Curry headlines list of stars at Tahoe's celebrity pro-am golf tournament

Stephen Curry will be among the 90-plus celebrities converging on South Lake Tahoe this weekend for the 28th annual American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

Curry will be making his fifth appearance at the tournament. He has 20-1 odds, according to the Harrah’s and Harveys Race & Sports Book. His father, Dell, who beat Curry last year by one stroke, has 30-1 odds.

Meanwhile, back-to-back champion Mark Mulder, former A's starting pitcher, is chasing a three-peat.

Curry’s best finish was in 2013 when he led the tournament with seven holes remaining before finishing fourth. He's looking to avenge last year’s one-point loss to his father.

Other noteworthy celebrities include actor and musical artist Justin Timberlake, NFL Hall of Famers Jerry Rice, Steve Young, Marcus Allen and Tim Brown, Charles Barkley, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Pavelski and Sebastian Janikowski.

Kerr dreams of world with quiet Trump and LaVar Ball: 'Wouldn't that be great?'

In the real world, the President of the United States Donald Trump started a Twitter feud with LaVar Ball on Sunday. 

Trump believes he should have left three college athletes, including Ball's son LiAngelo, in a Chinese jail for shoplifting. In return, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr wants the two to simply stop talking.

"It would be nice for all of us if both of them would just be quiet," Kerr said to reporters at the Barclays Center. "Wouldn't that be great?"

Coach Kerr on LaVar/Trump beef: “It would be nice for all of us if both of them would just be quiet.”

A post shared by NBC SPORTS BAY AREA (@nbcsauthentic) on

"Modern life. Two people seeking attention and are both getting it, so I'm sure both guys are really happy," Kerr initially said when first asked about the two. 

Unprompted, Kerr then asked reporters for a request to help us all. 

"You know what would help, if all of you stopped covering both of them," Kerr pleaded. "Is that possible? You can probably stop covering LaVar. I don't think you can stop covering the President. I don't think that'll work."

Ex-Warriors All-Star David Lee announces his retirement from the NBA

In the span of about 16 days, David Lee has made a lot of changes to his life.

On Nov. 3, he announced that he got engaged to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

On Sunday, the former Warriors All-Star forward announced his retirement from the NBA with a post on Instagram.

"An epic night celebrating my retirement with my friends and family! Thank you to my amazing fiancée @carowozniacki for planning the surprise!" Lee wrote as the caption for a photo of him with all his friends.

Former teammates Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were among those that "Liked" the posted. Curry even left a comment.

"They'll still always have trouble with the pitch and follow man Man! Congrats," Curry wrote.

Acquired in July of 2009 from the Knicks, Lee played five seasons with the Warriors. During his time in Oakland, he averaged 16.7 points and 9.6 rebounds.

Lee was named to the Western Conference All-Star team during the 2012-13 season. He averaged 18.5 points and 11.2 rebounds per game that season.

The 34-year-old capped off his tenure with the Warriors by winning an NBA championship in 2015. After the playoff run, the Warriors traded Lee to Boston. He spent last season with the Spurs and appeared in 79 games.
