Seth Curry has gotten used to watching his brother Steph advance deep into the NBA knockout round year after year, as the Warriors make their way to the NBA Finals in each of the past five seasons.
But 2019-20 saw the script turned upside down for the Curry family, as his Seth and Dallas Mavericks would be among the eight Western Conference teams in the 2019-20 playoffs, while Steph and Golden State ended up at bottom of the Western rankings, with a 15 -50 spot before the NBA season’s suspension in March.
“For most of my career, I’ve been the one at home watching Steph at the end of the season,” Seth told Marc Stein of the New York Times. “Now it’s the opposite and I̵7;m still working. I can say it was a bit difficult for him. “

Steph told Stein he feels a bit “FOMO” about the Warriors being not among the 22 NBA teams originally selected to play in the NBA reboot in Orlando, Fla.
“Obviously I was very happy to see basketball back on TV, but the first week I got a big FOMO (fear of missing out),” he told Marc Stein of The New York Times on Sunday night. “Once you saw Bron (LeBron James) and Kawhi (Leonard) and PG (Paul George) join it, and you remember the fun feeling of playing in those kinds of games and that kind of level, you missed out. it’s in a bad way. “
The two-time NBA MVP has played just five games this season after breaking his arm at the start of the season, and with Splash Brother Klay Thompson’s colleague Klay Thompson missed the entire season while injury returns after an ACL suffered torn, there’s not much hope for a return to the NBA Finals this season.

Hypothetically, having nine months to recover before the 2020-21 season will be crucial for Thompson and Curry after so many additional playoffs over the past five years.
It’s no surprise that super competitive Steph would be a little jealous of his brother, but he also told Stein he could find himself walking to Orlando with his family to see Seth and the Mavericks if they could. pass the first round of the knockout round.
