Stephen Curry’s “Underrated” Trailer Released

Stephen Curry Underrated Trailer
James Francisco

The basketball documentary legacy continues, capturing arguably the greatest shooter of all time: Four-time National Basketball Association (NBA) Champion Stephen Curry. Streaming exclusively on Apple TV starting July 21, 2023, the film tackles the coming-of-age tale of the once overlooked cager from Charlotte, North Carolina, to the successful superstar he is today.

“Underrated” peers into Curry’s rise from being classified as a scrawny-undersized collegiate athlete, hailing from a small town Division 1 college, whose back has been repeatedly against the ropes. In the trailer, legendary-Duke University Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski mocked his stature, only being “about 5 [foot] 6 [inches],” as former Indiana Pacer Reggie Miller mentions his incapabilities as a leader—though were they inaccurate in their assumptions. 

Despite an initial underwhelming reception by the basketball industry, the Peter Nicks documentary tackles the rise of the Baby-faced Assassin, noting in the clip that only through stepping on the collegiate hardwood was when he “first understood that he was different.” After two years in Davidson, he would average 25.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and convert 41.2% of his attempts beyond the arc in his final season. Behind a Curry-led ensemble, the Davidson Wildcats seeped into the Elite Eight bracket—the deepest NCAA tournament run in school history, before being selected seventh in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors in June.

The emergence of a generational figure, “Underrated” features Curry’s undeterred mindset of “proving himself right.” Widely recognized as the underdog, the 35-year-old possesses nothing short of a star-studded career, establishing a hall-of-fame legacy after 14 years in the NBA.
