Steph Curry, Seth childhood video perfect for National Brother's Day

In the age of quarantine, days of the week have become irrelevant. Holidays, however, have not ... no matter how obscure they are.

As people around the country celebrate Memorial Day Weekend (hopefully in safe ways, you know who you are), Sunday marks National Brother's Day. And the holiday can't go on without the mention of Steph and Seth Curry, which brings us to this clip from their childhood. 

The Curry brothers, no matter how small and slender, have been getting up shots since Day 1. That includes in other countries, too, as their father, Dell, played his final three NBA seasons with the Toronto Raptors. 

It's no secret what a success the brothers have grown to be. Steph helped change basketball forever while turning the Warriors into a dynasty to go with his two MVP awards and three championship rings.

Meanwhile, Seth, the younger of the two brothers, has carved out a niche as a 3-point specialist off the bench. While Steph is beloved for his ability to nail any shot from any distance, Seth's 44.3 shooting percentage from beyond the arc is the second best of all time. He only trails Warriors coach Steve Kerr, whose 45.4 percent is the greatest ever. 

Warriors fans can dream of having the Curry brothers on the same Golden State roster, but it seems that likely never will happen.

"Honestly, I've thought about it. Earlier in my career, I had some opportunities to play on the Warriors and go there and obviously take a much lesser role," Seth said on Austin Rivers' "Go Off" podcast. "I always turned them down because I never really wanted to play on his (Steph's) team.

"I'd rather compete against him. I'm going to be compared to him and somewhat in his shadow whether I'm on his team or not, so it's going to multiply if I were on the same team, so I like to create my own path and do my own thing."

There's no doubt these two will be competing against each other again in the near future, creating a win-win (or maybe lose-lose) situation for Dell and Sonya Curry, just like they did in the Western Conference finals last season.

Why haven't Steph and Seth Curry been teammates on the Warriors?

There's a pretty simple explanation actually.

Houston Rockets guard Austin Rivers has a podcast named "Go Off," and that's where Seth shared the details.

"Honestly, I've thought about it. Earlier in my career, I had some opportunities to play on the Warriors and go there and obviously take a much lesser role," Seth said. "I always turned them down because I never really wanted to play on his (Steph's) team.

"I'd rather compete against him. I'm going to be compared to him and somewhat in his shadow whether I'm on his team or not, so it's going to multiply if I were on the same team, so I like to create my own path and do my own thing."

There's nothing wrong with that and it's very admirable. Seth had to fight for everything he's gotten.

After two years in the G League -- he spent 2013-14 with the Santa Cruz Warriors and 2014-15 with the Erie BayHawks --  he finally got his first extended NBA opportunity with the Sacramento Kings in 2015-16.

He then signed a two-year, $6 million contract with the Dallas Mavericks in 2016 and missed the entire 2017-18 season because of a left leg injury, before joining the Portland Trail Blazers on a two-year deal worth $5.6 million in 2018.

Last summer, Seth declined his player option with the Blazers and returned to the Mavs on a four-year contract that will pay him a guaranteed $32 million.

He did his own thing, and it paid off in a big way.

Did Steph ever push Seth to join the Warriors?

"He's kind of been the other way, too," Seth told Rivers. "He's kind of pushed me the other way -- in the other direction. He wants me to create my own path, do my thing.

"He knows what kind of pressure I get under when compared against him. He knows what it would be like."

Now that's some brotherly love.

And in case you're curious, Seth married Callie Rivers -- Austin's younger sister -- last September.

W I F E. Happy Birthday to the one that does both!

A post shared by Seth Curry (@sdotcurry) on

“When you hear your sister is dating an NBA player, you’re like, ‘Oh s--t,'"Austin told Marc Spears of The Undefeated last April. “NBA players travel a lot. There is a reputation. You don’t want your sister to get hurt.

"But when I heard it was Seth, I was relieved because he is one of the guys that act the right way.”

Seth Curry picks two for shooting competition along with Steph, Dell

Seth Curry picks two for shooting competition along with Steph, Dell

Steph Curry is the greatest 3-point shooter in the history of basketball.

Boom, end of story.

His dad, Dell, shot 40.19 percent from deep over his 16-year NBA career, while making 1,245 3s -- the 62nd most ever.

Steph's brother, Seth, owns the second-best career 3-point mark at 44.32 percent.

And speaking of Seth --  he recently was a guest on "The JJ Redick Podcast" and was asked the following question:

Redick: "Let's say you're in a shooting game -- five shooters (on each) side. Three of your shooters are you and your two family members. Who are your other two shooters? A lot of money on the line."

Seth: "One is gonna be Ray Allen for sure. Give me Ray Allen. I'm gonna ride with JJ Redick. That was my guy growing up. When I went on my visit (to Duke), I think Coach (Mike Krzyzewski) knew. He pulled me into the video room and he had the JJ Redick senior (year) highlight tape playing. It hooked me in from there."

If Seth didn't include Redick, there's no way he ever would have been invited back on the pod! All kidding aside, Redick is a great choice. 

He is at 41.57 percent so far, and is tied for the 14th-most makes at 1,860.

Allen shot over 40 percent for his career, and is No. 1 all time in made 3s with 2,973.

So who would these five go against? Yours truly is gonna go with ...

...  Klay Thompson, Reggie Miller, Steve Kerr, Steve Nash and Kyle Korver.

Now that would be a lot of fun to watch.
