To be honest, it's somewhat impressive. In all the wrong ways, of course, as 'what-about-ism' has become an exhausting epidemic throughout society as much as it has sports analysis. That said, Steph Curry deflecting from his own blatantly obvious infraction by calling out someone who is more fluid in getting away with it, despite the latter not even being present, is perhaps the most cowardly act of finger pointing I have ever come across.
I say the following while finding James Harden's overly dramatic and oft-illegal antics to be a huge drain on the NBA's product. Steph Curry has no room to talk, for if a previous opponent were to follow his lead they might set a moving screen that lasts longer than most Uber rides then mockingly lift their jersey to reveal a Warriors' t-shirt after inevitably being called for an offensive foul.
James Harden doesn't just straddle the line as it pertains to traveling; He hop, skips, and jumps over it more shamelessly than those that are still publicly stepping in the name of R. Kelly's love. That said, he's far from the only elite NBA player that had been waved on by the roadblock of the rulebook by referees. For Steph Curry to act like he's never scored a single bucket that wasn't enabled by intentionally absent-minded officiating isn't just laughable. It's also a pretty obvious and salty response to James Harden compromising not a single guideline of the duel when putting a bullet between the eyes of the Golden State Warriors no more than four days ago.
So while I appreciate the pettiness of professional athletes, I can't endorse such an elementary reliance on it. Steph Curry basically got caught playing ball in the house and blamed the neighbor who most recently beat him in it for giving him the idea. Somehow, that's even more childish than cocking back four full steps in loading up your jump shot.
