Kevin Durant recently had fun at the expense of Stephen Curry wearing Under Armour shoes. The Golden State Warriors teammates don’t have any animosity towards each other but represent different brands. Durant stated on the Bill Simmons Podcast that no one wants to wear Under Armour when discussing the popularity of his Nike shoes.
Curry responded with the following quote when asked about it:
“This is nothing that is going to put a wrench in the locker room. I told him that he has a certain opinion based on his experience growing up in the Nike business. What that means when it comes to the competition among shoe brands and universities and the whole grassroots system and whatnot – he’s entitled to that opinion obviously. … But when it comes to what I’m trying to do with Under Armour, and what the Curry brand means and what Under Armour basketball means, that statement does not ring true at all.”
Curry is one of the rare top athletes that has made the decision to go with Under Armour. It has been a tough task.
