Toronto fans have been showing an immense amount of pride in their team throughout their playoff run. While people like Drake claim their behavior is pure excitement, a lot of their antics have been perceived as unsportsmanlike. This was on full display when a video surfaced showing some of the Toronto faithful hurling expletives at Steph Curry's parents.
In the clip, Dell and Sonya Curry are seen exiting their vehicle to enter a Toronto hotel. Upon their arrival, a slew of Raptors fans that lined the entrance began to heckle the Currys.
Though some of the fans tried to offset these jeers by urging the former Raptor not to listen to them because he was the "best," the hate was too much to overcome. This is not the first time Toronto has targeted Steph's family. Following Game 2, Toronto's CP24 decided to interview the crowd at the Raptors' Jurassic Park. One fan took this opportunity to berate Steph's wife, Ayesha Curry, by claiming he was going to "fuck her in the p***y." This prompted a police investigation that led to a man later identified as Tristian Warkentin being arrested on mischief charges.
The footage of fans harassing Curry's parents follows some controversial behavior during Game 5. Early into the second quarter, Golden State superstar Kevin Durant went down with an apparent Achilles injury. Despite this being one of the most devastating injuries for an athlete, Toronto fans cheered in approval as KD was guided off the court. This not only upset KD's teammates, it also disappointed members of the Raptors organization. As a result, an anonymous fan sent the Warriors flowers to apologize for their behavior.
