Stephen Curry agrees changes need to happen after Texas elementary school shooting

Stephen Curry stood behind his coach Steve Kerr after he delivered a passionate speech about the need for a change following the Texas elementary school shooting. After the Golden State Warriors suffered a 119-109 loss to the Dallas Mavericks in Game 4, Warriors head coach Kerr thought there were more important things to speak about than basketball.

Kerr delivered a strong speech and Curry, a father of three kids, agreed that father's worst nightmare is dropping his kids at school and never seeing him again. “I appreciate his leadership. It was on everybody’s mind coming into the game.

Just kind of hard to, you know, stay focused and going out playing basketball and knowing what happened in this state. I got kids, send them to school every day, drop them off and you feel for the parents that are going through what they’re going through," Curry said.

“I can’t even imagine the pain, so for coach to come out here and say what he said, and every word was powerful was meaningful, I accept that challenge of trying to figure out a way to use my voice again and platform to help hopefully make change and you can tell what it meant to him.“

Curry admitted Game 4 was difficult

In Game 4, Curry scored 20 points, grabbed five rebounds and dished out eight assists.

The Warriors won the fourth quarter by a 19-point margin but overcoming a 29-point deficit was just too much for them. “Obviously, your mind wanders from time to time, but especially the moment of silence before the game and all of that, so it’s tough, but it reminds you how blessed we are to be able to do what we do and that we can’t get lost in the basketball game for two and a half hours, you know even though it is difficult, knowing what is going on in our country," Curry said.

After Game 4, Kerr yelled as he called for changes. "When are we going to do something?" Kerr yelled, slamming his fists on the table. "I'm tired. I am so tired of getting up here and offering condolences to the devastated families that are out there.

I am so tired of the, excuse, I am sorry, I am tired of the moments of silence. Enough!" Following a Game 4 loss, the Warriors own a 3-1 lead and will have a chance to close out the series in Game 5 in San Francisco.
