Curry, to the Doncic Mavs: "They did a bad business in the summer"

After Philadelphia's victory over Dallas, Seth Curry spoke out about his departure from Texas and pointed it out as a franchise error.


Seth Curry is in exceptional shape. He averages the most points of his career (13) and equals his best assist record (2.7). All this, with shooting percentages available to only a select few. In shots of two he is 49.6% correct, from the triple in 46.8% and, from the free throw line, 93.8%. Its aim is of such magnitude that, as of mid-February, it was at 50% -50% -100%, something that has never been achieved in history. His great ability from the perimeter has fitted like a glove (the same one they are after) in Philadelphia, a franchise that, with Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid as main swords, dominated the inside game but was lame from long distance. His arrival, along with that of other shooters such as Danny Green, has propelled the team led by Doc Rivers to the first position of the East, where he ties in victories (22) with the Nets of the big-three.

In Philadeplhia, the campaign is being so satisfactory that its general manager, Daryl Morey, has come to assure that, at the end of the season, everything that is not winning the championship will be a failure. "We definitely have a chance to win and we will continue to work hard for it. We have a very good opportunity," he declared earlier in the month. Morey, who came to the franchise this same season, was in charge of reforming a team that, in many moments, found itself on the verge of a total rebuilding. Seth Curry was one of the pieces he decided to incorporate. In the trade, he sent Josh Richardson and a future round of the Draft to the Mavericks. An operation that, at the moment, does not seem to be giving bad performance.

After Philadelphia's victory over Dallas (111-97), the youngest of the Curries spoke about everything that happened in the past market. After signing 15 points, 3 assists and 3 rebounds, he stuck out his chest and sent a clear message to his former team: "I have nothing personal against Rick (Carlise) or anyone from Dallas, I respect them a lot and I had a good time there, but It seems clear to me that they were wrong when deciding to transfer me. It was a bad move at a commercial and sports level. It is something that happens constantly, "he told the media. With his arrival in Pennsylvania, with a contract that still has three years left and $ 24.4 million to be received, Seth closed his second stint with the Mavs. In the first, also one year old, he achieved records very similar to the current ones; But, in the same way, he ended up packing his bags to land in Portland.

The truth is that, by now, in Dallas they miss him. Despite the fact that Richardson, everything is said, is in similar records to his: 12.9 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists, although with worse percentages. From the line of three, the most notable difference stands at 30.1% (the worst in his career). It is still too early to draw conclusions. Without going any further, before this defeat, Luka Doncic's team had only added one more in the last seven games. After an awful start to the season, Donnie Nelson's franchise seems to be on the mend, already in play-in positions, but offensive fluidity, for now, is not the same. Last season, the franchise was not only the best attack in the league, but also the most dangerous in history. This year, on the other hand, it ranks twelfth in offensive rating. And there, Curry has a lot to do with it.
