Back in 2017, Golden State Warriors Star Step Curry made it very clear that as NBA champions he had no interest in visiting the White House because of his dislike of President Trump.
Well, this year it turns out that Curry will not have to worry about what to do with any White House invite, since his team lost in 6 games to the Toronto Raptors.
In a critical moment of Game 6, Curry missed a go-ahead shot with 8 seconds left that would have likely forced a Game 7.
Some on social media attributed Curry’s loss to “the Trump Curse”

The decision seemed fairly obvious in Stephen Curry’s mind, as the Warriors’ star player has remained vocally critical over President Trump regarding his policies and his rhetoric.
Hence, Curry hardly minced words on whether the Warriors would make a White House visit this year, a custom for all professional sports teams that just won a championship.
“My views haven’t changed at all. I don’t know if anybody’s changed. But that’s where I stand right now,” Curry said on Friday during the Warriors’ media day at their practice facility. “I don’t want to go. That’s my nucleus of my belief.”
Several of Curry’s teammates as well as coach Steve Kerr have become just as outspoken both about Trump and their feelings about a White House visit. Warriors forward Kevin Durant has said he will not go, and added on Friday that “it’s going to be tough to change my mind.” So has Warriors veteran forward David West, who said, “I will let everyone know my opinion.” Warriors forward Draymond Green quipped, “I have an opinion on pretty much everything.”
