Stephen Curry, Warriors Meet Legendary Point Guard Wat Misaka
CloseUp360 partnered with the Golden State Warriors on a summit of legendary point guards. To celebrate his 95th birthday, the Warriors welcomed Wat Misaka, the first non-white player picked during the inaugural pro basketball draft in 1947, into shootaround at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, near where he lives. Wat met the player (Stephen Curry) and team that inspired him to watch the NBA again.
Go inside Wat’s day with Steph, Kevin Durant and the Warriors, and learn more about his legacy in the game, for our "CU360 Special."
Special thanks to Wat, Nancy Umemura, and Christine and Bruce Johnson (with excerpts from their documentary Transcending: The Wat Misaka Story).
