Dell and Sonya Curry have an enviable problem: they have to figure out which son's jersey to wear while watching the NBA Western Conference Championship series between the Golden State Warriors and the Portland Trailblazers.

When Portland's Seth Curry, 28, and the Warriors' Steph Curry, 31, face each other in Game 1 tonight, they will be the first set of brothers to play in a NBA Conference Championship series.

After leading the Trailblazers to their first Western Conference Finals in two decades, CJ McCollum, 27, approached Steph and Seth's dad, Dell Curry, and asked him which of his sons' jerseys he would wear to the championship series. "Gotta flip a coin," Dell responded.

According to ESPN's The Jump host Rachel Nichols, Dell and Sonya reached a tentative compromise. They will flip a coin before every game to determine which jersey to wear.

Every parent has a favorite child, and the Currys are no different. Rumor has it that Dell's favorite son is Steph, while Sonya also favors Steph. So even their compromise is fraught with tension and high drama. In other words: flipping a coin won't be easy.

"Well, we have to flip to see who flips first," Dell explained. "There's going to be a lot of coin flipping going on."

  • 11pink123

    Why don’t they just get a special jersey made for them both? Or do like Eli and Peyton Manning’s parents did. The mom wore one jersey and the Dad wore another. Not that hard to figure out, and I’m pretty sure they seen how the Mannings handled it.

  • Alextra Ballard

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Don't wear a jersey and cheer for both.

  • Love Luv

    How about both? When I attend games I enjoy the experience. Then again I’m not a crazy fanatic of anyone. I’m just there with my littles to enjoy the game. I would think it would be all fun and proudness with their family. Super cool to be in this position!

  • Love Luv

    Yes! Me too. Such positive energy!

  • xenaD

    Where’s the fun in that?! Such a historic moment. But imagine if mom gets Stéphs Jersey every flip lol

  • Scromes1212

    To be fair 99% of the black women in America could never understand what she going through

  • Phillybruh

    One kid is in to sports and the other science fairs, don't have this problem...lol One parent wear a jersey that represents each team.

  • A D N

    Design a shirt with front and back or side by side of both teams. I will not divide myself but I understand this family is about competitiveness. May the best TEAM win! This is another Serena and Venus situation. The baby always have a point to make.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Exactly....it ain rocket science

  • Nita Pie

    THey have no choice but to cheer for both, its a win win situation. Glad it happen while they adults, if they were children would've been an issue maybe but they grown who cares

  • Love Luv

    I remember science fairs! I always wanted to do something cool but ah well. I mastered those spelling bee’s though! Kudos to both your babies doing their thing. I am sure they are amazing !

  • A D N

    Good point, but just because I won, doesn't mean I shouldn't continue to win. Just take me down if you can lol.

  • Love Luv

    True. Healthy competition. Goal !

  • A D N

    You are crazy lol! That poor woman ain't gone live that down lol.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Dad.. just wear a Warriors jacket and a Trailblazers jersey under it, and Mom... wear a Trailblazers jacket with a Warriors jersey under it.
    Problem solved. Next caller.

  • A D N

    Stop the hate lol.

  • PhillyFacts

    Dad could wear one teams jersey, and mom the other. Then they switch jerseys for the next game that way they’ll always be supportive of both sons during the entire conference.

  • Love Luv

    I read that in the Coming to America voice. Lol. “Who’s next?!”

  • Yardgirl

    Was trying to figure out how to say it nicely and you just did!! LMAO!!

  • BythegraceofGodIcanexplain

    We should cheer out more winning like this, Spirit -free.

  • Scromes1212

    I was thinking the same thing smh we look at the younger one as a knockoff version of the older one when they really just doing them. That's got to be tough

  • hottlanta

    I was caught in the same situation with my lilhots. It was fun l cheered for both of them. Cheer for both n thank god they r handling their business n keep it moving.

    Could have easily got Jerseys made with one son on the front & the other on the back. Too easy.

  • Kanyade
  • CardiB’sAbs

    Right! Even though Ayeesha gets on my nerves at times, she seems to be a good mom and have good intentions. I like the Curry’s mom she seems patient. It’s one heck of an accomplishment to raise productive beings.

  • GAPeach

    Rumor has it that Dell's favorite son is Steph, while Sonya also favors Steph.

    You so damn messy sometimes.

  • Just Me

    Have a jersey made that represents both team. Support both children. There case closed.?????

  • Slickone

    Just go 4 the home team?????

  • sunni_daze

    Damn internet moves fast.

  • MsPam

    Dale is handsome to me, Sonya is beautiful. I have Portland in six.

  • Shawty

    Yup...that way you supporting both.

  • Blak

    Very sad that parents think they actually have to choose between kids and not support both. SMDH

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yes indeed he is

  • Shawty

    Apparently it is for them...giggles

  • Shawty

    Don't wear jersey's at all. Just show up to each game and support both sons. Hoop and holler for both of them when they score. REAL SIMPLE!

  • Alextra Ballard

    You’re absolutely correct

  • Renee26

    Cute... They can cheer on both. Win-Win attitude

  • Renee26

    Or cut them down the middle and sew them together

  • Topic Influencer

    Seth is garbage personified on the court, so he needs the family cheering section more than Wardell Jr/Steph https://media3.giphy.com/media/4GIvR6cmYs8jC/giphy.gif

  • Topic Influencer

    No Seth really does well NOT SUCK But. He is not good. He is barely mediocore.

  • Renee26

    Wait.. Solange wrote a lot of Beys hits... But Bey is more popular and a more exciting performer.

    Does that mean Seth has the real talent and Steph has the sparkle??

  • Topic Influencer

    No it does not mean that. Seth wasnt even drafted. He had to go to the D-League and get in that way.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    No, not even close. Nice try, though. ?

    Yeah. I was trying to be nice.

    Parents, please chime in. Does every parent have a favorite child? LOL

    I don’t. I love mine equally. I parent them equally.

    Perhaps this isn’t on par with basketball fanaticism, BUT I’d wear my kids’ faces? Or the colors of both teams? LOL

  • Renee26

    ? that was me being petty ... Ion follow sports so idk what his record looks like, I figured it wasn't that good considering I just learned he existed today ?

  • OvertheMississippi

    I have to take Xanax just to watch my son and daughter compete against strangers. No way I'd be able to watch my kids play against each other. They aren't "cheering" that either wins because they have sense enough to know that one of the kids WILL win. Duhhhh! LOL

    This is exactly why. Unless you are a college basketball head like me, chances are you totally wouldnt know about Seth. I was familar bc he played ACC ball for Duke. He went straight to the D-League after college and JUST came outta even that not too long ago.

  • ThisIsWhat43LooksLike

    I have a daughter 23 and a son 19 and I honestly don’t have a favorite. I’m like you, I love and parent them equally as well. Now my mom on the other hand has a favorite and it’s my brother. We’re almost 10 years apart and she didn’t want anymore kids. I was a surprise ?

  • Look@m3

    She loves my two kids to death and they love her. She poured into them the love she didn’t give me.

I on the other hand I live 3 miles away, I go plant flowers her old a$$ started and got to "down in her back" to complete that I TOLD her she wouldn't be able to do, I cook, I clean, I do everything her and my step-dad ask, my son goes over and does yard work, but.... I still aint SH!t. Periodt. But that's ok. He can be that. I WAS my grandaddy's favorite though. IJS!!

    Having a favorite doesn’t mean you don’t love them equally, it usually who shares your personality and interests.

  • R Smith

    Ok! However, I read an article whereby she called herself "black"!

    Just read another article "Sonya is African-American Creole and Haitian ethnic background from both her parent’s side." In any event, she's very pretty and was a star athlete (volleyball). Seems like a great family!
