Steph Curry on Jimmy Fallon + His article for The Players' Tribune



-Talks about his article "The Noise" for The Players' Tribune in which he wrote about Trump, player protests in the NFL, racial inequality, and how to help veterans
-Reads an excerpt from the article: "Let’s respect — let’s celebrate — our veterans, by having a conversation about the actual ways that we as civilians, as their fellow Americans they’ve fought to protect, can hold up our end of the bargain. Let’s talk about the broken VA medical system, and traumatic brain injuries, and PTSD. But let’s also talk about homelessness, and unemployment, and mental health, and, yes, racial inequality."
-On Trump's tweet: "I had about 30 text messages, all at once. Just blowing up my phone. They were all these friends of mine, just, like, defending me, and telling me that I was right, and, you know, not to worry about it."
-On protests disrespecting the military: "We hear all the time on TV and social media about “supporting our troops.” But it’s not just about saluting them or thanking them for their service at the airport — and it’s definitely not just about how we observe the national anthem."



-Mentions how he almost passed out for daughter Riley's 1st birthday because he had to blow up the balloons on his own
-Talks about wife Ayesha's success and how he's her "avid taste tester" and how he's got the easy job because he "runs for a living"
-Promotes his new 'Curry 4' Under Armour shoes
