Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry is not having the most ideal playoff run in 2019. Instead of lighting up the stat sheet, he's getting himself in foul trouble and missing uncontested dunks.
With Steph being subjected to criticism throughout the NBA Playoffs, fans had some more fuel after watching his younger brother Seth light it up for the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. Seth scored 16 points in 15 minutes during the first half of the team's Game 4 matchup against the Nuggets.
As this happened, of course Twitter decided to pour pounds of salt into Steph's proverbial open wound.
So the Blazers did that thing where they got the ball from Space Jam, took Steph Curry’s powers, and then gave them to Seth. I’m very here for it.— Sam Vecenie (@Sam_Vecenie) May 5, 2019
It all makes so much sense now. The Monstars (aka the Warriors) got a taste of their own medicine.

Steph's gonna want to avoid social media for awhile.

After gaining all six Infinity Stones, Seth snapped his fingers to gain his bro's powers, and now the world is perfectly balanced...for himself.
Sometimes, you just need an upgrade.
Steph Curry just Seth Curry with a shoe deal— Dad (@fivefifths) May 5, 2019
So when are Seth's signature shoes hitting the shelves? Soon, right? That's how this works.
Steph Curry. 0 Finals MVPs.— Randy Lee Danger (@randella22) May 6, 2019
Seth Curry. 0 Finals MVP’s.
Advantage: SETH pic.twitter.com/GXlS1jN8oM
Never forget that both Steph and Seth have the same amount of NBA Finals MVPs.
STEPH CURRY DIED ON THE CROSS SO SETH CURRY COULD GLOW IN THE PLAYOFFS— Shea Serrano (@SheaSerrano) May 5, 2019
Steph really is a good brother for this deed.

Hey, being known as Seth Curry's brother isn't a bad thing. Just look at what he's doing in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals.
The other night I saw Seth Curry and Steph Curry peeing into the same fountain and it was struck by lightning.— Ian Karmel (@IanKarmel) May 6, 2019
Wait, so that makes Seth a Warrior and Steph a Trail Blazer, if we're to believe movie logic.
years from now, kids are gonna shoot threes saying "Curry" but they'll be referring to Seth, not Steph— Isaac K. Lee (@IsaacKLee) May 5, 2019
Seth isn't the hero that the youth needs. He's the hero the kids deserve.
