The Western Conference Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers is also a matchup of the Curry brothers. Steph gets to go head-to-head with his younger sibling Seth.
The two have played each other in the NBA before, and no doubt faced off in many battles growing up as kids. That doesn’t make it any less of a big deal now though.
Steph, 31, was asked about facing Seth, 28, this week. He gave a pretty eye-opening and honest answer.
Sure, Steph is a competitor, but there’s definitely a little bit of a familial soft spot when he’s on the court with his brother.
