Curry made some waves at the Warriors' media day Friday when he said of a potential White House visit: "I don't want to go".
"You can talk about all the different personalities that have said things and done things, from Kaepernick to what happened to [Michael] Bennett to all sorts of examples of what has gone on in our country that we need to kind of change, " Curry said.

"I think that the president has forgotten that he is the standard bearer for our country, that little boys and little girls look up to the president", he said.
