In addition to being teammates with the Golden State Warriors, brothers-in-law Stephen Curry and Damion Lee also share a love for golf. They play golf in their spare time and in the offseason. Curry is known for being an avid golfer, entering the Ellie Mae Classic in 2017.

Meanwhile, Lee is also a golf fan, and holds an Annual Golf Out of all his groomsmen. The brothers-in-law watched the PGA Championship when they missed the NBA's bubble in 2020 and the US Open this offseason. They also recently attended a Lee Elder tribute tournament. Curry and Elder teamed up earlier this year to inspire more black golfers.

On the court, Stephen Curry and Damion Lee are playing great basketball for the Golden State Warriors. In their most recent game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Lee had 20 points off the bench to help the Warriors to a 106-98 win. Curry had nothing but praise for his brother-in-law's performance on the court.

“He’s consistent. He knows our system, and he’s got so much better since he left Santa Cruz. He’s healthy, available and confident. It’s huge for us to have a spark plug like that off the bench,” Curry said.

Expectations in the 2023-24 NBA season

Damion Lee has cemented himself to be a solid roleplayer in his six seasons in the NBA. He helped the Golden State Warriors win their 4th NBA championship back in the 2021-22 season. Before the start of the 2022-23 NBA season, Damion Lee agreed to a 1-year deal with the Phoenix Suns where he averaged 8.2 points, 1.3 assists, and 3.0 rebounds on 44.2% shooting over 74 games.

With the Phoenix Suns offering Lee a 2-year deal entering into the 2023-24 NBA season, it clearly shows that he fits their team perfectly. There are a lot of expectations with the Suns after their recent acquisition of Bradley Beal, and they hope to win it all this season.
