Steph Curry injected himself in the great Lebron James-Kyrie Irving separation of 2017 this weekend when he mocked the #LeBronChallenge at Harrison Barnes's wedding with Kyrie beside him laughing.

In a new interview, Curry clarified that he wasn't trying to make fun of Lebron. Instead, the Warrior's star said he was paying tribute because he loves the moves LeBron whipped out while listening to Tee Grizzley's 'First Day Out' and watches the viral video "twice a day."
“I’ve been watching that video twice a day since it happened because it's my favorite video in the entire world,” Curry to The Athletic. “He made a song popular by making a video. And that lives. So now every time I hear that song, that’s all I think about. And I’ve been doing that dance because of him, at my house, at dinner. When something good happens, I pull that out, because I like it and it makes me laugh and it makes me happy. Not making fun of him.” “One thousand percent,” Curry, who didn't know he was being filmed, said. “That was just a casualty of the moment because me and him were hanging out all night. Then that song came on and I was having a good time. Obviously, that’s a separate side story to their relationship, but neither one of us was trying to clown him.”Here's the #LeBronChallenge video that Steph is imitating. Are you buying his "clowning" denials?
