10. Seth Curry

Curry is on his third stint with the Mavericks. He went undrafted in 2013 and struggled to find his footing in the NBA. The 6’2 guard got an opportunity with the Kings where he showed enough to earn a contract from the Mavs. Curry finally broke out in Dallas and quickly became a fan favorite as he averaged 12.8 points, 2.7 assists, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.1 steals in 29.0 minutes per game during the 2016-17 season.

He missed the entire 2017-18 season with a stress injury and left Dallas after just 70 games played. Curry helped the Blazers reach the conference finals in 2019 before returning to the Mavericks and helping them get back to the playoffs.

Seth Curry is one of the league’s best shooters. His career 43.5 percent from 3-point range ranks as the sixth-best in NBA history. He is an absolute bucket from behind the arc but never gets mentioned among the game’s elite marksmen.

Curry became a fan favorite because of his underdog story and elite shooting. He has bounced around the league and never got the love he deserves. The 6’2 guard keeps returning to the Dallas Mavericks in free agency because he feels the support from MFFLs. Injuries have played a factor, but Seth Curry can finally get his due by helping the Mavs make another deep postseason run.
