At 24, and after four failed attempts at the highest level, Seth Curry is back at Summer League to earn his place in the NBA. In the New Orleans Pelicans jersey, he emerged as the top scorer of the competition, within an undefeated team. Hard to beat.

“I try to play the best to prove that I can be useful in the NBA. I hope you will give me the opportunity. Every time I put one foot on a wooden floor, I try to have an impact.”

Target accomplished even if the Pelicans had promised him nothing. But it is difficult to come forward with a dad whose name is Dell and an older brother, Stephen, MVP and NBA champion …

A second marker of the D-League, the former Duke’s point guard tries to find his place in the NBA. All that remains is for him to find his niche. Perhaps it will be in New Orleans behind Jrue Holiday, Norris Cole and Eric Gordon.

“I never really had the opportunity to show what I’m capable of at this level. I played well in the summer D-League, but once in the NBA, I didn’t get the chance to be much on the ground.”

“I feel like I’ve played well enough and I feel like I’m an NBA player,” said Curry, who played a total of 21 minutes in four games during brief stints with the Memphis Grizzlies, Cleveland Cavaliers and Phoenix Suns the past two seasons.

“It’s a little frustrating to not get the opportunity, but the only thing I can do is go out there like I’ve been doing and keep playing well and competing against guys who are already on NBA rosters and trying to outplay them and letting that take care of itself.”

This point guard reminds us of Eddie House or Hersey Hawkins, now playing with bigger and more athletic guys, he found a believer in Darren Erman, who knew him from the Warriors and who coaches him today.

“Obviously, he’s a great shooter,” said Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry, an assistant for the Warriors last season. “He’s got good pedigree, good DNA in that area. He’s capable of making a shot, but I think you’ve got to do a few more things, and I think he’s showing everybody out here in the summer league that he can do other things other than just score the basketball.

Here is what his brother had to say about him:

“Just seeing you, how you’ve grown and following your career, it’s not easy having an older brother that’s playing in the NBA and obviously a dad that’s done it before both of us,” Stephen Curry said. “And the way that you’re handling it is impressive. The sky’s the limit for you. Keep doing what you’re doing and keep making the family proud.”
