The Curry family became the standard model of what an NBA family should look like. However, the basketball world was shocked as Dell and Sonya decided to file for divorce after three decades of marriage. Steph Curry, arguably the most popular among the Curry siblings, shares the struggles he had to endure amid his parents' divorce.

'Y'all effed this up'

Divorce is never easy for any family, especially for children, no matter how old they are. The Golden State Warriors star admits the news hit him hard but couldn't blame his parents for doing it.

"It's challenging for sure. I could be mad and be like, 'Y'all effed this up.' I could have that approach. But it's going to be an acknowledgment of both of y'all in terms of how y'all raised me. The calmness I have in myself is because of y'all." via The Ringer

The Curry family tree is one of the most popular and thriving in the league. Father Dell was a known shooter and a good role player in his playing days. Steph and Seth Curry are two of the best shooters in the league right now, with the former making his stake as the best shooter the NBA has ever seen. Meanwhile, Seth is married to Doc Rivers' daughter, and Sydel Curry, the only daughter of Dell and Sonya, is married to Steph's GSW teammate Damion Lee.

Now that he has his own family, Steph Curry will surely learn the lessons here and apply them in real life. People expect physical and verbal abuse as common denominators when a couple decides to file for divorce, but in many cases, the couples simply grow apart. In Dell and Sonya's case, allegations of infidelity have come up as one of the reasons for the divorce.

Allegations of infidelity

The two sides accused each other of cheating. Dell claims Sonya committed "acts of illicit sexual misconduct while Sonya points out Dell's marital misconduct as a reason for filing for divorce. Dell refuses to give Sonya alimony because his ex-wife lives with her new partner in Tennessee. Meanwhile, Sonya cleared that she began dating after being legally separated from her ex-husband, per The List. Things could get messy, and the divorce could open a can of worms. But in any divorce, it's always the kids who are suffering the most.

It's heartbreaking to see Dell Curry and Sonya seated on opposite sides of the arena watching Stephen Curry make history. Every child wonders why it has come to this, and it takes a lot of patience, love, and maturity to see things from a different perspective. Dell and Sonya may have fallen out of love, but the memories they gave and the calmness they taught to Steph and his siblings will be the significant factor in moving towards healing and accepting the reality that sometimes good things must come to an end.
