As the age-old saying goes, "You haven't made it until you're named in a major piece of proposed tax reform legislation."

Stephen Curry can now add that distinction to his trophy cabinet, as the GOP's proposed "Tax Cuts & Jobs Act" cites the Warriors point guard as the symbol for individual wealth.

The section of note reads:

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act includes specific safeguards to prevent tax avoidance and help ensure taxpayers of all income levels play by the rules under this new fairer, simpler tax system. Our legislation will ensure this much-needed tax relief goes to the local job creators it’s designed to help by distinguishing between the individual wage income of NBA All-Star Stephen Curry and the pass-through business income of Steve’s Bike Shop.

Curry seems to have taken the symbolic juxtaposition between himself and a small business in a different direction, exploring the possibility of a new side gig:

Fans can debate who the best player in the league is, but only one superstar is getting name-dropped in both GOP legislature and the president's personal Twitter account.
