Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors is the biggest star out of his family. His father, Dell Curry, was an NBA player and won Sixth Man of the Year in 1994 while Steph’s brother Seth Curry currently plays for the Philadelphia 76ers, who have the best record in the Eastern Conference.

Upon hearing of this news, Steph Curry wasted no time in trolling his brother. His first reaction was that he did not watch the East. He did note that Seth was happy playing and then gave a shout out to his brother. Steph said, “I don’t even follow the east, I didn’t even know that. I knew they were playing well, and he was happy to back from protocols and all. Shoutout to S-dot!”

Seth Curry has been having a good season so far with the 76ers. He’s averaging career-highs in scoring, assists, and three-point shooting at the moment. For the season, Curry has averaged 14.5 points, 3 assists, and 50% shooting from the three-point range. Additionally, he is now a starter for his team for the first time in his career.

Curry has not had the same level of success as his brother. He has been used as a rotation option for his shooting prowess and defensive abilities. Clearly, the ability to shoot is a gene that runs throughout the Curry family, and Seth has also inherited that skill. His arrival has added a whole new dimension to the 76ers gameplay, which is more three-point oriented.

However, Seth Curry has been a reliable option in whichever team he has played in. Last year, Curry was a bench rotation option for the Dallas Mavericks, starting the game behind Luka Doncic. Despite the lack of minutes, Curry averaged 12 points per game, while shooting 49% from the three-point line.
