Ever wondered what it takes to become a top basketball star?
Well, according to Dell Curry, father of reigning NBA MVP Steph; "You've got to want it, you've got to taste it, you've got to be able to smell it and you've really got to be hungry for it."
At least, that is the advice the former NBA star had for his young son in an excellent early '90s Burger King advert unearthed from the archives and doing the rounds today. Scroll down to see the game's biggest star delivering his lines.

It might not be Oscar worthy, but considering he didn't seem phased by earning his acting chops at such a young age, maybe Curry has a future in the movies once his playing days are over.
Whether repeated trips to Burger King can really be credited for Steph Curry's emergence as one of the NBA's biggest stars is unlikely. Having the genes of a 16-year NBA veteran might have helped him a little, however.
As this ad spot shows, Steph didn't take the usual path to the pros. Alongside starring in fast food commercials, the Warriors star often accompanied his father to games and was involved in shootarounds from an early age.
Perhaps, then, that is why he has handled so well the increased attention that has headed his way over the past 12 months or so.
With companies climbing over themselves to get the next Curry endorsement deal as his popularity grows, you'd be foolish to bet against this ad being recreated in the near future with Steph and his daughter Riley - she's already achieved NBA playoff fame after all.
