Kevin Durant went on the Bill Simmons podcast and said no one wants to play in Under Armour sneakers.
When word got back to Steph he decided to have a little chat with KD. The Charlotte Observer has the details.
“I told him that he has a certain opinion based on his experience growing up in the Nike business,” Curry said of Durant. “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.”
How did they leave it at the end of their recent conversation? With mutual respect. Curry said he respects all of Durant’s work with Nike and that “KD respects my business and my brand.”
KD maybe the Finals MVP, but Steph is still the leader of the Warriors.
