Indeed, Paul George, atedSeth Curry’s wife, Callie Rivers, before her marriage. According to their sources, George cheated on Callie and left her.

He is a big fan of his big brother “Steven Curry.”

The world must be making huge comparisons between the brothers from the same house as they are enrolled in the same profession. But Seth never allows those comparisons to pressure him.

Seth is entirely okay with his brother Stephen’s phenomenal career.  He loves Stephen and adores him for being a genuine, caring brother.

They both were encountered together in the 2019 playoffs, where Seth was playing for the Trail Blazers and, on the other hand, were the Warriors.

However, the Warriors were announced as the series’ winners of all four games. The duo remained the talk-of-the-town as the brothers had a face-off against each other for the first time.

According to the Bleacher report, this is what Seth has to say about the special relationship that he has with his brother-

“His success doesn’t change the conversation between us at all. He’s the same person he was in high school. He’s a low-key guy and wants to stay out of the spotlight. When we go out, people want to take pictures no matter where he is. That’s great to see, but you can tell that’s not really what he’s about. He likes hanging out with his family and friends. When we’re off the court, we talk about stuff other than basketball. We probably talk about basketball 25 percent of the time. His success is beneficial to me. I’m not really at the point of looking ahead and comparing myself to what he’s doing or what he did and competing with him. I have always wanted to run my race. I would rather  “Be my person and be the best me I can be.”

Stephen also showered his courage on his brother when Seth was back in Dallas.
