A Twitter photo of the list of graduates on the commencement program shows Curry’s name as “Wardell Stephen Curry II.” The 8-time All-Star did not graduate with honors, and some jokes poured in the replies.

Curry isn’t the only Warrior set to receive a bachelor’s degree this spring. Guard Gary Payton II is set to finish his last semester at Oregon State. Payton II played two seasons at Oregon State from from 2014-16, according to Basketball-Reference.

With the Warriors clinching a spot in the Western Conference Finals on Friday, Curry had a few days off from playing a playoff game to celebrate the accomplishment. The Warriors await the winner of the Dallas Mavericks-Phoenix Suns series as Game 1 is scheduled for Wednesday.

Since leaving Davidson in 2009 and entering the NBA, Curry has won three NBA championships, two scoring titles, and made seven All-NBA teams.

Thanks to a Davidson basketball game, Curry said his first time in the Bay Area was in 2009. He stayed a Marriot hotel in Walnut Creek as Davidson took on the Saint Mary’s College Gaels in nearby Moraga.
