It was his first time playing with LeBron James, and he was also the one who possessed all of the smooth motions.
And let’s not forget about his dunk! Yes, Curry did not win the MVP award or make the game-winning shot.
But he was the center of attention from the outset. He won the 3-point challenge, too, with three of his four attempts coming from six feet behind the 3-point line.
Curry also reacted fast to his teammate’s missed dunk by passing the ball to set up a slam by Nikola Jokic. He’d put up a horrible defense in total.

In addition, the lovely couple has a lovely daughter named Carter Lynn, who was born in May 2018.
The couple married right before Callie Rivers’ 30th birthday, which made the celebration even more special.

Right then, Callie was adorned in a lace mermaid gown with a bustier-styled bodice. In the meantime, Seth was flaunting in a blush suit jacket.
As the nuptials’ location was overlooking the Pacific Ocean, they also had tons of white flower arrangements all the way from the aisle.
Simultaneously, the aisle was mirrored, and their flower girls were nieces Riley and Ryan Curry. After the vows, they had a ballroom with chic black chandeliers and plenty of twinkle lights.
Indeed, the whole wedding sparked elegant yet subtle looks. Overall, Mindy Weiss was the wedding planner who featured rentals from Revelry Event Designers.
