The three-point master and his younger brother Seth Curry have already made their presence felt in the NBA. When it comes to the Curry family, they are known as the ‘First Family of the NBA’. Dell and Sonya Curry are undoubtedly proud of their children for creating their own legacies and paths in sports and beyond.
