Stephen Curry says he deserved ejection for ‘stupid’ decision
Stephen Curry could be facing a suspension after he was ejected from Saturday night’s game for throwing his mouthpiece at an official, and the two-time NBA MVP is not trying to justify his actions.
Following the Golden State Warriors’ 111-101 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, Curry admitted that he deserved to be thrown out for the way he acted.

“That last play I thought I got fouled,” Curry said. “My frustration boiled over. I did something stupid. I deserved to get kicked out and that’s what happened. I’ll obviously learn from it and try not to do it again.”
Curry felt he was fouled while driving to the basket in the final minute of the game. He reacted by spiking his mouthpiece in the direction of the official, for which he earned an immediate ejection.

Curry says he will learn from his mistake, but you might remember that he earned the first ejection of his career for a similar act.
