The Charlotte Hornets, slowly slipping away from playoff contention, have recently seized attention by acquiring Seth Curry from the Dallas Mavericks. While it is not a landscape-changing addition, the move carries emotional weight as Seth’s father, Dell Curry, had a significant tenure with the team from 1988 to 1998. Reflecting on the roots, Dell expressed pride in witnessing his son donning his jersey number 30 during warmups.

On the fan front, there are rumors that Seth’s inclusion might attract Stephen Curry, completing a full-circle moment. While this idea is subject to debate, Seth just logged in a noteworthy game for the Hornets, scoring 18 points on 7-11 shooting, contributing to the team’s 10th win of the season. With that, in the post-game, Seth couldn’t help but shed light on his emotions about his new tenure.

Initially, Seth Curry pondered the challenge of facing the league’s most aggressive offense, the Indiana Pacers. He then praised his teammates for efficiently handling business on both ends of the floor, resulting in a 111-102 victory. When reminded of his father’s surreal experience watching him in a Hornets’ jersey, Seth echoed the same sentiment. Expressing disbelief, he acknowledged that it has always been his dream to play with that jersey on. Furthermore, he conveyed that he has not fully grasped the depth of the moment and is currently living in it.

Seth’s journey to joining his father’s team involved navigating through nine different teams in the league. He went from playing just one game for a team to experiencing three separate stints with the Dallas Mavericks, making for a lengthy and diverse career. This season, in his 35 games with the Mavericks, Seth averaged 4.4 points with a shooting efficiency of 37.2%.
