Regarding Trump, Kent Bazemore Goes in Different Direction Than Steph Curry

Programming note: Warriors-Grizzlies coverage starts today at 4pm with Warriors Pregame Live on CSN Bay Area, and streaming live right here.

Kent Bazemore is an Under Armour client.

On Wednesday, the Hawks shooting guard was told about Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank calling Donald Trump an "asset" to the business community.

"That's kind of what my thoughts were when he won the presidency," Bazemore said. "Have a businessman in office, because that's the way the world's trending. Even in the NBA, there's more business and entrepreneurship in athletics these days. And I'm living proof you take care of your brand, good things happen to you."

Earlier in the day, Curry took a shot at Trump by saying that he agees with Plank's usage of the word "asset" "if you remove the 'et.'"

Bazemore went undrafted in 2012 and started his professional career playing for the Santa Cruz Warriors.

He ended up playing in 61 games for Golden State during the 2012-13 season and 44 the following year before being traded to the Lakers in February 2014.

He signed with Atlanta in free agency and after a breakout 2015-16 campaign, he inked a 4-year/$70 million deal last summer with the Hawks.

"We've been living some stuff that's been written for 200-300 years," Bazemore added. "The world has changed. The world has gotten a little smarter. It's good that we have somebody that's hip in that aspect to try to change it."
