Wednesday was a big day. The Warriors beat the Spurs, 121-99, moving their record to 8-6.
And oh yeah, and that other thing. It was inauguration day, as the U.S. had a peaceful transfer of power to the new president, Joe Biden, and his new vice president, Kamala Harris.
Harris is the first woman to hold the office, and she is the first Black person to hold the office, as well, having been born in the United States to Indian and Jamaican immigrants. She also happens to be from Oakland.
Warriors star guard Stephen Curry tweeted out his approval before the Spurs game, expressing joy at the inspiration his young children, two of them girls, could gain from this incredible moment in American history.
Curry and the Warriors were open about their disdain for the previous president, former reality TV star, Donald Trump. Trump was arguably the worst president in the history of the U.S., as he lost the popular vote twice and was also impeached twice. His term ended with an insurrection at the nation’s capital executed by his own supporters, after the former president had fed them a huge lie since he lost the election, incorrectly claiming that he won.
So the Warriors were right to have their disdain, after all. It’s a new era, however, and hopefully for the U.S., Vice President Harris and President Joe Biden continue to inspire Curry’s family and the entire country, too.
Bonus coverage: The Warriors wore their new “Oakland Forever” jerseys on Wednesday, and that same style jersey will hang on the wall of the new vice president, thanks to Curry and the Warriors. Check out the beautiful video below for more comments from Curry and a word from Oakland’s own, Vice President Harris.
