Stephen Curry is a player that we only get once in a generation. The way he has changed the game completely speaks at length about his quality as a player. Moreover, he has been vital to the Golden State Warriors success.

One of Steph’s most popular titles is “Chef Curry”. The GSW star got the nickname from one of the greatest artists of our time, Drake. The Canadian had mentioned Stephen Curdy in the song, “0 to 100 / The Catch Up”. The lyric that had Steph was, “I been Steph Curry with the shot, Been cookin’ with the sauce, chef, curry with the pot, boy”.
“Chef Curry” and “Baby Faced Assassin” are two of the most famous nicknames for Stephen Curry
We can even see the Steph feature in the video. He got the nickname from Drake as he also seems to be cooking on the court with his crazy shots from deep. Since then, the title has stuck with him for years as he’s been doing the same.Steph’s next nickname is one of the most obvious; Baby Faced Assassin. The reason is in the name itself. The way Steph plays, he can dismantle teams single-handedly.
This was how he looked when he got the nickname. To be honest, he still has a baby-like face. When he first came into the league, people thought he was just a boy and that he did not have what it takes to make it in the NBA. With that baby face, Steph has gone on to achieve the greatest things in the NBA.
The last title he has is similar to the previous one. Fans gave him the nickname “The Golden Boy”. The name exists in many industries, even awards are given for the same in football. However, Steph got the name after his success on the court.
He has been successful for the Warriors since he joined them. The American has helped them to the most successful spell in their history. Most of the players with the same title are usually only successful temporarily. However, Curry has retained and lived up to it numerous times in his NBA career.
