Stephen Curry backs LeBron James’ statements against Donald Trump
President Donald Trump started a firestorm by insulting LeBron James’ intelligence in a tweet late Friday night, and many around the NBA have rallied around the league’s best player. That includes Stephen Curry, who expressed his support for James and what he has been saying and doing off the court.

Curry and LeBron may be rivals on the court, but they have stood up for each other off the court. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen these two stars team up against Trump, as LeBron came to Curry’s defense late last year when Trump disinvited the Warriors to the White House after it became clear the team had little interest in going.
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

The “U bum” statement blew up, and it continues to be clear that LeBron isn’t shy about criticizing the president when he sees fit. James is determined to try to make the world a better place, as evidenced by his statements and the work he’s doing with his foundation. It’s great to see him doing this, and it’s also great to see these stars stand up for each other.
