Seth Curry -- not Steph -- is on pace to do something no NBA player has ever done before

  Seth Curry -- not Steph -- is on pace to do something no NBA player has ever done before Normally, when we're talking about a Curry doing something crazy in the NBA, we're talking about Steph. Not this time, though. It's his brother, Seth Curry, who is actually on the verge of making some pretty incredible NBA history. We've all heard of the illustrious…We’ve all heard of the illustrious 50/40/90 club. It’s when a player shoots at least 50% from the field, 40% from the 3-point line and 90% from the free-throw line.

Well, Seth Curry is about to find out. The 30-year-old Curry was traded from the Mavericks to the 76 ers — now coached by Doc Rivers, his wife’s father — in a 2020 NBA Draft night trade Wednesday night that sent shooting guard Josh Richardson and the No. 36 pick (Colorado forward Tyler Bey) to “Having a truly gravity elite shooter really changes the dynamic for Ben and Joel,” 76 ers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey said told reporters after the trade went down. “Those who watch the Sixers up close and personal — like you have longer than me — when Joel and Ben have had that

As for Seth Curry , he'll get to reunite with his father-in-law, Doc Rivers, in Philadelphia. Though the lesser-known of the Curry brothers, Seth has started to make a name for himself over the last few seasons and has established himself as an elite 3-point threat. Dallas trade grade: B+. Richardson projects to fit well in Dallas, as he can play alongside Luka Doncic on the offensive end, and also serve as Dallas' primary perimeter defender. Doncic carries a large load for the Mavericks on the offensive end, so it's important that they have a player who can take some pressure off him defensively, and

Mark Cuban is known for making great business decisions.

He’s got a seat in the “Shark Tank,” after all.

According to Seth Curry, however, Cuban made a bad one dealing him to Philadelphia this past offseason.

Curry insisted Thursday night that there were no hard feelings when he and the 76ers beat the Dallas Mavericks 111-97. Cuban, he said, simply got it wrong.

“Never nothing personal, man,” Curry said, via USA Today. “I got a lot of respect for a lot of those guys over there. I just think they made a bad business decision, but it happens all the time, you know what I’m saying? It is what it is.”

Mavs traded Curry for Josh Richardson

Curry was dealt to Philadelphia in November in exchange for Josh Richardson and a future draft pick. Though it’s early, Curry is having a career season with his new team.

Seth Rogen, Lauren Rogen call for paid family and medical leave in op-ed

  Seth Rogen, Lauren Rogen call for paid family and medical leave in op-ed Comedian Seth Rogen and actor Lauren Rogen called for a national paid family and medical leave policy in a new op-ed. The couple shared in a piece published Saturday by CNN that Lauren Rogen's mother died last year after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease 15 years ago."As part of her care team, we learned what it meant to parent a parent as the illness cheated Lauren's mother of her ability to do for herself the daily tasks we take for granted, from eating to bathing to dressing," the couple wrote. "We lived those early years in the shadows in a way -- it was a time when people quietly whispered about the disease.

The Dallas Mavericks juggled the mix of sidekicks for star point guard Luka Doncic on draft night — with their first-round pick and through a trade . The Mavericks took Arizona's Josh Green at No. 18 overall Wednesday night, adding a backcourt mate for Doncic as they continue to build around the 21-year-old sensation and fellow European star Kristaps Porzingis. Dallas changed its lineup of guards further by trading Seth Curry to Philadelphia for Josh Richardson and another second-round pick.

The Dallas Mavericks faced off against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night in their second scrimmage game inside the NBA bubble in Orlando. The Dallas Mavericks started Luka Doncic, Tim Hardaway Jr., Maxi Kleber, Dorian Finney-Smith and Seth Curry . The Mavs will play one more scrimmage games inside the Orlando bubble before moving onto seeding games leading up to the NBA playoffs. The other scrimmage game will be played against an Eastern Conference team in the Philadelphia 76 ers .

Curry is averaging 12.9 points, a career-high, with 2.7 assists while shooting better than 45 percent from behind the arc — among the best in the league. He’s a consistent starter for the 76ers now too, after only starting 25 games last season in Dallas.

The 30-year-old put up 15 points while shooting 6-of-9 from the field on Thursday night, too.

Perhaps most importantly, though, the 76ers are winning. They’ve won four of their last five, and are atop the standings in the Eastern Conference.

The Mavericks, on the other hand, are just 15-16. While they’ve won six of their last eight, it was slow going at the beginning of the year. Richardson’s stats are fairly identical to Curry’s, too, as he’s averaging 12.9 points and 2.6 assists per game in Dallas.

As for the 76ers, they did blow a huge lead against the Rockets on Wednesday but thank god for Joel Embiid who kept them in the game and they were able to pull off the win 118-113.

The 76 ers held the Mavericks to a season low for a half while taking a 50-41 halftime lead. A lead fueled by seven steals, including one by Furkan Korkmaz for a reverse dunk on a breakaway, could have been bigger if not for 2-of-19 shooting on 3s in the first half. The countries whose citizens were killed when Iran accidentally shot down a Ukrainian jetliner said Friday they want Iran “to deliver justice and make sure Iran makes full reparations to the families of the victims and affected countries.”

In the end, Curry doesn’t seem to mind the deal. He’s playing better than he ever has before. And, he’s on a team sitting in first place fresh off another win.

“[It was just] another night to go out and get a win and play well as a team,” Curry said, via USA Today. “That’s the ultimate goal is to get a win, so the main thing was good to see a lot of my guys all down at the end of the floor, and just catch up, and then play again.”
