Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is hunting for his third straight championship and fourth overall. This year has been tough, though. Not because tons of teams are starting to figure them out, but because Curry has to beat several family members en route to the NBA Finals.
As Complex Sports noted, Curry has to get through his family members to chase his fourth ring. In the first round against the LA Clippers, he beat head coach Doc Rivers who is his in-law. In the conference semifinals, the Warriors sharpshooter beat Austin Rivers of the Houston Rockets, his in-law as well. For some context, Callie Rivers — Doc Rivers’ daughter — is married to Seth Curry.

Now, in the Western Conference Finals, Seth and Steph will duel it out against each other. Though it will most likely Damian Lillard or CJ McCollum who’ll be matched up with Steph, there will certainly be times where the brothers will go one-on-one.
And for Dell and Sonya Curry, it will be one difficult showdown to watch. They are definitely proud of what their sons have accomplished. Seth has grown to his own man as a terrific shooter and a key part of the Blazers. Steph, meanwhile, continues to dazzle for the Warriors amid the hoards of defenders trying to put his game off.
Game 1 between the Trail Blazers and Warriors will be on Tuesday, May 14.
