What I’m Hearing: USA TODAY Sports’ Jeff Zillgitt discusses the recent comments from Magic Johnson who painted a dysfunctional picture of the Lakers’ front office.
Older brothers usually get the best of their younger brothers, and that proved to be true yet again in the Western Conference finals when Steph Curry led the Golden State Warriors to a four-game sweep of Seth Curry and the Portland Trail Blazers.
Golden State rallied from 17 down in Game 4 to win 119-117 in overtime and advance to the NBA Finals for a fifth straight season.
Steph Curry was dominant once again, scoring 37 points and recording a triple-double as he sent his younger brother home for the summer.
This has to be bittersweet for their parents, too, because while Seth Curry is going home, the parents only had to watch this matchup four times. It was pretty stressful for them and now it’s over.
And the two brothers shared a special moment after the final whistle, exchanging jerseys and a hug:
Steph later told ESPN that he’ll hang his brother’s jersey up in his house somewhere and it will be something he’ll never forget.
What a cool thing for that family experience.
Now it’s time for Steph to experience the NBA Finals… yet again.
