Tale of the Tape: The Curry Brothers’ Spectacular 2014-15 Seasons

By Brian Kotloff | May 4, 2015

Stephen wasn’t the only Curry who torched nets during the 2014-15 season.

While the newly crowned NBA MVP cooked up highlight after highlight in Golden State, younger brother Seth Curry was quite the chef himself with the NBA Development League’s Erie BayHawks.

In fact, during a breakout sophomore season, Seth turned into, essentially, a minor-league version of his superstar sibling.

Check out their remarkably similar numbers — both averaged 23.8 points per game while leading their respective league in three-pointers made and free-throw percentage — in this Tale of the Tape:

The Quote
Steph on Seth during his emotional Kia MVP speech:

150415_gallery_currys-free-throw

“I’m proud of you, man. We had some battles growing up. You challenged me every single day when we played 1-on-1 in the backyard.

Our games would go on all night, and it would usually end for one of two reasons: One, Mom would come in and say we were disturbing the neighbors, because it was too late and the bouncing ball would make them call over and tell us to shut up over there.

Or two, you’d get mad ’cause I was beating you, and you’d say I was cheating because I wouldn’t give you a foul call. And you’d take the ball and run in until I said, ‘Alright, you can have that foul — check up at the top of the key.’ Those battles, I’ll never forget.

It was a lot of fun, just seeing how you’ve grown and following your career. The sky’s the limit for you. Keep doing what your doing and you keep making the family proud.”

The Reunion: Stephen’s Visit to Showcase

In January, Stephen paid a visit to the NBA D-League Showcase — the league’s premier in-season scouting event — to watch Seth in action against the Iowa Energy. The younger Curry dropped 25 points in the game and the brothers embraced at midcourt when it was all over.

Family Footsteps

Before being traded to the BayHawks last summer, Seth suited up for the Santa Cruz Warriors during his rookie season in 2013-14, starring for the NBA D-League’s Warriors just 70 miles south of Oakland.
