Seth Curry Says He & Steph As Kids Would Outshoot Players On The Raptors In Practice
Seth Curry was a guest on Chris Broussard’s ‘In The Zone’ podcast and talked a little about him and a whole lot about his brother: Does Steph inspire you? Have you ever beat Steph one-on-one? What’s Steph’s range on the court? Can you be as good as Steph? Have you thought about teaming up with Steph? How similar are you and Steph off the court? How tough was the loss in the finals for Steph? How many posters of Steph do you have on your bedroom walls. I made the last one up but the other questions were discussed. And they weren’t discussed in an ass-kissing way that I just jokingly made it sound. It’s actually a pretty interesting conversation worth listening to.
My favorite part of the conversation is when Seth discussed having a Dad in the NBA and telling an amusing story about him at the age of 10 in 5th grade and Steph (around 7th or 8th grade) playing in shooting games with the Toronto Raptors around 2000.
“He brought us around all the time and sometimes they would let us jump in shoot around games. We had Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Mugsy Bogues, and we were still some of the best shooters in the gym when it came to spot shooting.
“We could shoot threes. When you would pick teams in shooting games, we would be one of the top picks. We were getting picked before NBA players, before some of the big men got picked. I mean, we could shoot it.”
And they can still shoot a little. Seth averaged a career-high 12.8 points a game thias past season, while shooting a career-best 48% from the field and 85% from the free throw line. He also averaged career highs in assists (2.7) and rebounds (2.5).
