A day after honoring Breonna Taylor on the golf course, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry continued his fight for social justice by wearing a powerful “Black Lives Matter” shoes.
For those who don't know, Curry is once again playing in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe. The Warriors star, though, wants to make sure he's using his platform to instill change in America no matter the occasion.

Taylor, an emergency medical technician, was fatally shot eight times by the Louisville Metro Police Department while in her home. Brooklyn Nets superstar point guard Kyrie Irving is actually working with PlayersTV to produce a television program centered around the killing of Taylor.
Stephen Curry and the Warriors aren't in Orlando for the restart of the 2019-20 season, but that doesn't mean the two-time MVP and three-time champion won't stop speaking out on racial injustices in America. It's clear that Curry will continue to champion those who are working to enact change for and to empower African Americans in the US.
As most people know, Curry is a talented golfer. In fact, if he wasn't in the NBA with the Warriors, Steph might be on the PGA tour. He's having a lot of fun this weekend playing with his dad, Dell Curry, and other celebrities.
Curry was only able to play in five games for the Warriors in the 2019-20 season due to a broken left hand. He averaged 20.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists.
