Famous NBA Player Steph Curry Names New Son Canon, Yes, Just Like the Famous Camera Company

In the department of slow July 4th week photography news, NBA superstar Steph Curry has named his new son Canon. Yes, it’s spelled just like the famous, Japanese imaging company but there’s no word yet if it has anything to do with Steph or his wife Ayesha having an affinity for Canon photography gear. (Maybe they just like the word, which means a general law, rule or principle.)

The child’s full name is Canon W. Jack Curry and he is Steph and Ayesha’s third child. The Golden State Warriors' all-star point guard announced the news yesterday on Instagram, while posting an adorable photo of Canon Curry, which we have embedded below.

If he doesn’t grow up to be a basketball player like his father, there’s probably a pretty good chance he’ll end up becoming a photographer with that name. And who knows, maybe someday he’ll even be a Canon Explorer of Light?
