Why Seth Curry believes Steph should return to Warriors this season


It arguably has been the most divisive question to face Warriors fans this season.

Should star Steph Curry return to the court in a season where Golden State almost certainly won’t be in contention for anything other than a lottery pick, or should the two-time MVP sit out the remainder of the season and come back fully rested and healthy in 2020-21 along with fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson?

Since he broke his hand in late October, Curry and everyone else around the Warriors organization has been steadfast in promoting the idea of Steph re-joining the lineup. His brother Seth, a guard with the Dallas Mavericks, also hopes to see Steph retake the court this year.

“Yeah, you want to get your rhythm back,” Curry told NBA.com. “You don’t want to sit a full year. That’s never good. When you love to play like he does.

“He’s been trying to get back and be patient with his health. You never want to sit out a full year. He’s trying to come back and play and give these fans a show. That’s what it’s about at the end of the day. It’s about putting on a show for the fans and that’s what he’s trying to do.”

Seth --the NBA’s active leader in career 3-point percentage -- also reflected on the idea that his brother might be in the stands watching the Mavericks in the postseason, as opposed to years past when it was the other way around for the duo.

 “Yeah, it might be weird,” Curry said. “He’s only been to a playoff game of mine when he was playing in it. So yeah, that might be a little weird.”

Things could get back to normal for Steph and the Warriors this week, as coach Steve Kerr hopes Curry can be back on the floor at Chase Center on Thursday night when Golden State hosts the Toronto Raptors.
