OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry says Colin Kaepernick’s omission from a Sports Illustrated cover featuring sports figures linking arms in protest solidarity is “terrible.”

The cover references the protests surrounding the national anthem ahead of NFL games last weekend. Curry is shown in the photo illustration appearing to link arms with LeBron James and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

The anthem protests stem from Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the “Star Spangled Banner” last season, his final one with the San Francisco 49ers. Curry tells the San Francisco Chronicle that “if you don’t have Kaepernick front and center on that, something’s wrong.”

SI executive editor Steve Cannella responded to criticism of the cover earlier this week, saying it attempted to capture “new voices” in the debate.

    It’s funny now that this movement has pick up steam and more players have gotten involved they’re trying to erase Kaepernick out of the equation. Like I said, black players be weary of these white team owners and players standing in solidary with you because the white man helps no one if it doesn’t benefit him, and he’s for no one except himself.

  2. Kaepernick not being on the cover is no biggie to me because I’m not a sports fan. The only time I EVER glance at that mag is when the naked athlete’s issue comes out. And then I only view the photos online. They’re beautiful images.
