Cleveland Cavaliers players and fans found sheer offense in his “champagne” remarks. Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry on Monday clarified that he didn’t mean any disrespect to the Cavs’ camp.

“Obviously, walking in that locker room, it’ll be good memories. Hopefully, it still smells a little bit like champagne,” Curry had said after Sunday’s practice session.

Some Cavs’ players thought the comments were disrespectful. According to a report on Cleveland.com, Curry’s remarks angered some of the Cavs’ players.

Luke Walton, Warriors’ interim coach, also defended Stephen Curry, citing that the comments didn’t mean disrespect to the opponents’ camp.

“Why would it?” Walton pointed out. “It’s an honest statement. It’s one of the greatest moments we’ve had in our lives, especially for those guys that put in all the work and spent their whole life trying to get there. They shouldn’t be shy or ashamed of how much they enjoyed winning.”

And enter LeBron James. He walked off the media conference asking why nobody asked him about Curry’s comments. He also revealed he had an answer to it.

LeBron’s answer remains unknown.
