WASHINGTON – Golden State Warriors guard Stephen “Steph” Curry, who recently played golf with President Barack Obama in Martha’s Vineyard, dished to Jimmy Kimmel Tuesday night about a competitive, trash-talking Obama.
Curry described set the scene as a 4-foot putt, just playing a friendly game with no bet.
“Usually, it’s a gimme,” Curry said. “He’d be crickets, just silent, looking at you like, ‘Alright, you’re going to mark your putt? Alright, you’re going to make that?’ Put the pressure on you . That kind of deal. Talk about [how] ‘You’re shaking.'”
Curry played the round of golf with his father Dell Curry against Obama and NBA player Ray Allen, who is currently a free agent.
Curry said the Obama also “made fun” of Allen, who had a whole posse with him.
“[Obama] said [Allen]…needed a bus for all the people he brought to the course to meet the President,” Curry said.
Kimmel asked if it was a relaxing experience, and Curry said that he “couldn’t relax at all” because there were “25 Secret Service agents” and snipers “around every hole.”
Curry said Obama and Allen won.
During his two-week Martha’s Vineyard vacation, Obama also played golf at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oaks Bluff with retired NBA player Alonzo Mourning, former President Bill Clinton and others.
