Sparks Rookie Cameron Brink Discusses Growing up with Godbrother Steph Curry

The WNBA’s No. 2 2024 overall pick, Los Angeles Sparks rookie Cameron Brink, and Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry are two of the most prominent figures in basketball today, but their connection goes back to childhood. Their mothers, Sonya Curry and Michelle Bain-Brink, were college roommates at Virginia Tech, while their fathers, Dell Curry and Greg Brink, played together on the Hokies’ basketball team.

This profound family bond is underscored by the fact that the Currys are Brink’s godparents and the Brinks are Steph’s godparents, highlighting a unique and enduring relationship between these basketball dynasties.

It’s clear that Brink really enjoyed her time with Steph as a kid and still values their friendship today as much as ever. Brink sat with Paul George to discuss all things hoops, but the connection between her family and the Curry family was one of the highlights.

“He’s kind of like a theater kid,” Brink said to Paul George about Curry during her recent appearance on Podcast P with Paul George. “He’s just always acting a fool and being silly… You always see him smiling… He’s joking, like life’s just a joy when you’re around him.”
