Steph Curry is so popular, even LeBron James’ son Bronny shouts “Steph!” after shooting in recognition of the Warriors star.

Steph Curry breaking the NBA’s three-point shooting record gave people a chance to reflect on the impact he’s had on the league and the future of basketball.

It also led to a pretty hilarious anecdote from Yahoo! Sports Krysten Peek on FanSided’s Warriors Huddle podcast concerning Curry, Lakers star LeBron James and his son Bronny.

LeBron James’ son Bronny shouts “Steph!” after shooting

It turns out, Curry has such an influence on young basketball players that Bronny says his name after shooting instead of his dad’s.

Listen to the anecdote starting at the 49-minute mark.

“That’s impacting the next wave of players coming up,” Peek said. “I just love it was LeBron’s son and he was yelling out ‘Steph!’”

It’s the ultimate respect to drop a shooter’s name like that. Kids grew up in the 90s shouting “Jordan!” Kids in the 2000s would fall back with a “Kobe!” Now, kids are idolizing “Steph!”

Bronny is a four-star prospect for the class of 2023, ranking 38th in the 247Sports composite rankings. While his dad is a forward with a rare skillset, Bronny is more of a guard.
