Steph Curry Defends Mocking LeBron James Dance at Wedding

In an interview with The Athletic, Curry addressed the controversy surrounding his dancing - which appeared to be an imitation and perhaps mockery of LeBron James - at Harrison Barnes' wedding on Saturday.

Dallas Mavericks forward Harrison Barnes tied the knot this passed weekend, and plenty of National Basketball Association stars were in attendance including his former teammate, Stephen Curry, and Kyrie Irving.

Of course, because Kyrie was nearby when this #LeBronChallenge went down, it added fuel to the Kyrie vs Cavs beef as fans speculated he and Curry were making fun of 'Bron's workout videos.

"Obviously, I didn't know anyone was filming, so once I saw the video, I knew it was going to blow up", Curry said Tuesday while at the Web.com Ellie Mae Classic.

It may have looked as if he was tweaking LeBron in a social media video that surfaced in which he performed a pretty fair impression of the facial expressions James makes as he works out. Curry said whenever he hears that song he's immediately reminded of the post and when the song came on at the wedding, he felt the need to show off his LeBron moves on the dance floor. "So he's got me doing that dance", Curry said.

"Would I rank LeBron over Kobe in terms of best of all time? No". James's disgruntled teammate, Kyrie Irving, was seen laughing in the video, too. "Not making fun of him".
