He reportedly said, “I also know, regarding the Dubs, there have been a lot of rumors, I know that my name has come up and everyone’s name has come up except for Stephen Curry… to be honest, I do not think about it one bit. I don’t make much of it. Rumors are just that, They are rumors… I hear the same things that all of you guys hear. That is the gift and the sad curse of social media.”
