Steph Curry & Steve Kerr Call Out Sports Illustrated Cover For Not Including Kaepernick

On the latest Sports Illustrated cover, the magazine decided to tap into the biggest issue going on in sports: the national anthem protests.

It could’ve been a very powerful cover, if not for one crucial missing piece.

The cover featured everyone in sports who has been vocal or involved in some form or fashion with the anthem protest or politics in general. Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was right there, front and center, after his back and forth with President Donald Trump. But he was still not happy about the cover.

Why? Because Sports Illustrated forgot the one person who got this movement started last year. Colin Kaepernick.

“That was terrible,” Curry said (via Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle). “It’s just kind capitalizing on the hoopla and the media and all that nonsense. The real people that understand exactly what’s been going on, and who’s really been active and vocal and truly making a difference, if you don’t have Kaepernick front and center on that, something’s wrong.”

Curry continued:

 

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr also had the same problem with SI’s cover missing Colin Kaepernick.
