Last Friday, September 22, Golden State Warrior’s player Stephen Curry had a press conference during the Warriors’ Media Day. This year’s Media Day marks the unofficial start of the 2017-2018 basketball season where the players pose for photos, record promotional materials, and hold press conferences. During Curry’s press conference, he was asked about what statement he would like to make by declining the White House’s invitation after winning an NBA championship this past June. Curry’s response was straightforward, “By acting and not going, hopefully that will inspire some change when it comes to what we tolerate in this country[.]” Of course, Trump was not going to stay quiet regarding Curry’s comments.
