He’s the golden boy of the Golden State Warriors, but that doesn’t mean he has to be a fan of President Donald Trump.
Stephen Curry used some choice words when asked by the The Mercury News Wednesday about pro-Trump comments made by Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank the day before.
Plank had called Trump a real “asset” to the country in an interview with CNBC. And Curry, who is the closest thing Under Armour has to a face of its brand, agreed with him somewhat, albeit with an important tweak.
“I agree with that description,” Curry said, “if you remove the ‘et’.”
The two-time NBA MVP added that his relationship with Plank is all business ― and he believes Plank’s comments regarding Trump are, too. But he wouldn’t hesitate to walk away from a company if it no longer reflected his values.
“Every opportunity I have to show love, to show respect, to show just that positivity, I feel like that’s my job and that’s what I stand for,” he said.
