With just minutes to go in Game 6 of the NBA Finals and his team down, Stephen Curry did something unusual: He lost his cool.
Frustrated by his sixth personal foul, which led to the first ejection of his career -- regular season included -- the two-time MVP tossed his mouthpiece into the stands, hitting a fan sitting court-side.
The move didn't injure anyone, but that small fact didn't stop fans from starting to worry (on Twitter, of course) if the NBA would feel compelled to suspend Curry during the Warriors' do-or-die Game 7 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Should Curry be fined? The conspiracy theorists Some fans brought up the Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem, who was suspended in the 2006 playoffs for throwing his mouthpiece.
But here's one thing to keep in mind: Haslem didn't throw his mouthpiece at a fan. He threw it at a ref. Looks slightly different doesn't it?
Yes, it does.
Curry probably isn't getting suspended. He's going to be fined. But you better believe that will only fan the flames of the conspiracy theorists followers who believe the league is out to hurt whoever they hate.
