Seth Curry discusses career year in YouTube interview with Linus Tech Tips
Over the past few years, Seth Curry found a new passion in playing video games. Curry recently sat down with Linus Tech Tips, to build his own PC and talk about life, the past season with the 76ers, and more.
Linus Sebastian, the owner of Linus Tech Tips, had a ton of questions for Seth Curry while building Curry’s brand new loaded PC. Sebastian asked him about his 36 point playoff game vs Atlanta, and Seth Curry said what we had all knew for months.
“I had a career year. I had a great series, personally. I wish we could have won” – Seth Curry
Curry wasn’t lying about his career year. Seth finished the season averaging 12.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 2.4 assists. He shot a line of 46.7% from the field, 45% from three, and 89.6% from the line. His percentages from three and the free-throw line were also career highs.
Linus Sebastian also asked Seth about how it is working with Sixers head coach Doc Rivers, his father-in-law.
“I thought it would be hard, but it’s usually harder on my wife. After a bad loss, the next day coming for dinner, it can be a little awkward.”
Everyone remembers when their parents or somebody related to them coached their kids’ teams in AA ball or youth sports. But for it to happen in the NBA, to play for your father-in-law, must be a pretty crazy feeling. The wins are great, but the losses are not so much.
Seth Curry had one of the most efficient seasons from the free throw line in Sixers history last season. Here’s what he had to say about shooting free throws in general, and how he finds his success.
“The bad free throw shooters have a different routine when they catch the ball on how many dribbles they take before they shoot, spinning the ball, doing a different thing every time. They don’t have a rhythm. Good free-throw shooters, you see them take the exact same amount of time when they catch to when they shoot. It’s repetition.”
Seth Curry was one of the biggest keys to a successful regular season for the Sixers. Shooting his career-best percentages, he’ll look to continue his dominance behind the arc and at the line in this season.
