It's clear that plenty of players in the NBA don't support President Donald Trump, especially after his recent comments about LeBron James.
Steph Curry is one of these players who is trying to follow in James' footsteps by making a bigger difference off the court than he does on it. After President Trump called LeBron James stupid following the opening of his new school, Curry had to set his sights on the President.
Curry believes Trump's comments about James are clearly based on racism.
Stephen Curry says Donald Trump’s tweet about LeBron was based in racism: "Unfortunately, that's being revealed more and more as the days go on,” per @loganmmurdock https://t.co/cfMkpMkR2H pic.twitter.com/FhIhPtIRhg— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) August 9, 2018
Add this chapter to the feud between the President and the Golden State Warriors.
"That rhetoric is all based in some longstanding racism in terms of black men with a voice in power," Curry said of Donald Trump's tweet questioning James' intelligence, per Logan Murdock of the Mercury News. "Unfortunately, that's being revealed more and more as the days go on."
What also has become apparent is that Curry and the rest of the Warriors have no problem going against the President, as they showed when they decided not to go to the White House.
The former MVP has tried to focus on making a difference rather than taking the bait from the President, but this latest instance couldn't be ignored.
With Curry speaking out on Trump criticizing LeBron, timely to reintroduce this piece earlier on how Curry has focused more on his philanthropy than "noise" on Trump criticism https://t.co/pLOvPh026C— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) August 8, 2018
Just sit back and wait for the response on Twitter from President Trump. You know this one can't possibly be over.
