Curry brothers wore matching shoes for Mavs-Warriors tilt (pics)
The longstanding sibling rivalry between Seth Curry and Stephen Curry was again taken to another level Tuesday night as the Dallas Mavericks squared off with the Golden State Warriors. And the brother-against-brother match-up was celebrated by both Currys rocking matching “Family Business” Under Armour Curry 3 sneakers.

The shoes feature blues in the style befitting both the Warriors and Mavericks. “LNDS” and “CCS” also are featured on the lace tips in a nod the Lake Norman Day School and Charlotte Christian School the Currys attended, as noted by The Vertical’s Nick DePaula.
The “Shotgun!!!” emblazoned upon the sneakers’ sockline is a celebration of the reward the winning brother got by winning their childhood 1-on-1 battles, as whoever came out on top got the front seat next to father Del Cury.
“Our favorite thing to do as kids was get home from school as early as we could to ride to the game with Dad,” Seth Curry said recently on The Vertical Podcast. “Riding to the game with dad also meant they could sneak in a few shots at the Charlotte Coliseum.”
But brotherly love, even in a childhood relationship filled with bitter on-court battles, can only go so far. Steph’s Warriors squad easily handled Seth’s Mavs to the tune of a 112-87 victory, making the elder Curry 6-0 against his younger brother on the NBA stage.
“It was a lot of fun until the game started and they were beating up on us,” Seth said of the game.
