Stephen Curry now talked about this altercation on his appearance on the Bill Simmons Podcast earlier this week. He told Simmons that the trash talk he got from LeBron James was all fake. LeBron wanted to make sure his teammates knew he’s a mentor.


“I was hot because I was trying to finish out a possession, I think it was less than a minute left. I didn’t see him coming over from the weak side so I tried to do a little soft scoop layup and he pinned it. Then he stared me down and he said something to me.

“I was like, That’s what we really on right now? We’re about to win and you’re really worried about mean-blocking my shot and talking trash?

“Then the whole Tristan and Draymond thing happened, and I went back up to him and I was like, Yo, what’s up? Is this really what we about right now?

“He was like, ‘I gotta do that to make sure my teammates know I’m a mentor.’ That’s part of his leadership and that type of deal. I was like, I don’t want to be the sacrificial lamb for your leadership. Come on man, that’s messed up. [Laughs]”
