Despite the apparent brotherly bond between Seth and Stephen CurryThe possibility that the two brothers will unite as a team is unlikely.
This is an opinion NBA Shooter Seth, who traveled to Down Under to play a role in helping develop the next generation of basketball stars in Australia during the recession.
On his first visit to Australia, Curry teamed up with former Harlem Globetrotter Tracy Williams as well as Melbourne United coach Dean Vickerman to run clinics for more than 100 children aged 12-19 through Charity Bounce and Footlocker Australia. It is also believed that the country’s coffee has lived up to its noble reputation.
“I’m just having some fun with the kids, spreading my knowledge and doing some practice at the same time,” he told Wide World of Sports.
“It was a great experience overall.”
Currently entering the final year of a four-year deal, Curry’s future in the NBA is somewhat in flux after that. Traded midway through last season for the Brooklyn NetsHe is currently working with Team Australia Ben Simmons.
my team star, Kevin Durant And the Keri IrvingAnd, apparently wanting to get out, there’s no telling what kind of team Curry will have around him this season, or whether he’ll be shipped in another deal with Durant and/or Irving.
While Curry will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of next season and will undoubtedly choose a number of teams, joining his older brother at Golden State wouldn’t be an option…for now.
“It doesn’t look like it. It probably won’t be soon,” Curry said of the prospect of the brothers teaming up.
“You never know, I never say never. We don’t really talk about it, I think he knows that’s not what I really want to do right now. I’d rather do something on the East Coast or wherever I’m in and play for my team.”
Take a peek at Seth Curry’s basketball journey, and it’s no surprise that he’s happy to continue carving out his own path—that’s what he had to do to get to this point.
Despite being hit with a famous long-range shooting Curry during his five-year college career, unlike his father Dale and older brother, who were both first-round draft picks, Seth went without drafting in 2013.
There was a brief glimmer of hope that the two brothers would be reunited in court when the Warriors signed an unsecured contract after the draft, but that was short-lived as it was waived by the ball club two months later.
Seth would be jumping around the league for the next two years trying to find a home, with stops in Cleveland, Memphis and Phoenix, all while scoring plenty of minutes in the NBA, as it was then called.
Meanwhile, his older brother’s star had risen. Steve was named to his first All Star team in 2014, before blasting off the league to win his first two consecutive Most Valuable Player Awards in 2015.
Although the achievement was his crowning moment at that point in his career, Steve took the time to shout out to his then-unknown brother, telling him and those listening in the audience that Seth’s time was coming.
“I’m so proud of you man. We had some fights, you challenged me every day when we played one-on-one in the backyard. Those fights I’ll never forget,” said Seth, who fought back tears in the crowd.
“Just seeing how you’ve grown up and your career, it’s not easy having an older brother who plays in the NBA and obviously your dad, and the way you handle it is impressive.
“The sky is the limit for you, keep doing what you’re doing and keep making the family proud.”
Steve’s words proved to be a defining moment in Seth’s career. Curry the Younger lit up the NBA Summer League in the months following his MVP speech, before signing a guaranteed deal with the Sacramento Kings that would kick-start an incredibly successful career in the league.
Fast forward a decade later, and the Sith is a lethal weapon on the court that defenses in and of itself cannot ignore.
The youngest Curry ranks fourth of all-time in three-pointers in the playoffs, having drilled more than 47 percent of his shots from distance in the biggest games of his career, a mark above all-time leader in three-pointers, Steve.
Seth has become a much sought after player, able to complement any of the league’s biggest stars, and has played with the best players, including Kevin Durant, Damian LillardAnd the Joel Embiid And the Luka Doncic.
“He was always in my corner to be honest,” he said of Steve’s 2015 MVP speech.
“It was just being honest, and even when I was trying to get into the NBA, he and my dad were on my corner and telling me they thought I was good enough to play in the NBA just allowed me to keep that confidence and keep going and work hard.
“He said those words, it’s not just things he says just to blow me away, he really means what he says.
“I try to do the same and be in his corner as if I was in the qualifiers going to his matches. It is good to see him come back to the top and win another championship after the few difficult years he had as a player and they were as a team.
“We’re always in each other’s corners and want to see each other do the best we can.”
Although he has a clear NBA pedigree, Seth doesn’t think his league career was a foregone conclusion, but he believes it made him more “relatable” to the fans.
“I just appreciate every step of the way,” he said.
“I had to earn every chance I had and had to play well to get another chance to try to rise, so it made me appreciate where I am.
“I think it made me better too, just playing for so many different teams, different coaches and different systems allows me to adapt to different roles and different situations.
“I think all that has come out this season, being traded in the middle of the season and being able to come in and play really well right away.
“That journey has allowed me to become a better player and I appreciate every step after not knowing if I’ll ever get a real chance of getting a career in the NBA.”
Seth found himself in a rather strange place in the league, as his contract meant he was constantly involved in deals, even though his production remained at a high level.

After signing a four-year, $32 million deal with the Dallas Mavericks in 2019, Seth was transferred twice before his contract expired.
“There are a lot of deals going on, you could sign a deal and trade it in next month, who knows,” he said of the impending free agency decision.
“For me, I’m just trying to get involved in this season and have fun. I’d like to be in the same place for a long period of time, but it’s not really up to me.
“I played really well in Dallas and Philly, beat my contract, and I’m still trading. That’s part of the game.
“There are two endings to every story and obviously there are teams that trade me, but also the team that trades for me. They want me for a reason and feel I can help them, so that’s where I see it.
“I understand the business, I understand that I’m making a valuable contract, and a lot of teams are asking me to fit in. I try to come in and do my job and try to be better every year.”
If Seth has any luck in his next home, Stephen might not be the only one in the family to boast an NBA championship ring in the near future.
