Did Steph Curry anger Russ Westbrook with a dismissive prediction?
You can't fault Steph Curry for feeling confident in himself and his team.
The Golden State Warriors have dispatched nearly all comers and have lost only four games all season . . . but they have yet to play the Oklahoma City Thunder this year.
That'll change on Feb. 6, when Curry and the Dubs host Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and OKC in Oakland.
The Thunder are having a pretty good season themselves, but Curry didn't sound too worried on Thursday. In fact, he predicted wins by both the Warriors and the Carolina Panthers (his favorite NFL team) next weekend.
That doesn't seem to have sat well with Westbrook, judging by his reaction:
Maybe this will serve as motivation for the Thunder? Or maybe they'll end up on the wrong end of a rout, just like most other contenders have this season vs. the Warriors.
