NBA star Stephen Curry on Thursday joked about his name being included in a document outlining the new GOP tax reform plan, which mentioned his professional earnings in comparison with small business owners. 

The document from the House Ways and Means Committee explains how the proposal would differentiate "between the individual wage income of NBA All-Star Stephen Curry and the pass-through business income of Steve’s Bike Shop" regarding loopholes for small businesses.

The Golden State Warriors point guard responded on Twitter:
