Stephen Curry is, obviously, one of the biggest stars in basketball. A 7x All-Star, 3x Champion, and 2x NBA MVP, Curry is not only one of the most talented players, but he's also one of the most accomplished.
The crazy thing is, he isn't the only Curry lighting the NBA on fire right now.
In Philadelphia, Seth is having a career year as starting guard for the 76ers, averaging 15.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game on 50% shooting.
This past Wednesday, the two brothers actually faced off against each other, and they combined for 49 points.
After the game, the Warriors superstar gave some brotherly love to Seth, detailing just how proud he was to see him succeed:
“That dude is playing incredible basketball,” Steph said, via Keith Pompey of the SunHerald. “He’s fun to watch. He’s continuing to get better. He goes at his own pace. He’s so under control. So I’m a proud, proud brother.”
It's relatively rare for two members of the same family to be in the league at the same time. Of course, Seth and Steph have played each other many times now, but the feeling is still surreal.
"Growing up around the NBA with my father,m going to games, we used to go out there and take shots as kids on an NBA floor and pretend that we are in the league,” Seth said. “This is probably double digits the numbers of times we played against each other now, but it’s still special. You don’t want to take it for granted.
Like I said, it’s a dream come true and you try to appreciate every moment, because you don’t know how many times you got.”
Seth, 31, might never match the level of his brother, but he's found a permanent home in Philadelphia and has proven to be a talented and valuable guard in the league.
The hope is that, with time, he, too, will be able to add a championship to his resume. But that's a whole lot easier said than done...
