Curry parents can now relax after agonizing Warriors-Blazers series
Dell and Sonya Curry can finally decompress after enduring the stressful ordeal of watching sons Stephen and Seth compete during the Western Conference Finals series between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers.
The Warriors punched their ticket for a fifth consecutive appearance in the NBA Finals after completing a sweep with Monday’s 119-117 overtime victory over the Blazers. The matchup marked the first time brothers have competed against one another in a conference final, leaving the Curry parents understandably conflicted.
While Dell and Sonya Curry figured out how to support both of their sons by way of each parent donning a different jersey, to say it was nevertheless an agonizing experience would be an understatement, as illustrated what the two had to say while watching Game 4 from the stands.
“Is there any room for fun here?” a reporter asked their father, who replied, “No not at all she’s very stressed,” referring to their mother, via CBS News.
“We thought it would be a lot of fun, it’s not so much fun,” he said. “It was really hard getting ourselves prepared for not being all in for one child.”
The elder Curry, 31, unsurprisingly felt sympathy for Seth, 28, but sees big things out of his younger brother in the years to come.
“I mean, somebody had to lose, but this is just the beginning for him and his career,” Stephen said. “We’ll remember this for the rest of our lives.”
Seth, meanwhile, took to Instagram to salute his brother and celebrate how the two made NBA history in the Warriors-Blazers matchup.
The Curry brothers showdown rightfully made for a fascinating storyline in the series, but the dynastic Warriors proved yet again with a convincing sweep that they remain the NBA’s marquee organization, even in the absence of an injured Kevin Durant. It’s unfortunate– and not a shock — that their parents suffered through the experience.
