Steph Curry's Parents Cursed at by Raptors Fans outside Toronto Hotel
Steph Curry’s parents, Dell and Sonya, recently came under attack by unruly Toronto Raptors’ fans who waited outside the couple’s hotel to yell profanities, and their son had just the perfect response.
The Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors, where Steph plays, have been going head-to-head in the NBA Finals, and it seems fans of the Canadian team have taken things way too far.
Ahead of Game 5 on Monday, some angry fans chose to spend their time cursing at and heckling Steph’s parents outside their hotel.
There was the Game 3 media storm that erupted featuring Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Nicole Curran
In a clip posted by The Jasmine Brand, Sonya and Dell are seen alighting from a vehicle outside the building where they’re met with mostly inaudible yelling and several F-bombs.
Sonya didn’t look like she was going to take the insults lying down and yelled back at the crowd while walking into the hotel. The Warriors eventually won Game 5 106-105 to force Game 6 set to hold on Thursday at the Oracle Arena.
Reacting to his parents getting heckled by fans of the Toronto Raptors, Steph told reporters “it's kind of stupid, to be honest.”
“I think in terms of being in the Finals five years in a row and being on the stage, it’s hard to avoid those interactions with fans that wanna kind of impose or make their imprint on the series somehow, someway, especially social media these days. I think it’s kind of stupid to be honest, in terms of people camping outside our hotel just to yell expletives at either us or our family members or whatever the case is, but we handle all that stuff with class and try to ignore it the best we can.”
“If they get something out of it, so be it, but it doesn’t affect us at all,” the six-time All-Star added.
So far, the NBA Finals have been quite eventful, with most of the drama happening off-court.
First, there was the Raptors fan who made a lewd comment about Steph’s wife, Ayesha, following their team’s Game 2 loss. Then, there was the Game 3 media storm that erupted featuring Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Nicole Curran, the wife of Golden State Warriors’ billionaire owner, Joe Lacob.
Hopefully, Game 6 will come with less controversy, and the Raptors’ fans can learn to rein in their emotions.
