David Kahn, Jordan Hill instrumental in Warriors’ drafting of Curry

Like every team, the Warriors had prospects in for workouts and interviews in the weeks leading up to the draft. Interestingly, Curry didn’t work out for the Warriors, so you can never gauge how much that all matters. Anyway, on the day that Hill visits with the Warriors, he works out, meets many team employees, has a meal with front office guys, interviews, etc.

At the end of the process, Hill is asked if there is anything he would like to know … about the Warriors’ organization, the Bay Area, the fans, where to possibly live, anything at all.

“Yeah,” Hill said. “How’s the nightlife in Oakland.”

A few weeks later:

David Stern: “With the No. 7 pick, in the 2009 NBA draft, the Golden State Warriors select Stephen Curry, Davidson.”
