Stephen Curry and his brother have the kind of bond we all dream of
Reported by Victor Ochieng
There is no doubt that the Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry is at his best this season. He’s put up a performance that has given him a successful run and has led his team to many victories.
Performance aside, Curry is quite an interesting player to watch. The 27-year-old is composed in his games and has been said to shoot his best while chewing his mouthguard. Joe Lacob, Golden State owner, thinks his mouthguard magic is “just a nervous habit.” It’s actually a random act that the player didn’t really give much thought.
What’s even more interesting is the fact that even the GM didn’t want to ask Stephen about the mouthguard, since his baseline performance remains impeccable.
While many are hooked to his performance, none of that comes close to how Stephen’s brother, Seth Curry, relishes in watching his brother’s basketball magic. Seth is a former Duke Blue Devil player who’s currently with the Erie BayHawks of the D-League.
In an interview with the Bleacher Report, Seth revealed what it’s been for him watching his brother this season. He remembers his brother telling him at the beginning of the year that this NBA season is going to be his best, and indeed, Stephen has practically delivered. Interestingly enough, Seth didn’t quite think that Stephen would live up to his claim. But well, actions speak louder than words.
Seth excitedly remembers watching his brother during a Warriors game against the Pelicans in New Orleans, where Stephen forced the game into overtime. These are some of the feats that make him have deep respect for his sibling.
Stephen throws his shots and immediately turns, even before seeing whether it’s gone in or not. This, Seth says, isn’t about being cocky or anything, but simply because he knows when the shot is right.
“I can tell just by watching, having worked out with him so much, before he lets it go if he’s comfortable and the shot is going to go in or not,” says Seth. “Other than that he’s pretty even-keeled. He plays the same way whether he’s playing bad or good at the moment. He’s just as confident and doesn’t give off as many bad emotions.”
He’s happy for his brother for earning the star status and the fact that he’s widely respected in the basketball world. But according to Seth, nothing much has changed between them; they still remain brothers, conversing just the way they used to.
“His success doesn’t change the conversation between us at all,” reveals Seth. “He’s the exact same person he was in high school. He’s a low-key guy and wants to stay out of the spotlight.”
However, his status compels him to spare time in public places to take pictures with fans.
“When we go out, people want to take pictures no matter where he is,” says Seth. “Non-basketball fans know who he is with the commercials and stuff he’s doing off the court.”
The celebrity life isn’t his style, though. Stephen prefers to spend much of his time with the family and friends.
