Curry headlines list of stars at Tahoe's celebrity pro-am golf tournament

Stephen Curry will be among the 90-plus celebrities converging on South Lake Tahoe this weekend for the 28th annual American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

Curry will be making his fifth appearance at the tournament. He has 20-1 odds, according to the Harrah’s and Harveys Race & Sports Book. His father, Dell, who beat Curry last year by one stroke, has 30-1 odds.

Meanwhile, back-to-back champion Mark Mulder, former A's starting pitcher, is chasing a three-peat.

Curry’s best finish was in 2013 when he led the tournament with seven holes remaining before finishing fourth. He's looking to avenge last year’s one-point loss to his father.

Other noteworthy celebrities include actor and musical artist Justin Timberlake, NFL Hall of Famers Jerry Rice, Steve Young, Marcus Allen and Tim Brown, Charles Barkley, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Pavelski and Sebastian Janikowski.

Trump to host Stanley Cup champion Penguins at White House: 'Great team!'

Trump to host Stanley Cup champion Penguins at White House: 'Great team!'

The Warriors won't be going to the White House to celebrate their recent championship.

But the Pittsburgh Penguins will be.

A day after President Trump revoked an invitation to the Warriors, he announced on Twitter that the 2017 Stanley Cup champs will be visiting the White House.

"Please to inform that the Champion Pittsburgh Penguins of the NHL will be joining me at the White House for Ceremony. Great team!" Trump tweeted.

Trump's tweet comes several hours after the Penguins issued a statement regarding a trip to the White House:

"The Pittsburgh Penguins respect the institution of the Office of the President, and the long tradition of championship teams visiting the White House. We attended White House ceremonies after previous championships - touring the historic building and visiting briefly with Presidents George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama - and have accepted an invitation to attend again this year.

Any agreement or disagreement with a president's politics, policies or agenda can be expressed in other ways. However, we very much respect the rights of other individuals and groups to express themselves as they see fit."

The Penguins defeated the Nashville Predators in the Stanley Cup Final this past June.

Curry, Green share thoughts on Carmelo Anthony-to-Thunder trade

Curry, Green share thoughts on Carmelo Anthony-to-Thunder trade

As if the Western Conference couldn't get any more interesting, Carmelo Anthony will reportedly be traded to Oklahoma City on Monday.

With the Warriors engulfed in a war of words with President Trump over a potential visit to the White House, the media didn't have the chance to ask any of the players for their thoughts on the Anthony trade.

But afterwards, Stephen Curry and Draymond Green finally got to think about it and provided their feelings on the trade to The Undefeated.

"I don’t even know about this trade. I just heard about this trade 10 seconds ago. So, they got [Enes] Kanter and … I guess I am happy [for Anthony] because I know he wanted to get out and be in a situation where he felt like what he was doing on the court was actually productive," Curry told Marc Spears.

And the stacked Western Confernece?

“It’s going to be wild to see that trio of guys together. It’s just crazy how the West is getting stronger and stronger. It should be another tough matchup when we play them," Curry said.

While analysts and basketball fans everywhere are excited to see Anthony play with MVP Russell Westbrook and All-Star Paul George, Curry is reserve judgment until he sees the trio on the court together.

“It’s all hard to tell, because it’s all new looks. We don’t know what style [the Thunder] are going to play and how they are going to balance their attack. It will all make itself known as we go through the season," Curry said.

As for Green, he's thrilled for his Team USA teammate.

“I’m happy for him. It doesn’t change my views to who we are as a team. But I’m happy for him, definitely. I don’t hate OKC. They hate me. I don’t hate them. I don’t care. You’re adding a guy who can give you 20 [points] a night. It is definitely going to make you better. I think it definitely helps them," Green said.

The first chance Curry and the Warriors get to see Anthony and the Thunder in person is Nov. 22 in Oklahoma City.
