Steph Curry Responds to Comments Made by Kevin Durant
Approximately a month ago, Durant stated on The Ringer that “nobody wants to play in Under Armours”, a comment that rubbed the two-time NBA champion Steph Curry the wrong way. Curry himself chose to leave Nike for Under Armour back in 2013 and has since generated more revenue than any athlete signed to the multi-billion dollar clothing brand.
“Where we were four years ago and where we are now — you can’t tell me nobody wants to wear our shoes,” Curry told the Observer. “I know for a fact they do.”
“There is nothing that is going to put a wrench in our locker room,” Curry added when asked if Durant’s comments would cause a stir in the Golden State Warriors locker room.
For the 2015-16 NBA season, revenue for Under Armour shoes as well as apparel associated with Curry eclipsed $200-million, before dropping ever-so-slightly the following year due to the lack of success with the Curry 3’s.
