Stephen Curry’s parents wanted Seth Curry, Blazers to defeat Warriors in 2019 West Finals
On their latest podcast, Dell and Sonya Curry — the parents of Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry and Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry — finally admitted that they secretly wanted the Portland Trail Blazers to defeat the Dubs in the 2019 Western Conference Finals.
The Curry brothers were enemies in the 2019 West Finals, as Seth was on the Blazers. Steph and the Warriors, however, wound up sweeping the Blazers.
As transcribed by Drew Shiller of NBC Sports Bay Area:
Klay Thompson’s father, Mychal: “I was thinking about you guys during the Portland-Warriors series last year and seeing you guys in your split jerseys. And I said if I was the Currys — if I had to choose — I would choose Seth. Steph already had three rings …”
Dell Curry: “We didn’t tell the media that, but that was our choice (laughing).”
Sonya Curry: “It was really weird, though. First of all, we hated that whole experience …”
Stephen Curry has won three rings with the Warriors. He is also a two-time league MVP and the greatest shooter in NBA history. Seth Curry, meanwhile, currently has no hardware on his NBA résumé.
With that said, it would make sense why Dell and Sonya Curry were privately rooting for Seth and the Blazers in last year’s Western Conference Finals.
Steph and the Warriors fell to Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 Finals in six games. This season was a mess for the Dubs, who had the worst record in the NBA before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus.
The 32-year-old sharpshooter has only appeared in five games for the Warriors this 2019-20. He broke his left hand in the fourth game of the season against the Phoenix Suns and underwent two surgeries.
