Random Woman Tried To Kiss Steph Curry During Warriors Parade | cassius | born shamelessly
JThere’s nothing wrong with shaking hands and kissing babies once you’ve solidified yourself as an NBA dynasty, right?
Earlier this week, the Golden State Warriors were celebrating their fourth championship ring, and during the parade, Stephen Curry found himself on the receiving end of that unwanted kiss. The team periodically got off the buses and floats they rode in to get closer to the crowds that helped them celebrate their historic victory. However, one lady got a little too excited and tried to smack him while he was distracted by taking a picture with another fan.
She went so far as to wrap her arms around the sniper’s neck before he realized what was happening and immediately began to walk away and turn her head. Security then intervened and completely separated the two parties before anything else happened.
The act was an invasion of privacy, and it is even more egregious that it was committed in the age of COVID-19, where contact with strangers was frowned upon.
It’s just the latest safety issue the Warriors have been embroiled in as a Klay Thompson impersonator – played by YouTube prankster Dawson Gurley – not only snuck into Chase Center ahead of Game 2 of the NBA Finals, but also made his way onto the court to shoot around for 10 minutes.
“An individual impersonated a Warriors player in a deliberate attempt to gain access to unauthorized areas of Chase Center,” a Warriors spokesperson said in an email. “These actions resulted in a lifetime ban from Chase Center and Kaiser Permanente Arena.”
Gurley was later banned from the Chase Center for life after repeatedly compromising arena security. He even shared the official letter of his ban on Twitter, which was signed by Vice President of Arena Security Brian J. Herbert.
