The Sixers star reveals what’s missing from his trophy cabinet.

In his first 14 games this season, Seth Curry has been putting up career-high numbers.

With Ben Simmons out of the lineup and Joel Embiid ensnared in COVID-19 protocols, the Philadelphia 76ers shooting guard will have to pick up the slack.

Curry isn’t bothered by this at all.

In fact, he’s delighted at the chance to shoulder the burden.

Instead of serving solely as a catch-and-shoot option, he worked hard this offseason to create shots for himself off the dribble.

He’s now averaging 15.4 points per game on 52 percent shooting from the field (46.5 percent from three).

Those figures, however, are meaningless to the gifted 31-year-old.

Curry told HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto that he didn’t have any “individual goals for statistics” heading into the season, but he does have one trophy he wants in his trophy case.

We did, however, leave it on the floor… Review.

Take a break.

Come back to life.

Back to work!

In order to keep up with his MVP sibling, the younger Curry brother admitted that he wanted to compete in the three-point contest.

Stephen Curry has won the championship twice, including a thrilling walk-off win in Atlanta last year.

“You mentioned a three-point contest.

Curry told Scotto, “I feel like I have to put one of those on the mantel to be a part of the (Curry) family.”

“I’m hoping to get one of those before the end of my career.”

Two of them already belong to Steph (Curry).

If I get an invite, I’m going to as many as I can so I can add another trophy to my collection.”

This season, only 76ers guard Seth Curry (@sdotcurry) is shooting 504090.

He discussed his breakout season with @hoopshype, his desire to compete in the NBA 3-Point Contest, his long-term future with the Sixers, Ben Simmons, and more. https:t.coYzpGmDuXfU

Curry Speaks Out About Simmons’s Absence

The never-ending saga between Simmons and the 76ers has come to a head.

After being kicked out of practice on October 19, the disgruntled star claimed that he wasn’t “mentally ready” to play basketball and left the team indefinitely.

Since Simmons refused to meet with a team-appointed therapist, the Sixers have resumed fining him for missed games.

That tale continues to elude us…
