The Curry clan is widely recognized as one of the best shooting families in the history of the NBA, with Dell Curry being one of the best marksmen of all time and Steph Curry literally regarded as the best shooter of all-time. Younger brother Seth isn't too bad either, boasting 44% shooting average from three-point range over the course of his career.
Dell Curry has always famously supported his boys in their endeavors to make it to the top at the NBA level and he was a major influence on the way they learned to play the game growing up. Seth has now revealed though, that Steph's quality was apparent from a very young age, sharing a story of how the older Curry beat their father Dell in a one-on-one while he was still in high school.
Making an appearance on the All The Smoke podcast, Seth was asked about whether his father can still compete in a shooting contest with the brothers. The current Sixers star responded by explaining that while Dell can still shoot at the age of 57, he can't move around much. He went on to reveal that Dell hadn't played the brothers in a one-on-one game since Steph beat him in high school.
Matt Barnes: "Can your dad still hold his own in a shooting contest?"
Seth: “No question, he can shoot it. He don’t wanna move around a lot. He definitely ain’t playing us one-on-one. I think in high school, Steph beat him one-on-one. That was the last time he played either of us one-on-one."
Dell Curry was about 40 when Steph was in high school, which makes the achievement quite an impressive one for the older Curry brother. Dell will probably feel better about it now considering that his son went on to become one of the greatest to ever do it in the NBA. Seth himself has improved greatly during his time in the league and is averaging a career-high 16.3 points per game playing for the Philadelphia 76ers this season.
