It's an annual tradition for the rich, famous and successful to flock to collegiate commencement speeches, hoping to inspire that year's graduating class.
But with just about all schooling in the United States being online due to the coronavirus outbreak, graduations have become universally virtual. Warriors star Steph Curry wasn't going to let that stop him from providing some words of encouragement for the Class of 2020.
S/O to the Class of 2020! This past weekend I celebrated with thousands of high school & college graduates. In case you missed it, tap👇🏽to listen to my message for all the people beginning new chapters of their lives during this crazy time. #ShowMeYourWalk https://t.co/YtFtwMU5i2

"I'm grateful for this opportunity," Curry said. "To congratulate you, the undefeated class of 2020. You're my kind of people, y'all know that. Record setting, history making, you show up to win even in the greatest of adversity."
Curry has tried to provide hope in various ways during the NBA's indefinite suspension, from hosting a Q&A with Dr. Anthony Fauci on the virus to sending a message of support to a local nurse and Warriors fan.
Look at Curry, such an inspiration.
