Myers says Steph's 'T' celebration was 'pretty good'

Warriors

Sometimes professional athletes -- just like everyone else -- let their emotions get the best of them. 

That was the case Sunday night when Warriors star Steph Curry received a technical foul against the Los Angeles Clippers, then proceeded to drain three consecutive 3-pointers and celebrate by throwing up a "T" with his hands

Everybody seemed to have a good laugh over it, including Warriors general manager Bob Myers. 

"He T’ed himself up," Myers said on 95.7 The Game's "The Morning Roast" on Tuesday. "That was a little out of Steph's character. I started laughing, that was pretty good."

If you're going to direct a celebration at a call a referee made, it's always reassuring to have the support of your own GM. 

Myers knew that it was an out-of-character moment from Steph, someone who he normally views as the calm leader of the team. 

"Yeah, I didn't mind it," Myers added. "He's such an amazing leader, and in the season of 82 games, it's kind of like how [former San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey] was. You gotta have some kind of calmness to it too because it's so long. But we balance that out with Draymond [Green] who's anything but calm. Maybe you have both kinds of leaders and it works well with our team."

Curry's celebrations, as unique as they are, are almost never directed at somebody. Steph's "T" celebration was a rare slip that seemingly everyone enjoyed.
