Even NBA stars need to watch their language around Mom. Just ask Steph Curry, whose recent F-bomb after scoring 35 points to beat Houston in game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday caught the attention of, you guessed it, Mrs. Sonya Curry. “She already sent me two home videos, showing me the clip and playing it back. She was telling me how I need to wash my mouth out, saying to wash it out with soap," the two-time NBA MVP told ESPN. In response to his mom's scolding, Curry, a devout Christian, agreed that he needs to "do better." Per USA Today, Curry's dirty word came in the heat of a momentous game. "This is my f---ing house," Curry exclaimed. While admitting the curse word got the fans fired up, Curry's teammate, Klay Thompson, reportedly said he hoped Curry's young daughter didn't hear it.
