Curry Talks About Pandemic and NBA Memories
Dallas Mavericks sharpshooter Seth Curry opens up on the brewing situation in the world after the NBA was cancelled due to the global pandemic. He explains how his team has helped during the crisis and looked back on some of his best memories in playing the game.
Seth Curry and the Mavericks came up with a huge win in their closing game in the season just when they knew it was going to be their last for now. The Dallas Mavericks has worked hard in helping the community along with team owner Mark Cuban.
‘We have tried to step up to the challenge and do what we can to help the healthcare workers here, the Dallas community any way we can’, said Curry. ‘It’s a rough time for everybody out there and healthcare workers and the first-responders still have to go out to work every day and put their health on the line to keep our community going, keep our country going’.
On that note, Curry looked back on playing for the Dallas Mavericks and how he went on to become one of the team’s most important players in the game. It always has been Curry’s privilege to be honed as one of the shooters in the game.
He believes that the team has a lot of history and a lot of expectations to win and get to the playoffs. For the past 15-20 years, the team has been in the postseason every year aside from the last two.
He thinks that the team’s winning culture is what sets them apart from all the other teams in the NBA. There’s the presence of the great fans, and it is one of the reasons why he wants to be a big part of the team.
Curry grew up in a basketball family. His father Dell was a former NBA player and got to play with some of the best players in the game. His brother Stephen is a two-time MVP and a three-time NBA champion with the Golden State Warriors.
Their showdown in the previous Western Conference Finals showed the winning tradition in the family. Their big competitive spirit has been in the show and it was a sight to behold. Seth claims that it was one of the best moments that he ever had with his brother and he will always treasure it.
Unlike his brother, Seth Curry seemed to be like a late bloomer and didn’t rise to stardom. However, he did put a lot of effort into his game which led him to become the best shooter in the league this season.
‘Everybody starts at a different starting point, everybody has a different journey, but it’s my job to make the most of my opportunities. And it’s not only about getting to the NBA, it’s about staying in the NBA and having a long career’, Seth said of his father’s advice to him in the NBA.
Curry is determined to help his team clinch the playoffs as soon as the league returns from its hiatus. The NBA has plans in playing again in ‘bubble’ areas to hold their games. Although no other info has been given, Curry remains optimistic about the season’s return.
