Stephen Curry's a confident guy. He comes across as humble and quiet, but the guy dances, celebrates before shots go in, and has taken on the personality of the Warriors: brash, dominant, and cocky-for-a-reason. He was asked about Super Bowl Weekend and the prospect of playing the Thunder in a highly anticipated matchup Saturday February 6 before Sunday's Super Bowl 50.
The Golden State Warriors star was asked about that weekend, and kind of shockingly, even for the Warriors, he actually went ahead and predicted a win vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder.
So the question then is "What's Steph supposed to say? 'Well, we'll probably lose despite the fact that we've beaten the pants off everyone else in the NBA?'" No, but the common answers on these things include:
"It'll be a great challenge and I'm looking forward to it."
"They're a great team and we'll have to play well and tune out all the distractions if we want to win."
"I look forward to playing a team that's very good."
But then, that's not how the Warriors operate, and honestly, they don't have to operate that way. They are better than everyone else. They should expect to win every single night. They should feel like OKC is just another team they're going to destroy and you can bet, just like with the Cleveland game where Curry's comments supposedly made the Cavaliers mad, they'll back up the talk.
