“It’s pretty special,” Curry said after the game, via ESPN. “Knowing what my dad in his career for 16 years and him passing the torch to me. And I’m going to try to talk to the rules committee and see if we can get Seth Curry’s numbers in there, too. Strength in numbers right there. See if we can catch Kobe and his dad.”
