Video: Warriors’ Stephen Curry tells his parents to ‘fix themselves’ on who they will be supporting
It was definitely weird seeing a fan wearing Portland Trail Blazers gear cheering after a made basket from the Golden State Warriors. Until, of course, you realize the fan is Sonya Curry and the player who just made the basket is her son, Warriors superstar Stephen Curry.
After the game, the two-time MVP advised his parents to finally settle on who they will be cheering for moving forward:

The face-off between brothers Stephen Curry and Seth Curry has been an underlying story of this Western Conference Finals matchup between the the Warriors and Blazers.
Prior to Game 1, the Curry family settled on a coin flip to determine who would be cheering for Steph and who would root for Seth. The flip determined that Dell would don Golden State’s colors, while Sonya would wear Blazers gear.
However, the two could not seem to contain themselves throughout the game. Both parents cheered whenever either of their sons made a basket or a play.
Sonya, who was donning little brother Seth’s No. 31 Portland jersey, was seen clapping on multiple occasions after Steph made a basket for the Dubs. 12 times perhaps as Stephen Curry torched the Blazers with 36 points on 12-of-21 shooting from the field — including nine 3-pointers — to lead the Warriors to a 116-94 victory in Game 1.
Seth Curry, on the other hand, scored just 3 points on 1-of-7 shooting in just 19 minutes off the Blazers’ bench.
Stephen is obviously more superior than Seth in terms of talent, and the former’s accolades and accomplishments back it up. Nevertheless, Dell and Sonya will support their two sons equally no matter how this series will go down.
