The short clip joins Curry mid-sentence, as he is presumably talking about challenges plaguing the workforce. “…in a multifaceted way, from the challenges to having opportunities to keep people in their jobs, and in the workforce. But then also most importantly, getting to …” he says before the video cuts off at a particularly inopportune moment. The specifics of the class, the topic, or why Curry dialed in are unclear at the moment.
Based on those few words, though, it’s highly possible the Warriors guard was discussing something related to the impact that the coronavirus pandemic has had on people’s economic situations. Curry is clearly making an effort to use his platform to educate and support people during the outbreak. Earlier in the day on Instagram Live, the sharpshooter interviewed Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House Coronavirus Task Force—and the nation’s leading public health expert—about the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fauci broke down the ways in which COVID-19 is far more dangerous than the flu, and the steps that have to be taken around the globe before we can start considering a return to “normalcy” — and eventually basketball.
