Charlotte, N.C. – Steph Curry could not put a price on what it meant to return to his hometown for All-Star Weekend.
He will, however, have a hefty and ongoing debt to pay if he loses tonight’s 3-point shooting contest to his younger brother, Seth. The two have a bet going that could have repercussions for years to come.
“Whoever loses has to pick up the tab for all the tickets for anytime we play against each other for the rest of our careers,” Curry said. “The stakes are high, considering how many people show up for our games. I’ve got to get the best of him tonight. I know he’s very confident.”
Curry appeared to be equally confident.
“I hope he got a good night’s sleep last night,” Curry said with a chuckle. “Although, there’s no such thing as sleeping when we come back to Charlotte for All-Star Weekend. I have to have the Energizer Bunny mentality.”

Curry played 42 games at Belk Arena, but he had never spent a minute with the Davidson student section before the Wildcats’ 80-72 victory over Saint Joseph’s. …read more
