Brotherly Love: Steph Curry Hugs Brother Seth Curry Before Game, Makes Him Look Silly During Game (Video)
By now you are probably aware that Steph Curry—reigning NBA MVP and Greek god of three-pointers—has a pretty strong basketball pedigree. His dad, Dell Curry, played 16 seasons in the NBA with the Jazz, Hornets, Bucks, and Raptors. And his brother, Seth Curry, played three years for Mike Krzyzewski and the Duke Blue Devils.
Unfortunately, the basketball force isn’t quite as strong with Seth as it is his older brother, so he did not end up getting drafted out of college. However, after bouncing around the D-League for a few years—and dominating, I might add—at the age of 25 it seems Seth Curry has finally caught on a bit with the Sacramento Kings. Though he’s hardly a star, he has appeared in 20 games this season, averaging 3.7 points in 11 minutes per game. And on Saturday night, Seth Curry finally got to do something he’s been wanting to do for a long time: play against his brother in the NBA.
So how’d that go?
Well, Steph certainly didn’t take it easy on his lil’ bro. In fact, at one point Seth and a Kings teammate were double-teaming the reigning NBA MVP, and the reigning MVP eluded them both before launching a three-pointer over his baby brother’s head:

In the end, Steph Curry finished with 38 points, and his team won its 35th game in 37 tries. Seth, meanwhile, finished with zero points, and his team suffered its 22nd loss.
But don’t count Seth out just yet. After all, he, and not his older brother, is the all-time scoring leader at Charlotte Christian High. Steph Curry and Seth Curry may play more meaningful games against each other yet.
