Warriors star Stephen Curry reacts to Kevin Durant’s criticism of rude fans
On Sunday after the Nets took down the Boston Celtics in Game 4, Durant addressed the incident in which a Beantown fan threw a water bottle at Kyrie Irving while he was heading to the locker room. KD did not hold back in a rather passionate statement, as he spoke about what other athletes are probably feeling about the recent incidents of unruly behavior by fans.
“Fans got to grow up at some point. I know that being in the house for a year and a half with the pandemic got a lot of people on edge, got a lot of people stressed out, but when you come to these games, you have to realize these men are human. We are not animals, we are not in the circus. You coming to the game is not all about you as a fan,” Durant said in part, per Malika Andrews of ESPN.
After seeing Kevin Durant’s statement, Stephen Curry made sure to let his ex-Warriors teammate that he is heard. Steph retweeted the full transcript of Durant’s statement and simply tagged him on Twitter.

Indeed, no words needed from the Warriors star. Durant said it clearly, and Steph knows what he should do: Spread the word.
Hopefully, incidents like what happened to Kyrie Irving will be avoided. While trash-talking and taunts are normal and part of the playoff atmosphere, getting physical or other dangerous acts have no room in the sport.
