Many children wish to be sports stars when they grow up, but not many get to live out that dream.

Stephen Curry was no different when he moved to Toronto, Canada as a kid to go to school at Queensway Christian College because his father, Dell, was playing for the Raptors at the time.

The Globe and Mail, via Fox Sports, found one of Curry's old yearbook photo from back in 2002 where he declared he would like to one day play in the NBA.

Curry's comments in the yearbook said: "I would like to thank God this year for allowing me to move to a new country and live in a new environment. It was a great change and I enjoyed it a lot."

"I look forward to going to the NBA when I get older and I would like to get my College education."

So far in his career, the Golden State Warriors star has won several awards, including the NBA MVP award and the NBA Championship, which is more than enough to satisfy any child that dreams of playing in the NBA. 

Curry will return to Toronto this weekend for the NBA All-Star game, where he will have the opportunity to pick up one of the few trophies that have eluded him during his career so far, the NBA All-Star Game MVP trophy.

The current NBA MVP's former coach James Lackey let Curry shoot from a longer range than anyone else because he was making the normal shooting drills look easy.

He said: "He was making every shot, so I told him if it was too easy, he could step back from everyone a bit. By the time the drill was done, Stephen was shooting from two or three feet behind the three-point line and still making more shots than anybody else. That's when we figured he was something kind of special."

With Curry having a record-breaking year this season for the Warriors, you can see his coach was right to test him further when things were getting easy.
