Seth Curry to Older Brother Steph on Ankle Injury: “Suck it Up”
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is officially the best shooter in the NBA today. His flawless shooting stroke combined with his underrated ability to pass make Steph one of the best young point guards in the league. And after dropping 54 on the New York Knicks in Madison Squad Garden earlier this season, on the verge of becoming a superstar.
But if you follow Steph you know there is one thing that could keep him from achieving his immense potential. He has almost glass-like ankles.
So when he suffered an ankle injury in Game 2 in the Warriors first round match-up with the Denver Nuggets, fans around the world cringed. But it didn’t phase his younger brother and Duke guard Seph Curry from passing along some rather pointed advice to his star sibling.
“I told him to suck it up,” Seth Curry told USA TODAY Sports after the Warriors downed the Nuggets 110-108 at Oracle Arena to take a 2-1 series lead. “He knows I played all year with an injury. It’s a different situation, but I knew he’d do whatever it takes to play.”
Older brother Steph subsequently dropped 29 points and 11 assists in the Warriors game 3 victory over the Denver Nuggets. Perhaps he should listen to his little brother more often.
