The Golden State Warriors point guard spoke during the team's media day on Sunday about the decision by Phoenix's governor to sell the franchise following a one-year suspension for improper workplace conduct.
STEPHEN CURRY: I think the outcome was exactly what should have happened. I think-- [? I ?] [? had ?] conversations with Adam Silver directly and kind of got his point of view of what decisions and I guess mechanisms he had to intervene, and bring down a punishment that was worthy of the actions that we're all responding to, and representing the league as a whole, and protecting the integrity of the league, and the standard that we set in terms of-- from execs, ownership, all the way down to players. There should be a standard around what's tolerable and what's not.
And so again, the outcome was exactly what it should have been. Honestly, I thought with the punishment that was handed down, it would have probably dragged out a little longer. But I'm glad that we got to the point where hopefully, the team's up for sale sooner than later, and we can kind of move on knowing that's the way it should be.
So for Bron, CP, Draymond, everybody using their platforms to speak on it, even Adam picking up the phone and answering calls from the top players who have vested interests in protecting the league as well, all that stuff matters. And you want to have kind of swift responses and reactions to stuff like that.
