Steph Curry's younger brother Seth Curry currently plays in the NBA as a shooting guard for the Dallas Mavericks. Seth was recently on Austin Rivers' Uninterrupted podcast Go Off with Austin Rivers, where he discussed playing for the Golden State Warriors and with his elder brother. Seth revealed why he chooses not to play with Steph even though he had multiple opportunities to do so.
While talking to Rivers, Seth revealed that he has 'had some opportunities to play on the Warriors' where he would assume a much lesser role. However, the Mavericks star refused them as he 'never really wanted to play' with Steph Curry. He explained that when he is constantly going to he 'compared to him and somewhat in his shadow', he would like to play against him.
Seth Curry believes that if they were on the same team, their comparisons would increase, which is why he wants to create his 'own path' so that he can do his 'own thing'. Rivers also asked him if Steph has ever asked him to play with the team, Seth Curry said that the Warriors star always 'pushed' him 'in the other direction' so he could create his own way, well aware of the pressures his younger brother could be under if they were in the same team.
