On Saturday evening, brothers Steph and Seth Curry competed against each other in the NBA 3-Point Contest for the first time in their careers. Although Steph had participated in this event a few times before, this was his little brother Seth's first appearance. 

While brotherly bragging rights are always on the line any time these two compete, this competition carried a little more weight due to a sizeable wager the two made beforehand. 


The Curry brothers agreed that whichever one of them made it further in the shootout would have to pay for the entire family's tickets every time they faced off against one another for the remainder of their careers. And given the size of the Curry family, which includes at least three generations now, this could turn out to be a pretty significant amount. 


Exactly how much you ask? It's an estimated $45,000 a year.

That is a huge chunk of change no matter who you are. Although, it's definitely going to hurt Seth a little more than it would have Steph. 


Seth currently makes $2,795,000 this year with the Portland Trail Blazers, while Steph hauls in $37,457,154 for his services this season with the Golden State Warriors. That's going to be tough on Seth's pockets for the remainder of his career.
