In the wake of a controversial video that went viral over the weekend, depicting a figure resembling Seth Curry indulging in substance use, the internet was abuzz with speculation about the athlete's future with the Dallas Mavericks.

The clip, which was disseminated by a parody account, suggested that Curry was seen consuming "Lean" and using marijuana, prompting false reports of his release from the Mavericks roster. However, these claims are unsubstantiated, as the person in question was not Curry, and the account in question is known for its satirical content.

Seth Curry, a seasoned NBA guard, has not let the rumor mill disrupt his focus. He is currently under a two-year contract with the Mavericks, signed last summer, valued at $8 million. Curry's return to the Mavericks marks his third engagement with the team since his initial signing in 2016.

With a career that commenced in the NBA in 2013, Curry is steadfast in his ambition to contribute to the Mavericks' pursuit of championship glory, a feat the franchise last achieved in 2011.

Curry Praises Teammates

Curry has been vocal about his enthusiasm for the team's dynamic, especially playing alongside stars like Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.

In a conversation with reporters, he emphasized the offensive strengths of his teammates, highlighting their unselfish play that frequently creates scoring opportunities for others. His role, as he reiterated from an interview with Sports Illustrated in October, is to capitalize on those moments by delivering his renowned shooting skills to maintain the team's competitive edge.

Despite a challenging start with an average of 2.0 points per game in his first seven games this season, Curry remains a vital asset to the Mavericks, who have had a stellar start. The Mavericks' performance has been impressive, securing a top spot in the Western Conference and sharing an 8-2 record with the Denver Nuggets, the reigning champions.

Following a triumphant win against the New Orleans Pelicans (136-124), the team is eager to continue their winning ways in the upcoming NBA In-Season Tournament, aiming to solidify their standing and momentum with a victory in their forthcoming rematch against the Pelicans.

As the Mavericks strive to extend their winning streak, Curry's resolve seems unshaken by the off-court noise, with his sights firmly set on the prize — reinforcing his team's position as a formidable contender in the league.
