Steph Curry honors Breonna Taylor on shoes at Lake Tahoe golf tournament

Steph Curry honors Breonna Taylor on shoes at Lake Tahoe golf tournament

Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman, was shot and killed by Louisville police executing a no-knock search warrant on March 13.

Nearly four months later, the three police officers involved in Taylor's death haven't been arrested. One has been fired.

Athletes across the country have been calling for justice for Taylor, including Warriors superstar Steph Curry.

Curry wore special shoes that honored the memory of Taylor on Friday while playing in the American Century Championship golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.

He was asked about his tribute to Taylor during NBCSN's broadcast.

"Obviously not to forget to Breonna Taylor in terms of finding justice for her," Curry said. "As life goes on, we're all using our platform to shed light on the injustices going on and I wanted to use this opportunity to celebrate her life and try to continue the impact everyone is trying to have in terms of continuing this meaningful conversation of how we make change for ourselves, the next generation and our kids."

Curry has been using his voice over the last few months to call for racial equality.

In June, Curry and Klay Thompson attended a peaceful protest in Oakland that was organized by Warriors teammate Juan Toscano-Anderson. A few days after that, Steph and wife Ayesha attended a protest in Palo Alto.

A few weeks later, Curry joined a virtual discussion titled "The Dream Marches On," hosted by the University of San Francisco.

“This is a great time to be alive,” Curry said during the event on Jun 19. “I’m excited to see what this next generation does as they venture out on their own. The people I got to walk with at a protest, young men and women of all ages, people are meeting the moment.”

Curry will be a part of NBC's "Race and Sports in America: Conversations," which will air at 5 p.m. PT on Monday on NBC Sports Bay Area.

While Curry won't be in Orlando while his NBA peers wear social justice messages on their jerseys, the two-time NBA MVP used his platform Friday to honor one of the many victims of police brutality.

Damian Lillard matches Steph Curry in impressive 3-point shooting stat

Damian Lillard matches Steph Curry in impressive 3-point shooting stat

There has been an abundance of comparisons between Steph Curry and Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard as of late, most of which are prisoner-of-the-moment takes based in ignorance.

Yes, Lillard has been absolutely incredible during the NBA restart in leading the Trail Blazers to the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.

No, he has not surpassed Curry as the best point guard in the game.

That said, Lillard arguably is closing the gap. And now, he has done something that no player other than Curry has accomplished in NBA history.

Lillard ended the regular season Thursday having shot 40.1 percent from 3-point range on 10.1 3-point attempts per game, becoming just the second player in league history to post that kind of efficiency on such high volume. Curry, of course, is the other, and he has done it twice.

[RUNNIN' PLAYS PODCAST: Listen to the latest episode]

In his unanimous MVP season in 2015-16, Curry shot a ridiculous 45.4 percent from long distance on 11.2 3-point attempts per game. Then, in 2018-19, he made 43.7 percent of his 11.7 3-point attempts per contest.

And he just barely missed accomplishing the feat a third time.

In 2016-17, Curry shot 41.1 percent from 3-point land, but didn't attempt enough 3s to qualify.

He literally was one attempt short.

So, technically, Lillard will only have to do it once more to match Curry. 

That is, unless Curry reminds everyone next season why he's the greatest shooter in NBA history.

Damian Lillard, Oakland native, gets Twitter shoutout from Raiders

Damian Lillard, Oakland native, gets Twitter shoutout from Raiders

The Portland Trail Blazers outlasted the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night to earn a spot in the Western Conference play-in tournament.

Shortly thereafter, the Las Vegas Raiders showed Oakland native Damian Lillard some love on Twitter.

The shoutout was much deserved, as Dame averaged 51.3 points and 9.0 assists over the Blazers' final three seeding games, while shooting better than 56 percent overall and nearly 49 percent from deep (on 14.3 attempts).

Those numbers never will seem real.

Although Lillard let it be known years back that he was not happy with the Raiders for leaving Oakland, he still roots for the Silver and Black.

Dame -- who went to Oakland High School his junior and senior years -- also made it clear last November he did not support the Warriors moving from Oakland to San Francisco.

The five-time NBA All-Star will be back in action Saturday at 11:30 a.m. PT, as the No. 8 seed Blazers face off against the No. 9 seed Memphis Grizzlies.

If the Blazers win, they advance to the first round of the playoffs to take on Los Angeles Lakers. If the Grizzlies win, then Memphis and Portland will do battle again on Sunday to determine who will play the Lakers.
