Stephen Curry Leaves Nike, Signs With Under Armour
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, fresh off a season in which he averaged 22.9 points per game, shot 45.3 percent from the 3-point line and dropped 54 points on the New York Knicks in an unforgettable performance in Madison Square Garden, has left Nike and officially signed with Under Armour. The young star will wear the brand new Micro G Anatomix Spawn on the court during the 2013-2014 campaign.
"I joined the Under Armour family because they share my passion for working hard and taking no shortcuts," Curry said. "From what I've seen, they are extremely committed to supporting their athletes on and off the court, as well as building the game's most innovative basketball footwear that will help make my job on the court a little bit easier."
Curry instantly became Under Armour's biggest name among basketball players, joining Raymond Felton, Brandon Jennings, Kemba Walker and Greivis Vasquez. Noticeably absent from the list is former Under Armour athlete DeAndre Jordan, who was spotted wearing Nike shoes during the Los Angeles Clippers media day.
