Warriors star Stephen Curry reacts to brother, Seth Curry, posting greatest shooting splits of all-time
Philadelphia 76ers guard Seth Curry is on pace to be the first-ever player to shoot 50 percent from the field, 50 percent from deep and 100 percent from the free-throw line. His brother, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry, couldn’t be more proud of his sibling’s stellar statistics.
On Twitter, Curry retweeted SportsCenter’s discovery of Seth’s impressive statistics to start the season off.

It will be difficult for Seth Curry to maintain those statistics. After all, it’s very early in the season and statistics usually normalize by the midway mark. However, it difficult to discount how impressive his shooting has been.
Stephen Curry, for his part, is actually a member of a similar exclusive club as well. The Warriors star is one of just eight players in NBA history to shoot at least 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from deep, and 90 percent from the free-throw line.
Members of the said exclusive list include Larry Bird, Malcolm Brogdon, Kevin Durant, Reggie Miller, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki and Mark Price. Nash actually did it a record four times, while Bird did it twice.
There’s a good chance that Seth’s shooting percentage will temper a bit the more he plays. If so, he’ll still have a chance to be part of the 50-40-90 club with the Warriors star, who is already considered the greatest shooter of all time.
After his early struggles, safe to say that Seth definitely belongs in the NBA. That smooth shooting stroke makes him a valuable asset to any team, especially in today’s game where the 3-pointer seems to take precedence over any type of shot.
