Proving doubters wrong never felt so good. Just ask Stephen Curry.
In a new ad for CoachUp, a company that connects athletes with private coaches, the NBA MVP reads scouts' criticism about his game from his 2009 draft report over the sounds of Drake's "0-100."
"Stephen's explosiveness and athleticism are below standard. He's not a great finisher around the basket. He needs to considerably improve as a ball handler. Often struggles against physical defenders," the Golden State Warriors' All-Star point guard begins reading, all accompanied by footage of him doing everything the scouts doubted he could. "Stephen must develop as a point guard in order to make it in the league.
"He will have limited success at the next level," he continues. "Do not rely on him to run your team."
To the latter two points of skepticism, words flash across the scene saying, "2015 MVP," and "2015 World Champion."
Yes, Curry has more than proved doubters wrong throughout his career, whether it was as a counted-out college prospect or unlikely NBA superstar as the seventh overall selection in the 2009 Draft to eventual NBA MVP and champion.
Nobody would dare doubt him now.
