Steph Curry is balling out in the NBA right now as he and the Golden State Warriors continue their march towards history.
And, judging by a video doing the rounds online today, his rise to prominence as an expert shot maker has been long in the making.
The footage, played during the Warriors' road win over the Toronto Raptors last night, shows Curry making some incredible shots on the Air Canada Centre back at the turn of the century when his father, Dell Curry, was a Raptors player.

The point guard has consistently made tough shots look easy in recent times, and some of the circus shots - specifically the near half court shot at the 17 second mark - made by his young self wouldn't look out of place in his current arsenal of shots.
It is clear that Curry has always had potential and seeing him make good on that at present is a true blessing for NBA fans.
And, even on the same night that we were being alerted to his teenage talent, the 27-year-old Curry was setting new standards on the hardwood.
He racked up 44 points against his Dad's old team, helping the Warriors maintain their incredible 21-game winning streak to start the 2015-16 season.
Just how much better Curry can get remains to be seen. What is clear, though, from both the vintage footage and his current play, is that the Golden State star is one of the most naturally gifted players on his generation.
