Stephen Curry on Kanye West’s Twitter mention: ‘Funny and honoring’
Stephen Curry didn’t know exactly how to react to Kanye West giving him a Twitter shout-out recently. But the Golden Warriors sharpshooter ultimately decided to take it as a compliment, regardless the nature of the rapper’s patently peculiar musings.
West of course has been a prolific — not to mention amusing, controversial, bizarre and outlandish — force on social media of late, a development that oddly has coincided with the release of his latest album, “The Life of Pablo.” Strange how that happens.
In any event, West over the weekend used Curry and Michael Jordan to make a boastful proclamation about his magnificence.
I am the Jordan and Steph Curry of music, meaning I'm the best of 2 generations.

“I’ve seen a lot of his [Kanye’s] crazy outlandish tweets, especially in the past month, and then when I saw my name cross through his fingertips, that was kind of funny and honoring at the same time,” Curry told reporters on Thursday night, via Eye on Basketball. ” But then also very weird that he put me in the same conversation as Michael and Kanye.”
Curry then addressed a meme that has been making the rounds involving a bizarre image containing himself, Jordan and West’s face.
“Someone did a graphic of me in my jersey and Jordan, they dubbed him guarding me, and Kanye’s face was on both of us,” he continued. “That’s my favorite meme of all time — or so far to-date. I’m gonna have to get that blown up on my wall or something.”
And the meme Curry is referencing.

Very well then. In conclusion, just like essentially everything involving one Kanye West, Stephen Curry’s experience in the aftermath of a social media shout-out by the superstar musician was one bizarre trip featuring a whole lot of weird.
