Stephen Curry is the greatest shooter who’s ever lived.
That’s a fact. I’m not taking arguments.
Curry is so good he’s going to smash his own single-season record for most three-pointers (from last year). He’s currently hitting nearly five per game while taking OVER 10 triples a night. That’s absurd. He’s cooled down since a torrid start this year and still has a True Shooting Percentage of 68. NOT EVEN FAIR. Even Danny Ainge, Boston’s president of basketball operations and a former Celtic, crowned Curry the best ever. Better than Bird. Better than Ray Ray.
“The reason I think Steph is the best shooter of all time is simply the variety of shots he hits,” Ainge told WEEI.com before the season started this fall. “Left-handed running hook shots, reverses, floaters, 3-point shots off the dribble, behind screens. It’s the variety and the degree of difficulty of the shots he hits.”
And considering Under Armour‘s history of spotlighting Curry’s personal growth, on and off the floor, it’s no surprise they’re highlighting this uncanny ability to make shots with an upcoming colorway of the Curry Two.
Available on Friday at Champs Sports will be the “Storm” colorway of Curry’s latest signature sneaker with UA. This one indeed plays off the “Storm” nickname by keeping the colors focused to dark tones and greys. But it also works as an ode to Curry’s ability to make it rain on the floor.
Curry and Under Armour know how to tell stories through his signature sneaker. So far, they’ve done a tremendous job of lacing the NBA’s reigning MVP with slick colorways, putting meaning behind almost all of them. As you probably know by now, the kid’s jumper is wet. The sneakers are pretty serious too.
