While the Warriors got knocked out in the first round, Steph Curry’s performance has been incredible this season. However, he couldn’t get past the Los Angeles Lakers. But the 76ers have taken a 2-0 lead in their series against the Hawks. In the meantime, Curry is hoping that his brother will win the NBA title, and be the finals MVP.

“I’m a pseudo-Sixer fan now. We’re going storybook,” said Curry.

Curry spoke about cheering up Seth Curry as he wants him to win that NBA title. Even though Curry has won three NBA titles, Seth has never won a championship. Steph shared an interesting video of him cheering for his brother with his son, Canon.

The Philadelphia 76ers are hoping to win their first title since 1983. Joel Embiid has performed remarkably well this season as he continues to showcase his talents on the court. But if the 76ers are to advance to the next round, then Seth Curry will be key to their performances as the favorites to meet them will be the Brooklyn Nets.
