NBA Star Steph Curry Was Quick To Respond After Learning He's Mentioned In The GOP's Tax Plan

He probably won’t be championing that tax plan anytime soon.

Steph Curry seemed just as surprised as anyone else upon learning that his name was included in a seven-page outline (the full proposal can be read here) of the GOP’s long-gestating tax plan. Released on Nov. 2, the document cites Curry as an extreme outlier on the individual wage scale, in contrast to a fictional taxpaying small business, Steve’s Bike Shop.

The exact verbiage of the excerpt reads:


“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act includes specific safeguards to prevent tax avoidance and help ensure taxpayers of all income levels play by the rules under this new fairer, simpler tax system. Our legislation will ensure this much-needed tax relief goes to the local job creators it’s designed to help by distinguishing between the individual wage income of NBA All-Star Stephen Curry and the pass-through business income of Steve’s Bike Shop.”

Curry responded with a quick zinger to let the world know he’s in on the joke.

Curry was mentioned by President Donald Trump in the now-infamous tweets that kickstarted a second wave of the NFL’s protest controversy. After thinly veiled statements and rumors led Trump to believe the Warriors were considering turning down the traditional invitation to the White House, the Twitter-happy president shared a public statement calling out Curry and uninviting the team.

So while we might not have any insight into Steph Curry’s fiscal leanings, it’s safe to say he’s probably not going to be championing the tax plan that mentions him anytime soon.
