Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is all about special presents and he didn’t fall short of one for his sister Sydel, who is getting married over the weekend.
Curry went really outside the box and had a locker room named after his sister at her alma mater Elon, which he announced in a video alongside his wife Ayesha and brother Seth.
“I just want to say congratulations on getting married this weekend. That’s a big occasion — I know it’s crazy,” said Curry.
“We also want to congratulate you on an amazing career at Elon playing volleyball, all you did for the school and the program and wanted to give it back to you with the new locker room (named) for Sydel Curry. Enjoy it!”
Sydel Curry led the Colonial Athletic Association in assists for two of the three seasons she played at Elo, putting a bow in her collegiate career in early 2017 after hurting her knee. She graduated from Elon in 2017 and will get married Saturday in her native Charlotte to Damion Lee, who the Golden State Warriors recently signed over a two-way contract.
An emotional Curry soon-to-be bride took to Instagram after Tuesday’s volleyball game, captioning the following.
“What started out to be a trip to support @elonvb ended up becoming one of the most memorable evenings of my life. I can’t begin to explain how grateful I am to my siblings for this amazing gift! Elon was such a blessing and helped me grow into the woman that I am today. Having the the Elon Women’s Volleyball Locker Room named after me is an honor. Again, thank you thank you thank you to the best siblings in the world! I love you all! Okay, now back to crying.”
