Former Warriors head coach Mark Jackson would pick James Harden as this year's NBA MVP.
It didn't sit well with Andrew Bogut, who took a shot at Jackson after the Warriors' last-second win over the Suns on Thursday.
The comments appear to undermine Stephen Curry, who played for Jackson for three seasons. But the Golden State guard isn't taking offense.
"It's his opinion obviously," Curry said after practice on Friday. "He's probably been watching the league. People are going to ask what he thinks, especially his ties to the Warriors organization and myself specifically. Suprised me he said that. But it is what it is.
"It was surprising. It didn't really hurt my feelings because it's not like he was actually casting a vote officially, but it was just very surprising.
"Obviously, I wasn't shy about trying to defend him last year when things were rumbling outside of our locker room. But for him to, uh, it's kinda of a different situation, but it is surprising that he didn't. I don't know if he didn't think he was going to be a big homer kind of deal, if he just raves about myself or even Draymond for Defensive Player of the Year, or what have you, or if he wants to detach himself a little bit from the organization. But I mean, just his opinion and we'll roll with it."
