Today is Seth Curry's birthday. Today's also the day the Warriors announce they've signed him off free agency for training camp. Seth went undrafted despite shooting 17.5 points per game on 46.5 percent in his last season at Duke.
This puts him in the same team as older brother and sports analyst extraordinaire Stephen Curry. The familial bond not only adds an interesting dynamic to the talented Golden State team; it also potentially gives it another long range threat. After three years at Duke, Seth ranks third in school history for three-point percentage (.420), fifth in free throw percentage (.825), and eighth in three-pointers made with 223.
Seth's 2,101 during his college career and Stephen's 2,635 make them the two the highest scoring brothers in college basketball history. Seth accomplished this feat with his 18-point performance last February against Boston College, which moved them pass Tyler and Ben Hansbrough (4,485). Scoring prowess does run in the Curry family blood; their father, Dell, is the Hornets Pelicans all-time leading scorer.
We'll see if Seth fits in with the Warriors, but regardless, his next couple of birthdays have a lot to live up to.
