The Observer ran a picture of Davidson guard Stephen Curry's left shoe (it's above) in Sunday's paper, from the game in which Curry set the school's all-time scoring record. The phrase written on the shoe, in quotes, said, "I can do all things."
The comment, as pointed out by two readers, wasn't a boast by Curry, but rather an expression of his faith and humility. It comes from the Bible and Philippians 4:13, where Paul says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
If you have any knowledge of Curry, you understand that "boastful" is not in his repertoire. He is unfailingly humble and quick to give credit to his teammates and coaches. Just wanted to clear that up.
