When Steph Curry fouled out and got ejected from Game 6 against the Cavaliers, he threw his mouthpiece at a fan in anger, risking a suspension. Now, Steph’s coach, Steve Kerr, has spoken out in defense of Steph, saying the player’s heated actions were justified!
Steph Curry, 28, hurled his mouthguard at a fan during the June 16 game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but his coach Steve Kerr doesn’t think the MVP will be suspended in Game 7. See what he had to say right here.
After the game, the Warriors’ coach defended Steph, saying that the MVP had a right to be angry: “I’m happy he threw his mouthpiece. He should be upset.” Steve told ESPN that the fouls were unwarranted. “Three of the six fouls were incredibly inappropriate calls for anybody, much less the MVP of the league,” he said. “He gets six fouls on him, and three of them were absolutely ridiculous.” Steve also added that he’s not at all worried about Steph being suspended in the next game.
Steph apparently apologized to the fan for throwing his mouthpiece at him (as he should). Take a look:

Steph’s wife, Ayesha, also defended her husband, tweeting that the game was rigged (though she later deleted it): “I’ve lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money… Or ratings in not sure which. I won’t be silent. Just saw it live sry.” She later removed the message, but not before Selena Gomez retweeted it!
Overall, it was a rough game for the Warriors, who were down by double digits for most of the game, ultimately losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers once again.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Steph had a right to be angry during the game, or did he go too far by throwing his mouthguard at a fellow human?
