SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The ESPY Awards took place earlier this week in Los Angeles and Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry was in attendance.
In addition to becoming the first unanimous MVP in NBA history, Curry walked away Wednesday night with an ESPY award for his record breaking performance by making 402 three-pointers this past season.
But that wasn’t all the 6’3 point guard did that night.
He spoke against gun violence when he presented the Arthur Ashe Award. Zaevion Dobson saved the lives of three girls by jumping in front of gun fire directed towards them and ultimately lost his own life. He was 15 years old.
ESPN rewarded the teen with the courage award at the ESPYS.
In his speech, Curry mentioned the different statistics about guns and how many people die each year because of it.

LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Paul also started the program talking about the recent events involving African-Americans and the police.
