View Full Version : Should Steph be suspended

Everyone who saw the play can probably agree the call was a week one. (Almost as bad as Keven loves 3rd foul phantom call). So I don't mind him reacting and getting a T. He was done anyway. But throwing the mouth guard may have been to far. As it did hit a fan.

Thoughts????

Also. I'm just trying to spark a debate. Not get Steph suspended. It would be the worst thing to happen to the playoffs since the sun's incident

This quote from Kerr here says everything about the NBA:
"Let me be clear: We did not lose because of the officiating. They totally outplayed us, and Cleveland deserved to win. But those three of the six fouls were incredibly inappropriate calls for anybody, much less the MVP of the league." Entitled little sh*ts. So for any other player it would bad, but not as bad because Curry is the MVP. WHAAAATTTT? But the answer to the OP - No, he should not be suspended. I don't want to see another sham championship, like the one GS won last year.

hahaha i saw that and thought, "wow, this guy really believes his team should be getting preferential treatment and is offended that they aren't." like those are the fouls you call on love but you definitely don't call them on curry lmao.

but in the regular season he should get fined for it but no suspension. I remember melo getting $15k for throwing the ball into the stands and i think they're along the same lines

well he watched Jordan and Duncan get preferential treatment, maybe he is used to it haha

Yes, it came off as very entitled. If that is his thought process, then guess what.....they have LeBron James. Curry isn't of his stature yet, if he ever will be. So by your though process, James will get more calls, not your boy

These are the only circumstances in which Steph would have been suspended:

1. If the mouth piece hit a fan's eyeball and cost them their eyesight.
2. If mouth piece hit David Stern's/Adam Silver's wife.
3. If mouth piece hit Cav's owner/wife.
4. If mouth piece hit Michael Jordan.
5. If mouth piece hit Barrack Obama/Michelle Obama.

Outside of those 5 extremely unlikely outcomes, he gets a fine and plays in Game 7.

My thought is no, he owned it and apologized to the fan right away. To the people saying no because its game 7, I'll say this, its either a suspendable offense or its not. Officer that person was homeless so it doesn't matter that they got murdered....my point is the act is the act and whatever you believe the punishment should be should not be contingent upon game 7.

I actually see it the other way...especially the last foul when Steph got fouled out. That was not a foul and Lebron got preferential treatment and Lebron is the biggest ****boy ***** in the league.

I can't believe some are comparing it to Amir Johnson or Haslem who "purposely" threw their mouthpiece at a ref...Curry threw his out of frustration and mistakenly hit a fan after realizing what he did Curry went over and apologized (as he should have). Nothing more than a fine IMO, even if this was a regular season game he doesn't deserve a suspension...Austin Rivers threw a couch cushion at a fan (by mistake) and didn't get suspended

The difference is Amir and Haslem purposely threw theirs at a ref.

Curry throws his mouthpiece to the scoreboard ALL THE TIME. This time he missed and immediately apologized.

How do you think LeBron was officiated those first 3-4 games? :laugh: That was the most I think I've honestly ever seen a defense be allowed to hack, slap, push and foul him in the paint ever before.

They called this last game MUCH tighter, on both ends. LOTS of players were in foul trouble. Difference is, Curry is the one guy who kept putting himself in position after position to have a foul called on him. He was being dumb. Foul or not, why the hell are you making that play 75 feet from the rim with 5 fouls? It's just poor decision making.


Curry probably doesn't get as many calls as LeBron because Curry doesn't operate in the paint nearly as much as LeBron does. Simple explanation there.

No doubt, but I've seen numerous times throughout the season, not even in the playoffs, where he gets hacked on jumpers or driving, gets put to the floor, and nothing is called and the ref is standing right there.

It's just frustrating to see how Kobe, LeBron, and Jordan were treated by the refs in the past and Curry doesn't get the same treatment.

I think he gets good treatment, he just operates away from the rim more than those guys ever did. Jordan was literally allowed to karate chop the defenders arm though haha. LeBron gets hammered, but he is so damn strong it doesn't phase him. Definition of a foul is, "create an advantage through physical contact". So if it doesn't stop LeBron, it didn't create an advantage.

There's a difference between should he be suspended or would he be suspended.

He should be suspended because he throw something that hit a fan.

But he isn't going to be suspended because this is game 7, and if they suspend him I will be the first one protesting.

I know the rules should be the same for everyone and every scenario (they are not) but I want the best players out there.

So. Conclusion;

That's definitely worthy of a suspension. Just not the right time to suspend him.

It's funny, because I feel that Curry gets the whistle wayyyy more than LeBron does. Their FtR are close (Curry at .25 and Bron at .29) for the playoffs, yet 57.9% of Bron's points come in the paint and 21.1% of Curry's points come in the paint.

Curry is nearly matching LeBron's free throw rate despite his scoring in the paint is 33% of LeBron's.

Curry juuuuust happens to fall down after nearly every shot attempt and the refs are tired of him trying to draw fouls.

If any of your opinions were unbiased it would be a different story, but you are a straight-up homer, plain and simple. And by the way, the calling this series and the whole playoffs in general has been favoring the home team game in and game out(the biggest reason why GS is still here), so don't worry the refs will win game 7. But like other posters have mentioned, Lebron, Kobe and Jordan operated down low all the time and that's why they got the call, Curry likes to shoot long threes in transition, so he just doesn't get fouled that much(I mean at least 50% of his shots are 3 pointers, and the same thing goes for the whole Warrior team).

Trust me, it's true. Curry falls after about half of his shots and slides backwards on the floor, and it's easy to see why. Curries favorite shot is a fade away jumper landing on only the back foot, so the tiniest bit of contact sends him tumbling backwards. Go watch some highlights of his 3pt jumpers, even if he doesn't fall, he stumbles backwards after most of his 3pt shots off the dribble.

It's called being skinny and small and getting the benefit of every call. Even when Curry is wrapping a defender it's usually a guy bigger than him so it looks like nothing. And I hate the reffing for that.

Small people are way favored and get away with a lot more. (This is coming from a somewhat small guy LOL)

Should he be strictly speaking...YES. Will he be, no. And I'm ok with that because that's how this sort of thing works. His action of throwing the mouth guard into the crowd was idiotic at best and something I'd never even think of doing as someone who's played many sports myself. People need to be responsible for their actions whether it's a millionaire athlete or not. I was not brought up to do stuff like that at all, my dad would of killed me for being that dumb, but I hope he won't for the sake of a possibly epic game 7 and would be really surprised if the league did in fact do it. But it was still a ridiculously irresponsible and rash action regardless, that is a fact.

It accidentally hit a fan. There was no intent to hit him. It shouldn't even be a suspension in the regular season. It's ridiculous that people think anyone should be suspended for that.

He's thrown his mouth piece at least 10 times. The first time he hits a fan it's thread worthy? How many times has a player thrown a towel, cup, etc while being ejected and it's never even brought up. Kendrick Perkins hit me with a half a cup of water when I at a Celtics game and I laughed my *** off lol

Yeah, I think it was just last year Blake Griffin threw a cup of water on a Warriors fan and no one called for him to be suspended.

This is hilarious. No he should not. Are we going to suspend Lebron for throwing the ball into the stands after an errant pass makes him step out? No. Both little hissy fits but not suspendable. People are such ******* now days.

Neither should be acceptable. I never seen LeBron do that but if he did that's not cool. Its just a mouth piece but these players gotta have respect for the league and the fans.

Lebron seemed to ask for a Steph suspension with the gesture he made.

Anyhow, I'm about ready for the refs to call a level (or non ridiculous) game 7. Then we can ALL stop pretending that Lebron's Cavs belong in the ring with GSW.

I mean the Cavs have proven to me they couldve beat Houston in round 1 of the West. That's about it. That's as much credit as I can give them right now. Most stupid manipulative officiating I've seen in the NBA since Lakers-Detriot Finals 2004. And details about the TV coverage make it pretty obviously transparent that, as they say, "everybody knows."

Anyhow its kind of oathetic for the NBA. And I am not that impressed by "the King." They wouldve been better off playing it straight. *wheeeeeee* Lebron finally makes a few jumpers not he is in the top 3. Uh, ok.

Steve Kerr was ABSOLUTELY right about what he said.

This, if Lebron did that then Yes him too. I don't recall that however. It's not about people being ******* as the Pfeifer says, it's about having some self restrain and not just doing whatever comes into your head to do in the moment. Fans should not be getting hit with a piece of a players equipment under any such circumstance. You cant just get frustrated and use it as an excuse to act out and be reckless. Completely unacceptable indeed.

Now like I said in an earlier post, I didn't expect him to be suspended and he probably shouldn't be given the league's guidelines and disciplinary history, especially on this stage and with this player. But it doesn't change the fact that what he did was completely unnecessary and basically a mini temper tantrum and such behavior shouldn't be tolerated. Players and especially Star's are role models to many kids all around the world and ambassadors of the sport. Not a good look, at least not in my old school type of thinking.

Everyone who saw the play can probably agree the call was a week one. (Almost as bad as Keven loves 3rd foul phantom call). So I don't mind him reacting and getting a T. He was done anyway. But throwing the mouth guard may have been to far. As it did hit a fan.

Thoughts????

Also. I'm just trying to spark a debate. Not get Steph suspended. It would be the worst thing to happen to the playoffs since the sun's incident

Well, Green's suspension proved very fruitful, getting the Cavs back in the series by preventing the Warriors from clinching five games, which will allow Bogut's absence to be felt in Games 6 and 7, but maybe they should suspend Curry... just to be sure.

Right because Cleveland sports have a long history of the refs helping them win ships. ohh wait...

I feel bad for the true Warrior fans in here. If there are any. They are over shadowed by this clown and the loser on the other page. Just troll baiters.

I just want an exciting clean game. From the refs call the clear fouls other then that let them play and stay consistent. Or call everything whatever just be consistent.

Hell yes. These teams are evenly matched IMO. No need for refs to put their fingerprints on it. As for the Lebron tantrum I will try and find video. It was an end bound pass right hand of TV screen, Lebron gets pulled out of bounds by the pass right in front of the scorers table. Gets mad, throws the ball across the court into the crowd and stared down his own player. I have no horse in this race, just hate seeing hissy fits from guys that are supposed to be grown men.

Ask Barkley about be an old school role model :) not their job to be a role model. I grew up idolizing Scott Stevens so throwing a mouth guard is nothing but a little mitch having a tantrum.
