Steph Curry and Seth Curry will put their brotherly rivalry on display on Saturday night when they face off in the three-point contest at All-Star Saturday. But there will be a lot more than just pride and a trophy on the line.
According the the Golden State Warriors two-time MVP, the Curry brothers have a side bet in play, and it’s quite a big wager.
“Family’s obviously big for us . . . so we kind of wanted to weave that into the bet,” Steph explained at All-Star Media Day. “So whoever loses has to pick up the tab for all the tickets anytime we play against each other for the rest of our careers. The stakes are high, considering how many people show up for our games, so I got to get the best of him tonight. I know he’s very confident though.”
That’s quite a large bet, since the Curry brothers could conceivably face off another 20 or so times in their careers.
No word on whether the winner of the bet has to win the entire three-point contest for the wager to be valid, but this certainly adds some intensity to the competition.
