Shooting Guard, Brooklyn Nets
Seth Curry, shooting guard for the Brooklyn Nets in the NBA, was born on August 23, 1990, in Charlotte, NC. He grew up the child of former NBA player, Dell Curry, and former Virginia Tech Women’s volleyball player, Sonya Curry. Seth and his two siblings, Stephen & Sydel, followed suit to athletic prominence. His older brother Stephen is the starting point guard for the Golden State Warriors, and his younger sister, Sydel, played volleyball at Elon University.
Seth attended Charlotte Christian School, graduating in 2008 and on the academic honor roll all four years. After high school, Curry chose to attend Liberty University where he broke the conference single-season scoring record as a freshman and led the nation in average points per game among all freshmen. After his historic year at Liberty, Curry returned to his native North Carolina and transferred to Duke University, and garnered All-ACC and All-American honors.
Despite going undrafted following his time at Duke, Seth proved he belonged in the NBA by standing out as an All-Star in the NBA D-League early in his career. Since then, Curry has established himself as a go-to player in the NBA, playing for Sacramento, Dallas, Portland, Philadelphia, and now Brooklyn. Over the past two seasons, Seth ranked third in the NBA in three-point shooting. In addition, currently, Seth ranks second in NBA history in career three-point percentage (44.3%), behind only current Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr.
Outside of basketball, Seth is very close with his family. That strong bond has continued with the next generation of Currys, and Seth is known lovingly by his two nieces and nephew as “Super Uncle.” After empowering his nieces from a young age, Seth is now a proud “Girl Dad” himself. Seth and his wife Callie, daughter of NBA head coach and former player Doc Rivers, are enjoying watching their two-year-old daughter grow up before their eyes. When not on the court or with his family, Seth can be found on the golf course, gaming with his teammates, and out supporting his local community.
Inspired by his mother’s career as a teacher, Seth has always seen the importance of youth education and community work. He created the Seth Curry Foundation to provide children with the educational and technological resources they need to succeed through unique programming. One of these programs, Venture, encourages kids to think like an entrepreneur and guide them through the journey of starting their own business.
