NBA All-Star Stephen Curry Has A New Coach: President Obama

Stephen Curry has teamed up with President Barack Obama to promote the importance of mentoring.

President Barack Obama has teamed with reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry on a public service announcement calling for Americans to mentor youth in their community to make a positive impact.

Their collaboration may be the best one we've ever seen.

The video appeared on the White House's Facebook page on Saturday with the caption, "You don’t need to be an NBA star or the president of the United States to be someone’s hero. You have the power to change a young person’s life by becoming a mentor at"

The PSA showcases the true definition of mentorship as President Obama mentors Curry in his academics and even his jump shot. It is part of campaign by Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership called “In Real Life,” which aims to increase opportunities for minority youths.

At one point, the president even coaches the NBA all-star through how to shoot a basketball. It's a reminder that even the greats can use a little mentoring — and should definitely take time to do a little mentoring, too.

The basketball star also helped with Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, joining the first lady with his wife, Ayesha Curry, holding turnips and dancing to the pop song “Turn Down for What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon.
