Steph Curry predicts where the 76ers will finish in the playoffs
The 76ers have an NBA superstar on their side for the remainder of the postseason. Recently Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry spoke with Ann Killion of the San Francisco Chronicle and discussed the ongoing playoffs. Curry was eliminated during the play-in tournament and finished as a finalist for MVP. When predicting the outcome of the 2021 season, here is what Curry had to say.
“I’m a pseudo-Sixer fan now,” Stephen said, predicting a Philadelphia-Utah Finals, with Philadelphia winning and Seth Curry named Finals MVP.”
Steph is the older brother of Seth and has always been in his corner during his career. Curry has been on a tear this postseason, currently averaging 18 points per game against the Hawks. Steph Curry so far has been the only non-Sixer to be rooting for the team during their title pursuit. Currently, the 76ers hold a 2-1 series lead over the Atlanta Hawks, hoping to extend their lead tonight at 7:30.
76ers GM Daryl Morey and the franchise were fined $75,000 last week for tampering following Daryl tweeting Steph’s post of Seth Curry and telling him to “join them.” Steph Curry is currently set to be a free agent following the conclusion of next season at 34-years-old.
Hopefully, Steph’s prediction turns out accurate. On the other side of the league, the Utah Jazz hold a 2-1 series lead over the Los Angeles Clippers, with the Phoenix Suns advancing to the Conference Finals. With Brooklyn possibly being without Kyrie Irving long-term, the Eastern Conference could be more wide open than initially thought.
