NBA Star Steph Curry Delivers Perfect Response After Being Mentioned in GOP Tax Plan
Given President Donald Trump‘s well-chronicled feud with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, it doesn’t seem the one athlete — indeed the one person — to be mentioned by name in a key explainer for the new GOP tax plan would be Golden State’s star player. But lo and behold, Trump nemesis Stephen Curry — one of the faces of the NBA — makes a cameo.
In a portion of the document addressing concerns about small business taxes, Curry’s name was invoked to try to assuage fears that high wage earners like the basketball star will be taxed at a higher rate than business owners who may have “pass-through” money, but are not profiting individually.
“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,” the explainer read.

Curry’s retort was simple and spot on:
I wonder if Steve’s Bike shop is hiring…
