C.J. McCollum calls out old timers for their mouthguard opinions
Apparently, the way some of the NBA’s current players, most famously Stephen Curry, use their mouthguards as toys does not go over well with the old guard.
Portland guard C.J. McCollum brought that to light on Sunday when he called out said old guard for their thoughts.
McCollum himself found out through this tweet, which he retweeted.
Just learned that the way guys hold their mouth pieces irks old hoops fans. The more you know. ???

McCollum saw this and had some words for those who feel that way.
Some of them old heads would catch this modern day fade ? https://t.co/gzKVBKdEcF

Of course, Curry is a central figure in this “controversy,” and he and the Warriors are also a lightning rod for criticism from some older NBA legends. Perhaps it’s all part of that.
