Even though he was LIVID to have been ejected from Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Stephen Curry made sure not to take it out on the fans. After throwing his mouth guard at a member of the crowd, the Warriors’ star made sure to take the time to issue an apology mid-game — watch here.
Stephen Curry’s anger was continuously building up as he was called for foul after foul in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. He officially blew up at the end of the fourth quarter, and when he threw his mouth guard in frustration, it hit a fan sitting in the front row. Watch it all go down and see his apology here!
The 27-year-old was called for his sixth foul with just over four minutes left in the fourth quarter of Game 6, and he clearly didn’t agree with the call. But after launching his mouthpiece toward the crowd, he took a moment to shake hands with the man he accidentally hit, quickly shaking his hand, amid his anger.
“I’ve thrown my mouthpiece before,” he said in a post-game press conference. “I usually aim at the scorer’s table. I was off aim. Definitely didn’t mean to throw it at a fan. That was obviously not where I was trying to take my frustration out.”
After the game, Steph’s wife, Ayesha, defended him against the calls made. “I’ve lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money… Or ratings i’m not sure which,” she tweeted. “I won’t be silent. Just saw it live sry.”
She eventually deleted the tweets, and added, “Tweeted in the heat of the moment because the call was uncalled for. Police racial profiled my father and told him to remove credentials and tried to arrest him. It’s been a long night for me. I apologize. I’m okay that w lost…I just can’t take people coming at my family for absolutely no reason. Something I don’t understand or stand for.”
Steph will likely have to pay a fine because of this incident.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Steph should’ve been ejected from the game?
