Warriors’ Stephen Curry, Blazers’ Seth Curry speak out about West Finals matchup
When the Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors meet on Tuesday for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, it will be the first time in history that two brothers face each other in the third round of the playoffs.
Blazers guard Seth Curry and Warriors guard Stephen Curry might have grown up together, but the gloves will come off as soon as the jump ball is made. The Curry brothers opens up how they feel about the family showdown, with Seth claiming that he’s looking forward to it.
“It’s gonna be a lot of fun, man. Hard to believe right now. So many years I’ve watched Steph play in the Western Conference finals, the NBA Finals, being in the crowd,” Seth told Nick Friedell of ESPN. “So it’s gonna be fun to be out there on the court, competing, to get to that Finals. So, I mean, it’s a dream come true for us too. But obviously, our families are going to have a lot of fun with it as well.”
His older brother Steph, meanwhile, mused on how their parents would feel.
“For them, it’s family. And parents who support us all the way through the ranks. Now, to be in a situation like this, where it’s technically a win-win for them, they’re going to the Finals regardless. But it’s kind of crazy to think we’re on this stage and get to play in front of our family, and just the happiness and joy that comes from that is crazy.”
Regardless of how this plays out, we will see at least one Curry in the NBA Finals for the fifth straight year. The only question is whether it will be the best shooter of all time and three-time titlist Steph or the promising up-and-comer and key bench player Seth.
