The Golden state warrior’s Stephen Curry has become only the second Player to host the ESPYs. That’s Big but it’s what he does on the show that’s bigger.
For sometime now, Brittney Griner a WNBA star has been wrongfully held for transporting transporting cannabis. The whole of the NBA has been showing enormous support and are putting up a stand against it.
On Wednesday Curry along with Nneka Ogwumike and Skylar Diggins shed light on the situation.
“It’s been 153 nights now that BG has been wrongfully detained thousands of miles away from home. Away from her family, away from her friends, away from her team,” Diggins-Smith said.
“All throughout that time, we’ve kept her in our thoughts and in our hearts even though we know that ain’t nearly enough to bring her home, y’all.”
“But as we hope for the best, we urge the entire global sports community to continue to stay energized on her behalf,” he said. “She’s one of us, the team of athletes in this room tonight and all over the world. A team that has nothing to do with politics or global conflict.”
Brittney Griner has been held since february and could face up to 10 years in prison if found guilty on drug trafficking charges.
