Reigning NBA MVP Steph Curry won't take a knee during the playing of the National Anthem at Golden State Warriors games, meaning the two most high profile Bay Area athletes -- Curry and 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick -- won't be on the same page when it comes to addressing society's inequality ills. Curry doesn't have any problem with Kaerpernick's approach -- not at all -- but he'll use his own methods to bring attention to social injustice where he sees it. In a wide-ranging talk, Curry told a TechCrunch conference that he's been "part of certain conversations off the grid, finding different ways to make our community better, especially for African-Americans."
But Curry will "most likely" stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner", opting for different avenues and methods to communicate and to make a difference. Note that just because Curry and Kaepernick aren't on the same page doesn't mean they don't have the same book -- they do. "Some people agree with Colin," Curry said. "Some don’t. But the common thread is that there is change that needs to be made.”
