Being on the cover of a magazine typically is a great honor for an athlete, but in this particular case, Stephen Curry wants no part of it.
In wake of the recent comments made by Donald Trump, the cover of Sports Illustrated’s upcoming issue will feature several members of the sports world who took a stance against the president, including Curry, LeBron James, Roger Goodell and Aaron Rodgers.
And while SI’s cover tries to demonstrate that sports are the great unifier, the Golden State Warriors star believes the image could wind up having the opposite effect.
Curry was the subject of a personal attack from Trump over the weekend. The two-time MVP had expressed disinterest in visiting Trump in the nation’s capital to celebrate the Warriors’ championship, so POTUS took to Twitter to rescind Curry’s White House invitation, which prompted a ton of backlash from athletes across the country.
