Stephen Curry: If I apologized like Charles Barkley did to Draymond Green, my mom would’ve slapped me

Charles Barkley said he wanted to punch Draymond Green. The Warriors forward dared Barkley to do it. Barkley apologized but made sure to add that he meant what he said.

Stephen Curry, via Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle:

“When I was growing up, and I said something where I was in the wrong, my mom wanted me to apologize. If I said, ‘I’m sorry, but I still meant it,’ I would’ve gotten slapped in the face. … When it comes to people with microphones, you can’t take that stuff too seriously.”

Say whatever else you want about them, the Warriors unite quickly when attacked by TNT.
