Now, I know I haven’t made a post in a while but bare with me. I would like to congratulate Seth Curry on his new deal with the Dallas Mavericks. With that in mind, I’ve decided to do a post on not just Seth, but his sister Sydel as well.
Steph is the oldest of three children to Dell and Sonya Curry. His brother and sister, Seth and Sydel Curry, are the middle and youngest child respectively. Steph has a close relationship with both of them as they all grew up together mainly in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Steph and his brother honed their basketball skills by playing against each other throughout their younger years and later at Charlotte Christian School, while Sydel excelled at Volleyball. Initially, Sydel was also into basketball but volleyball became her main sport over time. One of her recollections of basketball with the boys is being their “Rebound Girl” which means she was tasked with collecting their rebounds and tossing them back the ball. Don’t get the slightest idea that they were bossing her around however, because from a video I saw of the three somewhere on Youtube, she was definitely the bossy one. It was pretty funny seeing the little one as the boss. If I ever find it back I’ll add it to this post.
As mentioned previously, they all attended the same high school, but at different times. Steph is only 2 years older than Seth so they spent some concurrent time at Charlotte Christian School but Sydel is 4 years younger than Seth so she never spent any concurrent time with the boys. By the time she got to high school, both of her brothers had already left to pursue their basketball dreams at a higher level. Steph played 3 years at Davidson and was drafted in the 2009 NBA Draft while Seth played his freshman year at Liberty University then transferred to Duke where he played his junior and senior years (he has to sit out one year due to NCAA transfer rules). He, unfortunately went undrafted, but has worked his way into the NBA and got himself a 2 year guaranteed contract with the Mavericks which again, I’d like to congratulate him on.
I don’t have a fancy ending to this post but you’re welcomed to leave any comments below. Also, if you know the video I was referring to on Youtube, please comment the link!
