Stephen Curry had 30 points in a win over the Pelicans on Tuesday in New Orleans. Midway through the third quarter, Steph hit a contested three on the sideline near the Pelicans bench. When he turned, Pelicans assistant Darren Erman was standing there. Curry put out his hand and Erman, a former Warriors assistant under Marc Jackson, slapped it.
Erman was with the Warriors from 2011 to 2014 when he was fired for a “violation of company policy” which turned out to be secretly recording conversations between coaches and players. After being fired Erman almost immediately ended up (back) in Boston and joined the Pelicans ahead of the 2015 season.
