From the “City of Brotherly Love” I bring you a story about brotherly love. Because as the Sixers continue to inch their way closer towards a parade on broad street the bandwagon is growing bigger and bigger. And the most recent addition is a former NBA MVP who is cheering for the Sixers from across the country. Two time MVP (and 2021 NBA MVP finalist) Steph Curry is cheering his brother on since his Golden State Warriors failed to make the playoffs.
He recently did an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle where he stated that hes become a Sixers fan.
“I’m a pseudo-Sixer fan now,” Stephen said, predicting a Philadelphia-Utah Finals, with Philadelphia winning and Seth Curry named Finals MVP.
There was also the instagram shoutout Steph gave Seth after Seth dropped a playoff career high of 31 points on the Wizards.
Is this remotely surprising? No. Not one bit. Does it make me smile to know that one of, if not the best player in the game is cheering for the same team I’m cheer for? You betcha!
