The Curry's Will Be Flipping a Coin in Deciding Which Son to Root For in the Western Conference Finals
ESPN- "It's going to be so much fun," Sonya Curry told ESPN. "It is. From our end, to see both of our sons to compete at this level and for the goal to be a championship is such a blessing. We never could imagine this."
"One of them might go home. But we're going to the championship!"
"It's going to be fun," he told ESPN. "It's going to lessen our travel schedule. That's the biggest thing. We've been traveling quite a bit. It's been fun, it's been tiresome, but it's about ready to get real now.
"It's a first experience for all of us," he added. "Biggest thing is we are trying to decide who represents who."
Sonya Curry has a solution for which parent will wear Blazers colors and which will wear Warriors gear.
"We are flipping a coin every game," she said.
I'm sorry, flipping a coin? FLIPPING A COIN?!? If I were Seth Curry I'd be flipping a shit, if not heading over to my childhood home to start flipping all the furniture. I get that the Curry's are theoretically in a tough spot with their sons matching up against each other with an NBA Finals appearance on the line, but...like...are they? Are they really?
Other than being front-running and preferential parents who consider one of their pregnancies to be a regrettable mistake, is there actually any justification for rooting for the superstar son who probably spent his time since Game 6 shopping for a bigger trophy case over the younger son whose first chance at glory might well be his last? I get giving diplomatic answers publicly, but I don't even think the Curry's have to considering all else is the farthest thing from equal when it comes to the disproportional career paths of their kids. If Steph were to find himself hurt by his parents being as Portland-proud as most hipsters he'd legitimately be the most selfish sibling in the history of 4+ human households, as even the most distant of cousins should be hoping the Warriors get Trailblazed.
Again, this is probably just a case of Dell and Sonya having sworn themselves to suppress their support one way or the other, but if they absolutely had to pick sides and both weren't strongly on 'Team Seth' then Seth would have every right to go the free agency route in opening himself for recruitment by more deserving parents like Elijah Wood in 'North'...
