Stephen Curry Confronts a Denver Nuggets Fan (VIDEO)

Things got testy after Game 5.

Things got very heated between Denver and Golden State in Game 5. So much so, that Stephen Curry had not-so-pleasant words with a Nuggets fan on his way back to the locker room once the final buzzer sounded.

    you should never throw your finger in someone’s face, its a threat, idk what the fan said maybe he threatned Curry, but Curry threatened that guy

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    Good for Steph. I agree with Chuck. These fans who feel emboldened by the fact that they think players can’t get to them need to know they can’t just say whatever they want to say. Who knows what that dude said but he looks like a punk and a coward by throwing up his hands like he didn’t say anything once Steph came at him. It’s all fun and games until someone gets approached.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    Depending on what dude said, Steph had every right to do whatever he wanted outside of getting physical with dude. There would have been no confrontation had dude kept his mouth shut and not said anything. Nothing wrong with Steph threatening him if he was threatened first.

  • pposse

    its never okay to threaten someone. The fan won, he got a reaction from Steph Curry, no one will know what he said unless a sound/camera picked it up.

    If you point your finger at someone at that proximity you should be prepared to throw down.

    There is something wrong with Steph Curry going after the fan, this can very easily be determined a suspension by Stern.

    I hate when people say something wild then raise their hands like they don’t understand what just happened.

  • http://twitter.com/apowellAdvocate Allen Powell II

    He didn’t go after a fan. He exchanged words with a fan. He didn’t touch him, he pointed at him. You’re reaching.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    If he said anything that warranted the finger in his face, he should have been prepared for a confrontation himself. There’s only something wrong with dude who said something to start the whole thing. Steph’s reaction was one of a normal man who may have heard something offensive about himself or his family. He’s always level-headed. So for him to react that way, it had to be something wild that was said. These are just normal guys like everyone else.

  • pposse

    i know they are normal guys, but they get paid abnormal money to live an abnormal lifestyle.

  • pposse

    he got in pretty close proximity and pointed his finger directly at him and then did it again. did someone ever pt their finger at you, someone you didn’t know?

    It was also a stretch when Stern suspended Amare for putting half a foot on the basketball court when Nash got thrown into the scorers table, but look what happened.

  • Jacob Nelson

    He could have just pointed at him and said “You’re an idiot.” Saying that pointing at someone is a threat is a really broad statement. It just shows who you’re talking to.

  • LLC#12

    Klay Thompson saw the whole thing and just walked away. The way the NBA is with fines/suspensions now, IMO you’ve got to be smart and just get your team-mate out of there.

  • pposse

    okay how about you go around wherever you are and point at someone at talk to them. Do that to 10 different people. Make sure you point your finger the same way Steph did to the guy in the stands and then report back and tell me how everyone you pointed at reacted to you. If you have to analyze the video for facial expressions or whatever, just do it the same exact way he did and tell me what happens.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    Money doesn’t change the fact that they are normal and will defend themselves whenever it’s needed. Money doesn’t make them soft and non-confrontational.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    If I said something stupid or offensive to someone and they pointed their finger at my face, I’d be a complete moron to get upset or surprised at them for doing it. As if I didn’t say anything to provoke them.

  • RayJr

    It looks like Steph just tells the guy “Shut your mouth dawg”. But anyways everyone calm down. This is no big deal. Steph just lost a game and he was pissed and the fan said something to make him snap. No punches thrown. No harm no foul.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    A better experiment would be to talk junk to 10 grown men and see how many end up pointing their fingers in your face or worse. Because that’s actually what happened.

  • pposse

    “or worse” like i said pointing a finger in your face is a threat period, your proving my point. you bundled pointing a finger ‘or worse’ as the two options, both are threats imo. You can conduct the experiment any way you want, but you can’t tell me after talking smack and someone point their finger in your face that you dont feel threatened.

  • http://twitter.com/_DFrance DFrance

    What is your point man? You’re stuck on Stephen pointing at the dude and completely ignoring whatever disrespectful filth came out of his mouth to provoke the reaction.

  • http://twitter.com/_DFrance DFrance

    Talk smack, act surprised and innocent when you get a reaction, go back to the tough guy act once Stephen walks away. Classic p*ssy behavior.

  • pposse

    he wouldn’t have been soft from walking away either. Part of being in the spotlight for these guys is for them NOT to be confrontational with fans. Look i get it, the fan probably said something really offensive, but i guarantee you that Steph Curry regrets what he did right now, because he unlike you or me understands fully that the public is watching him, he’s a role model etc.

  • pposse

    if u said something stupid or offensive i think you would be a moron if you were ‘surprised’ by a reaction. I wouldn’t think your a moron to get ‘upset’ by it tho cause the fact remains the guy point his finger at you.

  • ets

    Dude Howard threatened Lee and nothing happened to him. I bet you didn’t care about that huh? Get real. Curry is human too.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    i hate when people watching expect these players to let everything go…..

  • pposse

    how much you want bet? I’m a betting man, u name the stakes.

    How about you go and look up that article on slam and see what i posted bout it. Go ahead.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    who cares if it’s viewed as a threat. even tho pointing is not a threat, it’s aggressive and an attempt at intimidation. But it, in itself is not a threat.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    He’s a man first.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk
  • KevinJohnsonFan

    The threat comes after the words that are said. Steph didn’t point his finger for no reason. You’re forgetting the part where the guy said something to provoke him. That started everything. The point is you can’t say whatever you want and get offended when someone points their finger at your face. If you don’t want fingers pointed at you, don’t say anything to deserve it. Problem solved.

  • pposse

    well the commissioner should care if its viewed as a threat. What would happen to MWP if he did that?

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    ….After I provoked him with the words I said. You’re leaving the most important part of this out.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    nothing. pointing your finger is not a threat.

  • pposse

    LOL u should have taken the bet, “ill take care of it later” doesn’t sound threatening to me tho

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    right. threatening to take care of something is not a threat. but pointing your finger is. that’s genius.

  • pposse

    no standing behind a podium with your victim no where near eye sight is not threatening NBK, when you point at the person u want to f**k up and he is right in front of you, then yeah its threatening. DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

  • pposse

    you dont even know what he said! all yall love backing the players on every little thing. These guys need to act professional at all times, when they don’t slam likes to put these articles up! So does yahoo, why is that? Is it cause a fan wished death upon a Steph Curry’s parents? NO! Its cause Steph Curry pointed his finger at some dudes face. A lot of you guys are acting like females about this, he knows he shouldn’t have done that, and yall should too.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    oh, that’s cute. you think threats are location based… that’s not stupid.

  • pposse

    no nbk your cute, stay cute okay

  • pposse

    No KevinJohnsonFan, that is your point, not mine. For the record i agree with you, the guy shouldn’t have said anything, and he probably deserved the treatment he got from Steph.

    My point however, is that no matter what these fans say don’t acknowledge them in any way that draws negative light on yourself or your team.

  • pposse

    well we will never know until MWP does it, but i find it hard to believe.

    In any previous run ins i ever had with the law or people in general, the minute they pt their finger at me, i have let them all know right away to get their finger out of my face. U know what, they ALL complied too. Just ask google if pointing your finger is assault, there are a myriad of articles about it.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    well yes, depending on context pointing your finger can be viewed as assault. as it is a failed battery. but that doesn’t mean pointing your finger at someone who provoked you is classified as a threat/assault always. especially in an arena.

  • initbruv

    The kid was like 14. Steph Curry was playing the adult/teacher. Teachers/adults pointed in my face and yelled at me all the time, doesn’t mean they were threatening me.

  • initbruv

    You’re getting too worked up about this man. He just lectured the dude for a minute and it was over. Everything is fine.

  • pposse

    lol your right ill stop. It was kind of funny tho the way the fan reacted. It reminded me of Smokey from Friday

    “I got mind control over Steph. He be like “shut the f**k up (points finger at the fan/smokey). I be quiet. But when he leave, I be talking again (gestures the whole team to get to the locker room)

  • initbruv

    Lol exactly.

  • http://twitter.com/_DFrance DFrance

    I’m sure he told Steph, good game. Do you know what Steph said? If he pointed and said “you’re a great fan” is it still a threat?

    Yes, they should aim to be professionals at all times, but I’m not gonna be mad if they slip up every now and then.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    lmao

  • bike

    I understand why people think NBA players shouldn’t have to put up with stupid fan behavior, but they really should ignore it. That confrontation looked pretty heated and one of Curry’s teammates ushered him away. Suppose that idiot took a swing at Curry, then Curry retaliated? What do you think would happen?

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    You being on the side of the coward who acted like he didn’t know what the deal was when Steph approached him says a lot about you. So if anyone’s “acting like a female”, it would be you. What shouldn’t have happened is the comment from dude that precipitated Steph’s reaction.

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    No. That whole “ignore them regardless of what they say” stuff is easy for someone sitting at home watching. Much different to actually be in that situation and have someone say something out of order to you especially after you just lost a playoff game. The negative light only comes from people like you who have an issue with these guys standing up for themselves. The act on its own isn’t negative at all. Neither Steph nor the team looked bad. What was negative was the comment that made Steph go at him. Nothing negative about what Steph did at all.

  • Max

    Take this!

  • pposse

    okay i’m aligning myself with the fan in the crowd. He is i and i am him, cause u say so.

  • LakeShow

    I wish we still lived in the wild west…
    Okay maybe not, but it would be nice just to see Curry smack him with no repercussions what so ever.

  • Markus437

    Anyone ever watch the nba voice over guy on youtube?? He’s gonna have a good one with this clip lol

  • LakeShow

    Hahahahaaaaa… Thad be great:
    “You know what?!! Your awesome!!”

  • spit hot fiyah

    itisreal85

  • ATL dynamite

    And put that wild fan in Chris Bosh’s voice LOL
    *Throwing up hands* “I didn’t say I want to see your poopoo”

  • pposse

    i told my computer monitor to stop pointing at me, when it didnt i slapped the monitor away. It took me a while to get it back up and running!

  • Bruce Wayne

    If you were playing somewhere, and somebody started yelling out insults about you and your family, or maybe made a joke about a health problem somebody in your family might have, would you be able to ignore it?

  • jmm

    If you’re dumb enough to provoke someone a foot taller than you, who lifts weights for a living when you’re within both earshot and arms reach you should be prepared to deal with some consequences. It’s a shame the way the NBA emotionally and physically castrates these men and prevents them from reacting like human beings.

  • Max

    Lol, you probably felt threatened huh?

  • http://twitter.com/apowellAdvocate Allen Powell II

    That was a clear rule violation. Stern could have cut him some slack but he wasn’t obligated. There were no rules violated here.

  • Markus437

    lol ya the Chris Bosh ones are classics

  • http://twitter.com/apowellAdvocate Allen Powell II

    I think that’s where we differ. I’m not like a guy who thinks he can go to a game and say crazy stuff to another man’s face because he bought a ticket. I grew up in a time when people fought and got killed over words. It wasn’t right, but it was reality. So, I understand that your words have power and the old “Sticks and Stones” adage is crap. I teach my kids to walk away, but I also tell them that if they are talking smart the other guy might not walk away.

  • bike

    If the repercussions of getting into an altercation far outweigh any satisfaction I might get out of belting someone, I think so. I didn’t say it was fair or easy. The problem with a player getting into any level of altercation with a fan is that it can escalate fast. There are a lot of knuckleheads out there and they can be unpredictable. If it gets to the point where a player strikes a fan, the player is screwed.

  • pposse

    i was being sarcastic in the comment i made to KJFan. I dont know what the fan said, but I’m not going to just take Curry’s word for it either. In all likelihood the fan did say something completely unneccesary.

    I’m all for playfull banter tho. As long as the ‘diss’ is in good taste, ill say something, but i’m smart enough to know what a low blow is and won’t go there.

  • Bruce Wayne

    True, the player is definitely screwed in that instance. Things can escalate quickly, but I don’t think there is anything wrong with speaking back to a person that crosses the line. That’s definitely different than pulling an Artest and running into the stands..

  • AiRsMiTh

    He was probably high.

  • AiRsMiTh

    I love it, lol… I kid. I don’t like that fan either, but it was pretty funny watching the confrontation, especially when Steph got in his face, with 2 seven footers in Andris and Andrew, and Draymond all backing him up.
    Go Warriors! Can’t let Denver hit you in the mouth again like they did.

  • Curryissoft

    A player gets in my face, and I will end his career. Period.

  • http://www.facebook.com/starkpwnsyou Joshua Maria Peter Bautista

    But, he’s a torch! A human torch!

    That fan really had balls. This incident just solidified Stephen Curry’s rise to superstardom.
