“NBA Summer League: Where Dreams Are Made.” For Seth Curry, he is on the verge of realizing his lifelong dream of becoming a keeper in the NBA. Sure, Seth has had a cup of coffee in the Association during cameo appearances with Memphis, Cleveland, and Phoenix but no one could find a permanent spot for the combo guard on their roster.
Curry has a lot of limitations but he can flat-out score. In the past, his offensive arsenal was mainly deep jumpers but he has transformed into a decent creator off the dribble and is going to the basket more and more.
Despite being sieve on defense, Curry can get enough buckets to offset his deficiencies on that end. There is always a spot on a team for a shot creator and/or scorer off the bench. The list is endless…Gary Neal, Ben Gordon, Aaron Brooks, Lou Williams, JJ Barea, and so forth.
After patiently waiting and biding his time in the D-League, Seth is poised to become the latest success story to hone his talents and develop before having an impact in the NBA. You can bet Curry is hungrier than ever after seeing his older brother, Steph, have one of most impressive seasons (regular-season MVP, Finals MVP, NBA Champion, Best Male Athlete: ESPYs) in history. He has all of the tools to be an excellent Sixth Man before long.

Curry’s gotten better at his floater, is more comfortable attacking off pin downs and is still a lights-out shooter with his feet set. Here’s a look at Curry’s new game:
