March Madness Cinderella Underdog.
1. Stephen Curry, Davidson — It seems silly now, but for two years there was a raging debate about whether Curry would be a decent NBA player. In ‘08, the babyfaced sophomore dropped 30-footers and broke ankles on his way to leading the 10-seed Wildcats to the Elite Eight, upsetting Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin before losing to eventual national champion Kansas by just two points. The next year, Curry had Davidson making national TV appearances in the regular season, but his team ended up missing the Big Dance before Curry went pro. He’s now laying the groundwork for an All-Star NBA career.
