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.”
