Unsurprisingly, top Under Armour endorser Steph Curry disagrees with his teammate Kevin Durant's statement about nobody wanting to play in Under Armour sneakers. In an interview with the Charlotte Observer, Curry defended the brand.
"Where we were four years ago, and where we are now—you can’t tell me nobody wants to wear our shoes," he said. "I know for a fact that they do."
Curry said that he and Durant had a conversation about the comment, and that it won't get in the way of team dynamics.
"I told him that he has a certain opinion based on his experience growing up in the Nike business,” he told the Observer. “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."
Durant's recent Under Armour comment wasn't the first time that he has criticized Curry's footwear.
