BOSTON (CBS) – Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is easy to like.
He’s got an infectious smile, can shoot the lights out and plays the game the right way. Not to mention he wasn’t highly recruited out of high school, went to a small college and keeps proving people wrong at every turn.READ MORE: Chicago-Area Family Still In Shock After They Hired Home Improvement Contractor Via HomeAdvisor, Only For The Contractor To Smash Up Their Property
But this NBA darling is starting to make enemies — not on the court, but in the press room.
As much as Curry has been a star this postseason, it’s his daughter Riley that is really stealing the show.
“I have no problem with kids at press conferences. They just won. This is problematic if you just got your ass kicked — that would be inappropriate,” 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Scott Zolak said on Thursday. “But the mood is light, they won, and I have no problem if you bring your kid to a press conference. I think it’s kind of cool. It’s kind of cool.”
“It’s kind of funny. It’s cute. Who cares, right? Postgame press conference have become one of the most useless activities in all of sports. Useless,” added midday co-host Marc Bertrand. “He’s answering softball questions for the most part. They’re not going to hammer him in there.”READ MORE: 3 Horses Wandering On Route 1 In Topsfield Safely Returned Home
Well apparently Steph Curry and his daughter have drawn the ire of Brian Windhorst, Skip Bayless and others for a perceived lack of professionalism.
Marc Bertrand takes issue with that.
“Brian [Windhorst] and all your newspaper types: get over yourselves. You’re not that important. Our business, as much as we love working in sports media and love talking about sports all the time, guess what? At the end of the day we’re not all that important. None of us are,” said Beetle.
“None of us are important. Skip Bayless is not important. Brian Windhorst is not important. This really gets the newspaper people upset. Nobody gives a damn about your deadlines.”
