Steph Curry: “People In The Bay Area Now Know I Love My Panthers”
Former Davidson Wildcat and current Golden State Warrior, Steph Curry, joined the Mac Attack today to talk about his love for the Carolina Panthers as they took down the San Francisco 49ers last weekend.
Mac begins the interview asking Steph if he got any flack from the 49er fans for showing up to the game with his Panthers gear.
On wearing Panthers gear in San Francisco: Maybe some people didn’t know where I’m from, or how much I love my Panthers, but I didn’t care. I was going to cheer for them no matter what and it was a huge win, so it was nice to be able to see it in person.
On the season as a Panthers fans: I love it. I’ve watched every game and I’ve been keeping up. For them to have weathered the tough start and to really be two possessions away from being 8-1 is a great feeling. I’m hyped to see them doing well and I wish I could be home on Monday because it’s going to be crazy.
On going to the Panthers locker room: They were fired up.It was pretty free spirited in there. Everyone had big smiles, including Coach Rivera.
On winning in the playoffs v. winning in the NCAA tournament: It’s different, because when you play the same team in a series it gets physical and demanding and its tough to win four games. The sense of accomplishment winning the Denver series was awesome. In the NCAA tournament, its a different team every night. Winning is always fun, but there is something about grinding against one team that feels different. It’s comparable, but playing at the highest level is awesome.
Steph also talks with Mac about raised expectations for the Warriors, talking Davidson/Duke trash with his brother, Seth’s time in the D-League, and his thoughts on Jabari Parker.
