By the end of this article, there is no doubt that you will be convinced that Stephen Curry’s family is a very athletic one. Every member of their family possesses the athletic bone, so it’s only natural that it would be their bread and butter. Without further ado, lets jump right into meeting the family starting with Stephen Curry’s brother.
Stephen Curry’s Brother
Seth Adham Curry was born on August 23, 1990, just two years after his big brother Stephen, who was born on March 14, 1988. He is also a professional basketball player, playing for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Seth, alongside his brother got their basketball exposure quite early.
Their dad, Dell Curry, who was formerly in the NBA, would take him and his older brother, Stephen, to his games where they would often shoot around with the team in warm-ups. He also started his basketball career during his days in high school.
In his senior year at Charlotte Christian School, the second Curry brother averaged 22.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists while shooting 52 percent from the field. He was a star athlete back in his university days and at the end of it all, still managed to be named to the All-ACC first team and was named a second team All-American by Sporting News.
Like his father and brother before him, he was drafted by the NBA in the 2014, since then Seth has still been trying to find his footing and make his own long lasting footprint in the sands of basketball. We are all waiting… impatiently if we might add, because there is definitely a lot of untapped potential there.
He is after all, Stephen Curry’s brother.
Stephen Curry’s Sister
When on the topic of his siblings, it’s either about Stephen Curry’s brother or his sister Sydel Curry. The three siblings have been close since the days of their childhood. The boys were thrilled to be having a little sister, in short, the whole family was happy to welcome little Sydel on October 20, 1994.
She was undoubtedly the star of the family before her brothers joined the NBA. She is a strong Christian, like everyone else in her family and does not hesitate to showcase her faith. As we mentioned earlier, every single member of this family has an athletic bone.
The youngest Curry sibling was an exceptional volleyball player in high school and at Elon University, where she is currently a sophomore, she’s a setter on the volleyball team. Also, her current boyfriend, Ricky Brown, was an athlete on the football team and they continue to date… till date.
In more spicy news, in early June a Caveliers fan lost his job as a result of a meant post he tweeted out to Sydel while she was on her way to watch her brother, Stephen’s, game.
That’s enough to get anyone fired from their job, especially when Riley is Sydel’s 3 year old niece. In addition to his termination of appointment, Sydel blocked him, it was well deserved, in our opinion.
Stephen Curry’s Parents
Do not even get us started on this topic… too late! Stephen was born into the home of, Sonya Adams and Dell Curry. Back in the day Dell was also in the NBA, he retired in 2002 and he wasn’t so bad at the game himself. You want proof? He retired as the Charlotte Hornets’ all-time leader in points (9,839) and three-point field goals made (929).
The athlete did not part with sports though, these days he works as a color commentator, alongside Eric Collins and Stephanie Ready, on Charlotte Hornets television broadcasts. He currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, with his wife Sonya Adams, who played volleyball at Virginia Tech.
We told you that the whole family was sports inclined right? Well that proves it. Not only did she play volleyball and basketball star at Virginia Tech, but she also won state championships in both sports. Was this what drove the whole family into competitive sports? Well, Sonya has the answer to that.
According to Hollywood Life, In an interview in 2013 that she and her husband didn’t let their kids play competitively until they were in middle school. She added that they never wanted their kids to feel pressured into playing sports.
The whole family is obviously close knit and supportive of each other in their dreams.
