Stephen Curry reacts on his family’s coin-flip antics


Given the fact that the match between the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers is a must-watch game, fans also wanted to see the Curry brothers battling out to get the Western Conference title. Stephen and Seth became the first brothers in the NBA history to face against each other in the conference finals.

Thanks to Steph and Seth’s sister Sydel Curry-Lee’s series of tweets, we now know who Dell and Sonya Curry will root for in what is probably the most important coin-flip on the West Coast. Sonya is rooting for Seth and the Portland Trail Blazers, while Dell is rooting for Steph and the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors.

As the whole Curry family watched the game live at the Oracle Arena, Stephen admitted he took glimpses of his family. Dell and Sonya Curry were near in the center court.

“We’ve been talking about it for the last couple days, about how special it is,” Stephen said. The Curry couple were wearing split jerseys made up of half of Stephen’s No. 30 Warriors jersey and half of Seth’s No. 31 Blazers jersey

“Obviously, we’ve played plenty of games now on the same court, and you understand what that vibe is like. But on this stage, trying to chase a Finals appearance, it’s pretty surreal.” Stephen shared.

He added, “I think I caught myself a couple times looking up in the stands at my parents, who did the whole coin-flip thing, and they can’t help themselves. So, any time either one of us did something good, they both were clapping. So, they got to fix themselves.”

Stephen also found it weird that his family was torn between supporting him and Seth.

“I told my mom, ‘Who are you with?’ When I made a shot, I saw her stand up and cheer, and I saw her in all-Portland gear. It’s just weird. It’s probably more nerve-wracking for them in terms of just trying to get settled into what this series is going to mean.” (Janiel Abby Toralba)
