Trail Blazers guard Seth Curry’s performance in Saturday’s three-point might not have gone according to plan, but it didn’t take away from a weekend that was filled with family time. Curry returned to Charlotte alongside his parents and his brother, Stephen, to enjoy a full slate of family-oriented activities.

Seth, who is in the middle of his first season with the Blazers, explained to WRAL Sports Fan’s Steve Reed that this All-Star Weekend was special.

“It’s rare that we all get in the same place at the same time,” said Seth, “but to have my dad recognized by the NBA in a city where he played for the Hornets and where us kids grew up in is pretty special. It’s been one of the best All-Star weekends I have been a part of.”

Dell, who appeared in 701 regular season games with the Hornets, echoed Seth’s gratitude.

“The league did a really nice thing with incorporating us with our kids being here,” said Dell, who moved his family to Charlotte in 1988 and never left. “We are blessed to be a part of this with our sons in the NBA. I can’t explain how happy and proud we are to be able to be on the court with them.”

All-Star Weekend will conclude with Sunday evening’s matchup between Team LeBron and Team Giannis. Seth and the Blazers will return to action on Thursday with a trip to Brooklyn to face the Nets.
