Poor Stephen Curry. The 26-year-old Warriors sharpshooter was one of the league's brightest stars in 2014, but he still can't convince waitresses at Bay Area restaurants that he's old enough to drink legally.
Curry was at a California Pizza Kitchen with his wife soon after the 2014 season ended, and told Dime Magazine that he tried to order a beer even though he hadn't brought his ID with him:
“So I ordered a beer, and I didn’t have my ID with me, ‘cause I left it in the car and I thought she’d recognize me,” Curry told Dime, referring to the waitress. “So the waitress asks, and I was like, ‘uh, is your manager here,’ and I took my chances with him knowing who I was, and…he knew. But she basically — yeah — she wouldn’t give me the benefit of the doubt, knowing that I didn’t look like I was over 21 and not knowing who I was.”
One of Curry's many nicknames is 'the baby-faced assassin', and it isn't hard to see why. Experimenting with facial hair hasn't helped much (you generally need more than a dozen mustache hairs to make a mustache happen), and it looks like until his hair starts turning gray, Curry will need to keep his ID on him whenever he goes out on the town.
