Stephen Curry brutally roasts the Celtics star

Even a month after the conclusion of the 2022 NBA Finals, Stephen Curry does not appear to be with the Boston Celtics. Or Grant Williams, for that matter. Hosting ESPYs 2022 on July 20, 2022, the Golden State Warriors superstar took a number of shots at Williams, specifically citing that he was with the Celtics and on the losing side of the finals.

“Grant Williams, see you in the building! Nice to see you again, my man! I know you like this color. I’ll lend it to you when I’m done. I might even let you wear a ring.” Curry then jokingly flinched after he finished his roast.

This wouldn’t be the only time Curry toasted the Celtics during the ESPYs. Speaking to Kevin Hart, Curry described his role as a family man, which included being the “proud father of the Boston Celtics.”

Curry didn’t hold back at all when it came to toasting the Celtics or Williams during the awards ceremony. On the other hand, Curry might not have been as hard on either the Celtics or Grant if Williams hadn’t provided the comments on the finals’ outcome.

On July 20, Williams took to Miami Heat sniper Duncan Robinson’s podcast to discuss various topics surrounding him and the Celtics, including Williams’ thoughts on how things were going between them and the Warriors in the Finals.

“When I think back to those games, I will still confidently say: optimistic, they weren’t the better team. They were the more disciplined team. I will say that without a doubt. They’re disciplined, and their… Finals history and Championship pedigree, that was real.”

Williams later added that the Warriors really celebrated the Game 4 win because he felt they knew they shouldn’t have won that game. He then reiterated that Boston’s lack of discipline hurt them badly that game and the rest of that series.

“You should have heard how much they celebrated after Game 4. They screamed like that because they knew they shouldn’t win this game. Things like that have gotten us into the hubris side of things. The discipline of not understanding that maybe we’re the better team… we just weren’t a disciplined team.”

Regardless of who was the better team from a talent perspective, the fact remains that Golden State hoisted the Larry O’Brien trophy in 2022. What could help the Celtics achieve that discipline Williams is talking about is learning from playoff losses like this.

Also, Grant and the Celtics weren’t the only ones getting curries toasted at the ESPYs.

While delivering his monologue at the ESPYs, Curry congratulated the Los Angeles Rams on winning the 2021 Super Bowl and specifically commended them for buying aging stars — in her case, Matthew Stafford — to further their goals, suggesting another remembered in LA team did a few years earlier.

“It was so inspiring to watch you guys play, to watch you all win a Super Bowl, to watch you all celebrate. It’s inspiring to see this strategy of buying old superstars pay off for a local team here.”

Steph read between the lines and teased the Los Angeles Lakers for hiring 34-year-old LeBron James through free agency to help them win their 17th title as a franchise in 2020.

It’s safe to say that no sports star or franchise has escaped Curry’s wrath.
