Do the Warriors celebrate too much? Is it disrespectful? Do you hate it or love it?
On a recent appearance on Colin Cowherd, Dell Curry explained why he doesn’t think his son, Steph, is disrespecting his opponents with his more vocal and expressive style these days.
“And you talk about the flash and the talk, the excited emotion that he shows. He doesn’t try to show up his opponent at all. It’s all about his fans celebrating, enjoying the game. And I think it’s a big part of it. You’ve got to have fun. When you shoot the ball and it goes in, and it’s a big play? Celebrate. Let them know that you’re happy that you made that shot.”
I get what he’s saying and agree, but I can see how opponents would take exception to some of the bench and post-shot activity, especially because of the popularity and success of the Steph and the Warriors. A lot of those critics didn’t care when it was Kent Bazemore “enjoying the game.”
