Sure, it's probably both weird and challenging to face off against your brother in the Conference Finals.
But what's even more challenging is being the parents of those brothers, who have to try and make a decision on which team to root for without playing favourites!
Stephen and Seth Curry took the floor for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals as the first set of brothers to ever face off at this stage in the playoffs and their parents, former NBA player Dell Curry and his wife Sonya, couldn't make an outright decision on who to cheer for so they let fate decide in the most fair way possible - a coin flip.
Dell and Sonya Curry really did flip a coin to decide who'd wear Steph's jersey and who'd wear Seth's jersey at Game 1 😆- SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) May 14, 2019

Mrs. Curry won the rock-paper-scissors battle to let the coin decide which team she rooted for and it came up as Seth's Portland Trail Blazers, leaving Mr. Curry with Steph's Golden State Warriors.
They elected to go with split jerseys, but still repped the son that fate decided on the front side.
During the game, things went better for Steph than it did Seth.
Steph put together arguably his best performance of this postseason - he scored 36 points to go with seven assists and six rebounds while knocking down a playoff career-high-tying nine 3-pointers.
Seth had just three points in 20 minutes of play, going 1-for-4 from beyond the arc.
Steph's Warriors earned the win, but throughout the game he had a few moments of realization against his younger brother.
"Every single time, it's weird," Steph told ESPN's Doris Burke in his post-game interview.
"Obviously growing up playing in the backyard, watching our dad play on the same courts, and now we're both representing our family in the league. But to do it on this stage is even crazier considering the journeys we've both had.
"We're going to enjoy this series no matter how it turns out. But I'm sure for my parents and our family, wherever they are, they're proud of both of us for sure."
And he was right about their parents being proud, they were celebrating equally for both sides throughout the entire game and Steph took notice.
"I caught myself a couple times looking up in the stands and my parents, they can't help themselves, so any time either one of us did something good they both were clapping so they gotta fix themselves," the older brother joked around in his post-game press conference.
"I told my mom, 'who you with?'" Steph continued. "When I made a shot I saw her stand up and cheer but saw all Portland gear and it's just weird... It's probably more nerve-racking for them just trying to get settled into this series."
They have a minimum of three more games against each other, but it's unlikely this situation becomes more normalized for Steph, Seth or their parents.
Regardless, we're in the presence of something special in seeing two brothers face off in the Conference Finals.
