Steph Curry had to issue a correction to a media outlet after they got a quote of his wrong regarding the way he handled the Golden State Warriors’ NBA Finals loss to the Toronto Raptors.
Curry’s Warriors lost in Game 6 of the NBA Finals at home at Oracle Arena. Even though his season had ended in disappointment, he didn’t sulk afterwards. Instead, he and his team of people (e.g. family, agents) gathered at his house. Complex Sports shared a quote about that from an interview they did with Curry and got it confused, saying the Warriors as a team celebrated at Curry’s house.
Steph went on Twitter to set the record straight that it was his personal team, not the Warriors, who celebrated with him.
Not correct!!! I said "my team" as in my family and my friends that were with me at the game.

It really wouldn’t make much sense for the Warriors as a team to be celebrating the loss together. But it does make sense that Curry individually chose to take a big-picture view and celebrate all the Warriors have achieved.
The story actually had been told before by Ramona Shelburne, along with a few additional details. She said Curry and his family ate In-N-Out Burger and played video golf throughout the night. That makes it sound much more like a splurge after something doesn’t go your way, like a comforting sympathy pint of ice cream.
