Stephen Curry has had a rather rewarding week. First, he won the 2022-23J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award. A few days ago, he was the title of the 2023 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Social Justice Champion. Steph was invited on Inside the NBA for a special presentation of the latter. While he was on with the crew, Shaquille O Neal joined with him for getting him in trouble, referring to the FTX lawsuit. Curry then went on to claim Charles Barkley hustled him in Golf in 2020.
Stephen Curry claimed Charles Barkley hustled him in a $5.4 Million Charity Game
In 2020, Stephen Curry teamed up with Peyton Manning to take on Charles Barkley and Phil Mickelson. It was a charity Golf game named The Match: Champions for Change. The money raised for the event was going to Historically Black Colleges and Universities(HBCUs).
$4.4 Million was raised during the contest, and another $1 Million was added through bonus challenge holes. Phil Mickelson and Charles Barkley secured the win in the contest and thus chose their charities to receive the benefits from the winnings.
With challenge holes included the total was more than $5.4M 👏 https://t.co/Gj6qKLDjxu

It s been nearly 2.5 years, but Steph has t forgotten about his loss. While on a video conference with the inside guys, Charles Barkley asked Steph about his Golf preparation for the upcoming contest and how he s splitting his time. Curry replied and said,
I’ve been out since two Fridays ago, so I m 50-50 right now[between the basketball range and golf course]. I m getting a bit of family time right now, but I m definitely preparing. The only silver lining of not playing basketball right now is that I get a little more preparation since the last time you and Phil Mickelson hustled me out in Arizona. Me and Klay, we ll be a little more prepared for this one, and it’ll be fun with Travis[Kelce] and Patrick[Mahomes].
