Andre Iguodala Steph Curry Unfairly Pressured to Speak On Transgender Laws

Andre Iguodala: Steph Curry Unfairly Pressured ... to Speak On Transgender Laws

Andre Iguodala says his teammate, Steph Curry, was unfairly pressured into taking a public stand against transgender laws in Charlotte ... and called the whole thing a "lose-lose situation."

The Golden State Warriors star appeared on "The Breakfast Club" on Thursday -- and said he thinks it's BS that superstars like Steph and LeBron are always called upon to fight social injustice. He was essentially taking a stand against taking a stand. 

It's an interesting comment ... considering LeBron's speech at the ESPYs Wednesday night. 

But the most interesting part -- when Andre brought up a situation involving Steph Curry that went down right around the time North Carolina passed a controversial law requiring transgender people to use the bathrooms that corresponds to their gender at the time of their birth. 

"Steph's from Charlotte and they tried to make him make a statement about the trans laws," Andre said ... without specifying who was putting the pressure on Curry.

"Why should he have to have an opinion about that? It's a lose lose situation for him no matter which way he goes." 

As for Steph ... he waffled on the topic when first asked about it back in March -- before issuing a slightly stronger statement a few days later. 

If it was up to Andre, he wouldn't have had to comment about it all.
