Early in the fourth quarter of Golden State's dominating Game 2 win over Cleveland Sunday, Steph Curry decided to catch a quick nap.
Cameras caught Curry laying down at the end of the Warriors' bench with a towel over his face:

Perhaps he was really tired, or perhaps he was trying to throw shade at the Cavaliers, who lost, 132-113.
Regardless of Curry's intent, the internet was not pleased:
