood, not just what he does between the baselines.
