Seth Curry to ESPN on Donald Trump uninviting the Warriors to the White House and singling out his brother, Stephen: "I just think it's childish, first and foremost. I'm proud of the way that Steph and the whole Warriors organization handled that situation. I think they were very mature about it. I'm proud of the way Steph took a stand and didn't back down from it and things like that. That's a great role model for kids to look up to and for the country to look at. Guys like him, LeBron, some of those stars in the NBA who have spoken out, took their stands and have been positive and great leaders. I mean, if you can't look at the president as somebody who you can look up to, you have other people who you know their names that can set a good precedent for the way kids should act in this day and age."
On Trump criticizing athletes for peacefully protesting, Seth Curry said: "It's not good. It's not a good precedent to set where people get criticized for doing things peacefully and causing no problems violently or things like that, just letting their voice be heard. It's not a good precedent to set. I'm proud of the way the NBA's handling it, a lot of the players are handling it, speaking out. It's just a sad day when you've got NBA players – Steph and LeBron and those guys – who are acting more mature than the president of the United States. I follow their lead in trying to change the culture and change the climate of the country by using my voice and trying to use it in a positive way and not letting the supposed leader of our country [dictate where he] is taking us."
