How Damion Lee and Stephen Curry Became Brothers-in-Law and Teammates

The NBA is full of fascinating stories and connections, but few are as intriguing as the one between Damion Lee and Stephen Curry. The two players are not only teammates on the Golden State Warriors, but also brothers-in-law. How did this happen? Let’s take a look at their off-court relationship and how it affects their on-court performance.

The Beginning of a Love Story

Damion Lee and Sydel Curry, Stephen Curry’s younger sister, met in 2013 at a college basketball game. Sydel was a volleyball player at Elon University, while Lee was a basketball player at Drexel University. Both schools were part of the Colonial Athletic Association conference of the NCAA.

According to Essence, the couple made eye contact as Lee was walking up the stairs and Sydel was sitting in the stands. They exchanged DMs and went on several dates, eventually becoming inseparable. They officially started dating in 2016 and got engaged in 2017.

Sydel said that she was surprised by Lee’s proposal, as she thought it would take him forever to ask her to marry him. She also said that she was impressed by his persistence and determination to pursue his NBA dream, despite facing many challenges and setbacks.

The Wedding of the Century

Damion Lee and Sydel Curry tied the knot on September 1, 2018, in a lavish ceremony in Charlotte, North Carolina. The wedding was attended by many NBA stars, including Stephen Curry and his wife Ayesha, Seth Curry and his wife Callie Rivers, Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson.

Stephen and Seth served as groomsmen for Lee, while Ayesha was Sydel’s matron of honor. Stephen’s daughters, Riley and Ryan, were flower girls. The wedding was a celebration of love, family, and basketball.

The Bond Between Brothers-in-Law

Damion Lee and Stephen Curry have more than just family ties. They also share a passion for basketball and golf. They have been teammates on the Golden State Warriors since the 2018-19 season, when Lee signed a two-way contract with the team. Lee has since earned a regular spot on the roster, proving himself as a reliable shooter and defender.

The brothers-in-law have also supported each other through injuries and hardships. Lee suffered a torn ACL in his rookie season with the Atlanta Hawks in 2016-17, while Curry missed most of the 2019-20 season with a broken hand. They have both bounced back from their setbacks and are playing at a high level this season.

Lee and Curry also enjoy playing golf together in their spare time. They have attended several PGA Tour events, such as the US Open and the PGA Championship. They also participated in a tribute tournament for Lee Elder, the first black golfer to play in the Masters Tournament.
