Stephen Curry sarcastically apologizes for Golden State’s success
Stephen Curry joined teammate Draymond Green in firing back at critics of the Golden State Warriors, and did so by sarcastically apologizing for all the team’s success.
“I just want to say, I apologize for us being healthy,” quipped Curry. “I apologize for us playing who’s in front of us. I apologize for all the accolades we’ve received as a team and individually. I’m very, truly sorry. We’ll rectify that situation this year.
“We try to have fun with it.”
At least Curry avoided offending any segment of the population by not likening critics to “bitter females,” as Green did.
The MVP point guard most likely is referring to comments made by Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, who suggested the Warriors were the benefactors of a bit of luck in winning an NBA championship, although he did back down from his original comments by clarifying he believed the Warriors nevertheless earned the title.
The fact that Curry also cited accolades he’s received individually arguably is another salvo fired back at Houston Rockets superstar James Harden, who argued recently that he deserved the MVP award last season, not Curry.
Curry previously responded to Harden’s comments by taking a dig at his rival, saying, “It doesn’t change what happened last year.” He also appeared perturbed earlier this offseason by the fact the Warriors weren’t installed at one point as favorites to win the title again following the upcoming season.
Suffice to say, the Warriors are brimming with confidence heading into the 2015-16 NBA season — winning a title will do that — and some of the team’s more vocal players aren’t afraid to go full frontal in an effort to silence any naysayers.
