The stardom surrounding Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has fans around the country flocking to games hours before tip-off just to watch the 28-year-old Davidson product perform his daily pregame routine. He dazzles people of all ages with uncanny displays of ball-handling and outside shooting on a nightly bases. And as his fan base has rapidly grown, so has the number of kids who will go head over heels in an effort to have a piece of memorabilia signed by him.
Prior to Wednesday night’s match up against the Utah Jazz, Curry, who had just finished his on-court warm up, proceeded through the tunnel, but stopped to sign autographs, as he does before each game. Four fans caught up in the scrum fell over a dislodged railing, landing just inches from Curry, who was uninjured.

As for the fans involved, one was reportedly treated with first-aid, while the other three went on to receive autographs before heading back up to their seats.
A Jazz spokesperson said afterwards that the team would look into the matter and have their safety measures re-evaluated.
