Stephen Curry’s family has been a focus throughout his career, but things look different with the Warriors back in the Finals for the first time in three years.
His parents, once a staple of the NBA Finals broadcast during crowd shots, no longer are sitting side-by-side.
“Obviously they were very compelling,’’ said Jimmy Moore, who retired last year as ESPN’s director of the NBA Finals after 15 years of overseeing the broadcasts. “Steph Curry and his family were compelling TV. There’s so much news out there right now that’s negative and bad. To have something positive like that to connect to, it just felt good and that’s what I like about it.
