Right knee feels like it might give out when at a 45 degree angle (ie climbing up or down stairs). Able to do Leg curls and BBall no problem. Serious?

In brief: Orthopedic surgeon

I assume that your knee feels unstable when flexed and bearing weight because of pain rather than weakness alone.
The problem could be with muscle,ligament or cartilage. An orthopedic surgeon is best qualified to evaluate and advise you about imaging,diagnosis and treatment.
