    The refs were keeping the Dubs in the game through 3 quarters.

    Oh snap, is that true about Haslem throwing his mouth piece and it happening to hit a ref and getting a game for it in the post season?

    I know hitting a ref is different and I'd have to see a replay to see if he threw it at him intentionally but that's kinda funny lol.

    i'd say hitting a fan is even more egrigious than hitting a ref

    You can't blame the refs for a 31-11 first quarter...

    Yeah, but it was a foul....I mean, he fouled him like 3 times before he ever touched the ball.

    Kerr did acknowledge the refs didn't cost them the game.

    Maybe. But LeBron wouldn't. Kyrie wouldn't.

    The NBA's first priority should be putting the best product on the floor for the fans.

    Curry winning MVP was a joke.

    As much as we are throwing hypotheticals around regarding the thrown mouthpiece, I don't want curry to be suspended.

    Sure it would be satisfying to see the brat get what is coming to him . And see that entitled smirk wiped off his face ... Ok I changed my mind . Jk

    It is just against the spirit of competition. It adds a proverbial asterisk if Cleveland wins . It's just now what 99.9 percent of NBA fans truly want to see . I agree that if this is done during the regular season or even earlier in the playoffs you have full reason to suspend the guy . But it's going to be game 7 . Literally one game take all . And you shouldn't let the typical response dictate your action in this extraordinary circumstance.

    I guarantee you that every member of the cavs wants to beat the Warriors at full strength. Especially if currys action is relatively benign . I'm part of the hate , I despite the little gremlin and his entitled squad . I wanna see them get demolished with curry on the floor . Sure there's a chance that doesn't happen . There's a chance the Warriors win even if curry is suspended .

    Most of all , I don't wanna hear a 3 month long media diatribe about the suspension as opposed to maybe minimal discourse that a suspension should have been levied

    Steve Kerr on Steph: "He had every right to be upset. He's the MVP of the league. He gets 6 fouls on him, three were absolutely ridiculous."

    He isolated a ref about 3 fouls...Kerr will get fined.

    It's easy to not like the Warriors when they're throwing mouthpieces at fans... He could have hit that dude in the Eye!!!! I'm surprised Green didn't immediately punch the fan in the crotch for being in the way though.
