OAKLAND – If you mess with Stephen Curry or his family, or anybody else on Draymond Green's team, you do so at your own risk.
A Seahawks "fan" apparently took his chances on Saturday in Seattle, where the Currys and Green were in attendance to watch the Panthers-Seahawks Divisional Playoff Game at Century Link Field.
"That was a fun little scene, I guess you'd call it," is the way Curry, a Panthers fan, described it after the Warriors on Monday practice.
"It was right after the pick-six, when they kind of opened up the game, there was this one fan that kind of lost his mind for a second. And we defended ourselves. And Draymond, the only ammo he has was, I think it was grapes . . . so he's Draymond on and off the court."
Green is one of the scrappier players in the NBA, or any other sport. He's fearless and he's devoted to any cause in which he believes. He considered himself a member of Team Curry on Saturday night.
Green on Sunday admitted, via Twitter, to throwing grapes at the boisterous fan. No harm was done, or so it appears, but incident generated considerable chatter on social media.
Curry implied that the fan crossed the line with his taunts and got personal.
"My mom is . . . she kept her composure for the most part because what the fan was doing was ridiculous and unacceptable," Curry said. "How it all unfolded was really unnecessary.
"But nobody is going to just let somebody disrespect them. We're not going to get into a fight or anything like that but they had to say what they had to say and move on."
Other than that, Curry said, he enjoyed the one-day break from basketball to absorb the atmosphere of an NFL playoff game.
