Stephen said Saturday before practice for the All-Star Game that “the stakes are pretty high considering how many people show up for our games.”
Whoever loses must buy tickets for the entire Curry family anytime they play against each other for the remainder of their NBA careers.
Stephen, who won the 3-point competition in 2015, said he is motivated to win it again because he “knows for a fact” that everybody else in the Curry family — including his parents — are pulling for Seth.

“So I hope to pull the upset,” Stephen said with a laugh.
Steph, signed a five-year, $200 million contract in 2017.
Seth is playing on the final year of a one-year, $2.7 million contract.
Considering his underdog status, Seth has his family’s support over Stephen.
“I know for a fact that everybody in my family, except for me, is rooting for Seth,” Stephen said. “I’ve already accepted that. I hope to pull the upset tonight.”
Steph should pay for it anyways.
Even if he does win.
