Steve Kerr On Curry: “I’m Happy He Threw His Mouthpiece. He Should Be Upset”
In he waning minutes of the 4th quarter of Game 6, Golden State Warriors PG Stephen Curry received his 6th foul and proceeded to throw his mouthpiece, hitting a fan, and he got an ejection to complete his night.
Coach Steve Kerr after the game applauded Curry throwing his mouthpiece during the press conference:
“I’m happy he threw his mouthpiece. He should be upset,” Kerr said. “It’s the Finals, and everybody is competing out there. There’s fouls on every play, it’s a physical game.”“If they’re going to let Cleveland grab and hold these guys constantly on their cuts, (and) then you’re going to call these ticky-tack fouls on the MVP of the league to foul them out, I don’t agree with that,” Kerr said.“He’s the MVP of the league,” he said again. “He gets six fouls called on him, three of them were absolutely ridiculous. He steals the ball from Kyrie (Irving) clean at one point. LeBron (James) flops on the last one. Jason Phillips falls for that, for a flop. As the MVP of the league, we’re talking about these touch fouls in the NBA Finals.”
