Video of hecklers screaming at Stephen Curry’s parents surfaced on Twitter, creating more social media backlash at a Raptors fanbase that already took a hit for its reaction to Kevin Durant’s injury. The clip posted by The Render on Tuesday afternoon shows Sonya and Dell Curry exiting a van at the entrance of the team hotel to shouts of profanity from a group gathered at the St. Regis in downtown Toronto. Sonya Curry rises from her seat and points toward the crowd, yelling back as she and Dell, a former Raptors player, make their way to the entrance. One man calls out to Dell, saying, “Dell, you’re the best, Dell! Don’t even listen to these guys.”
“We told Minnesota that Steph didn’t want to go there,” said Dell Curry in an interview with The Republic back in 2016. “We had no idea that they had agreed to a trade. Obviously, they couldn’t put that out. I remember (then-Suns general manager) Steve Kerr calling me (the next morning) and saying, ‘Don’t go to the press conference. We have a trade that they reneged on.’ I’m like, ‘That’s between you guys. We’re going wherever they tell us. We can’t not go.’”
The hope in the Curry camp was that he would fall to the New York Knicks at No. 8. As the draft went on, the only team in the way of that happening was the Warriors, whose head coach at the time, Don Nelson, loved the Davidson sharpshooter and wanted to take him at No. 7. As the Warriors’ pick approached, Nelson reached out to Steph’s father, Dell Curry, whose opinion was valued as a 16-year NBA vet, to ask his thoughts about Golden State drafting his son. Dell wasn’t having it. “Don’t,” Dell recalled telling Nelson. “You asked me the question, I’ll tell you the truth. Don’t [draft him].”
