Steph Curry is an absolute monster of the basketball court.
His Golden State Warriors are dominating the NBA right now and have a chance to finish the NBA season with the best record ever.
Off the court, Curry is a man of deep Christian faith, and he recently walked away from a deal with Nike in order to be able to show his faith on his sneakers with Under Armour.
It’s pretty awesome.
Curry, 26, used to have a deal with Nike but chose to connect with Under Armour so that he could blend his faith with his signature shoe. The Curry One is slated for a Feb. 13 release, and Curry has been promoting the sneaker with the tagline “charged by belief.”
Curry spoke about his idea to include the phrase in his first signature shoe for Under Armour.
“It represents a Bible verse I wear on my shoe,” Curry told the media, according to Rapzilla reports. “Philippians 4:13. It says ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ It’s also my mantra, how I get up for games and why I play the way I do.”
Steph is definitely going to gain some new fans on this one.
In this day and age it’s rare to see athletes speak about their faith so openly. It seems we only hear about athletes when they get in trouble with the law.
Props to Steph.
