When Golden State and Portland hit the hardwood for Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, NBA history will be made. For the first time ever, two brothers will face off against each other in a finals game.
After the Trail Blazers secured their place on Sunday afternoon with a victory over the Nuggets, Warriors star Steph Curry reached out to his, now opponent, younger brother.
Speaking to reporters, Seth revealed, “(Stephen) texted me right after the game and he said, ‘I’ll see you Tuesday.'”
Seth also admitted, “It’s going to be fun to be out there on the court, competing to get to that final. It’s a dream come true for us two, obviously, but our families are going to have a lot of fun with it as well.”
The Curry’s have to make a decision now that both sons Steph and Seth will face off in the Western Conference finals. However, neither parent will don a split jersey featuring both teams.
Dell Curry and his wife, Sonya, will instead flip a coin. Heads puts Sonya in Blazers gear, with Dell in Warriors colors. Tails nets the reverse.
Both parents plan to be at all seven contests, sitting with Steph’s wife Ayesha at Golden State home games, and with Seth’s fiance Callie Rogers in Portland.
