Two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry may have competition in the looks department.
A 10-month-old baby named Landon bears a striking resemblance to the Golden State Warriors guard, but his mom Jessica Benton wasn’t too thrilled about the “Stuff Curry” nickname initially bestowed on her son over social media.
Benton didn’t know who Curry was before someone saw a photo of Landon and called attention to the resemblance. Curry won his second straight MVP award this season, after averaging 30.1 points per game on 50.4 percent shooting.
“I’m not going to let them fat shame my baby and put it all over online and just give it up there,” Benton said to ESPN’s Darrell Rovell. “I wanted to really turn it into something good and take control over it and say, ‘OK, we’re gonna own this name. Yeah we’re Stuff Curry. We look like the famous basketball player.'”
It’s hard to believe someone wouldn’t know who Steph Curry was, but with “Stuff Curry” starting to move into the limelight, the Warriors guard may actually become the lesser known celebrity.
