The following are three Curry plays from last night’s Hawks-Warriors game:
For the record, I’m not calling for Curry to be punched in the face. I’m just shocked it hasn’t happened yet.
I love watching the Warriors. Not only are they winners but they’re natural assholes. It’s not a force like when LeBron went to Miami and claimed to accept “the villain” role. The Spurs aren’t assholes, but they’re authentic to themselves. The Warriors are as authentic as it gets. They’re better than you and they know it. There’s no shame in that and it’s great entertainment on top of the parade of threes they hit every single game.
Curry is essentially the rich kid with all the toys. Comes from an NBA family, had all the advantages growing up, but has been able to settle into this “against-all-odds” storyline because he went to Davidson and people feel like being the seventh overall pick is some massive slight. In reality, Curry should be treated like JJ Redick was at Duke. A guy so great yet so annoying that you want to punch him in the face.
Recently Steve Kerr remarked that, “(Golden State) has a very likable group of guys – other than Draymond.” Draymond for sure has the most bravado off the court, he certainly yells the loudest and he flexes more than anyone else on the team. It’s easy to assign him as the most hatable Warrior, but it’s wrong. Curry, with his seemingly perfect life and playground demeanor as he fires half-court threes with his mouthguard hanging by his chin hair, is by far the most hatable Warrior. But he’s
Curry, with his seemingly perfect life and playground demeanor as he fires half-court threes with his mouthguard hanging by his chin hair, is by far the most hatable Warrior. But he’s hateable in a Game of Thrones/Breaking Bad sense where you cheer for the biggest and baddest asshole because of how great they are at being just that while lighting the world on fire with dragons or meth lab explosions.
The vast majority of fights I’ve gotten into in my life came on basketball courts for doing much less than Curry does routinely, which is why I'm shocked it hasn’t happened organically yet. Then again, when you have Andrew Bogut and Green at your back, you can pretty much get away with anything.
What a F'n asshole he is! I've never seen such a prima Donna step on the court ever! He puts towel on his head like he's Jesus! And oh by the way, he sucks as a team mate and all for his own glory! Dickhead!
The only reason he hasn't been clotheslined (research Raja Bell) is because of the new NBA rules, Steph is one of my favorite players to watch, but in the old NBA the goons would've came for him a few times.. he still would be going crazy, but he would have a few YouTube videos in the cue because of the old guard style
