    Or he knew there might be consideration for a suspension so he had to apologize for PR reasons.

    I don't know. They could still win without Curry, they have enough talent to do so. The question really is, can they win without Curry and Igoudala?

    the absence of bogut is more significant to gsw than many think.

    i think bogut and his importance to that team is way underrated, unlike barnes who's overrated.

    I actually thought this article in the SF Chronicle (of all places) was on point.

    No Bogut, Iggy hobbled, and Draymond largely a defensive no show = loss.

    Curry shouldn't and won't be suspended. Get over it.

    Anyway I'm looking forward to watching the 2nd half of this game tonight. Few things are as pleasing as watching the Warriors get beat.

    Come on man, the hate is getting unreal. Suspended for throwing a mouth piece? I dislike the Warrior love by the media and how basically nothing they do is criticized whereas the Rockets and Harden would get roasted, but Curry just let his emotions get to him. Nothing more, nothing less. That foul was also ridiculous for a 6th foul, Lebron acting a bit. That being said, Lebron has shown now that he is still the best player in the league and I would love for him to clinch this thing because nobody else deserves it more in these finals. Also I can't handle another year of Warrior love, 3-peat talk, GOAT etc.

    This, while Bogut doesn't get more than 20 something minutes a game, he sets the tone at the beginning as the rim protector, screener, and overall enforcer which wears down and makes the opponent wary for the rest of the game. But Iggy is a special long talent,, But ultimately GSW are trying to deflect and hide their other secret weapons with all this underdog propaganda. There's still a guy by the name of Draymond Green that will show up big time in game 7 with his antics if necessary. He will slow down Lebron at all costs now. Think about that. Even if he gets suspended it will only be games in the upcoming season... And that's what the Warriors know. Watch for a fight to break out between Lebron and Draymond. It's coming...

    and i didnt know the 6th foul should be whistled any differently (even though in reality they very well can be).

    $25k isn't enough for both Curry and Kerr. Curry threw a tantrum and targeted a courtside fan with windup on the throw. Should be at least $50k.

    Kerr called out the officiating and encouraged Curry's poor behavior. Should be at least $75k.
