Even after his phenomenal senior season with Duke, Seth Curry went undrafted in Thursday nights NBA draft. For many players, this would be the end of their NBA dream. Some would look for overseas options. Others may give up their dream of professional basketball entirely. Seth Curry will not be one of those people. Seth Curry was not drafted, but I can guarantee that is not the end of his NBA dream.
Shortly after the NBA Draft ended, Seth Curry tweeted out, “I will be good! The journey doesn’t stop and the goal remains the same. Back to work in the AM..” He has not given up his goal and will continue to fight for an NBA job. The NBA is desperate for shooters and floor spacers. Seth does that job as well as anyone in basketball. He will be able to help an NBA team, he just needs to get the opportunity.
His path to the NBA is not an easy one. Due to his offseason surgery, Seth will be unable to attract potential teams in the NBA summer league. This is another potential setback for a player who has not been given anything on the basketball court. He can still land a job on an NBA team by joining a team through training camp. It will not be easy to make the team in that manner.
This fight to raise in the basketball ranks is not new to Seth. Coming out of high school, he had little recognition by top division one programs. This lead to his commitment to Liberty. After just one season at Liberty, he had impressed Coach K and many others that he was deserving of playing top level collegiate basketball. He was able to rise through Duke’s program and became a captain and over 17 points per game scorer in his senior year.
Seth Curry has never gotten the easy track in basketball and that now includes the NBA. That will not discourage Seth. Seth Curry will work even harder to make sure every NBA team regrets not drafting him Thursday night. He may not have been drafted last night, but I guarantee that Seth Curry will make an impact for an NBA team during his basketball career.
