Default Durant mocks Curry: Nobody wants to play in Under Armors

Quote:
Kevin Durant has an endorsement deal with Nike and he toed the company line against Under Armour in a podcast interview with Bill Simmons of The Ringer released Monday.

"Shoe companies have a real, real big influence on where these kids go," Durant said, via Josh Stirn of 247Sports. "Nobody wants to play in Under Armours, Iím sorry. The top kids donít because they all play Nike."

"Everybody knows that [nobody wants to play in Under Armour shoes]. They just donít want to say nothing," the former MVP added. "But the kids that play that grew up in an Under Armour system. They go to Maryland."

Durant nearly signed a 10-year contract in 2014 with Under Armour worth $250 million, but ended up sticking with Nike for a deal worth up to $300 million.

Interestingly though, the Golden State Warriors star just won his first title with the help of Stephen Curry, who is one of Under Armour's biggest stars. The two-time MVP is signed with UA through 2024.

Durant also credited the Under Armour connection with helping Maryland land recruits, even though he personally chose to play for Texas despite growing up close to College Park in Prince George's County. He explained his decision came from the fact "he didn't want to stay home."

With founder and CEO Kevin Plank graduating from the school, it remains a flagship program of the company as Oregon is with Nike. Considering the ever-growing list of schools changing apparel like UCLA, Notre Dame, Wisconsin and more, however, the Terrapins have plenty of competition even on the UA circuit.

Looks like there is going to be a serious chemistry issue for the Warriors upcoming season. They are still good enough to win next year despite this, seeing how the Lakers in 2004 made it to NBA Finals with Shaq and Kobe's problems going on. In a long run though, this is definitely going to hurt.

It's crazy too. Usually winning 1 guys are still humble and hungry for more.

Love Durant but the saddest thing is Golden State didn't even get as much press for their title or him.

Why would you say this when your teammate is Curry? Unnecessary drama.

Joining an already elite team shouldn't get him too much press. The best thing he did for GS as far as definitively putting them out of Cleveland's reach( as far as how their teams were constructed last year) was making Lebron more accountable on the defensive end than he's ever had to be as far as his direct matchup. There's a big difference between Harrison Barnes where you can do your thing on offense and roam on defense, versus having to worry about KD dropping 35 on you in his sleep, made even easier by GS's spacing due to already historically great team shooting ability. As for the topic, not sure why he would say that about his own teammate.

Durant doesnt give a shit about Curry, dude has been cemented as the alpha man in the Warriors, Curry's status as sidekick is all confirmed.

its messed up though. One dude got drafted by the Warriors, played through rough times alongside Monta Ellis, proceed to build a dynasty, breaking records left and right, while receiving b2b MVPs, one of them being a unanimous one. Had the most formidable western team built around him and won a ring.

Then we have this guy, who just conveniently join the Warriors after they torn him a new one. And just takes over the team next season and talked shit about the original leader.

I hope Durant has a real friend

Yeah, this is really strange. Lebron came into the Heat and took over the team from Wade, but at least he is a good friend with Wade never talked bad about his friend. I've no idea whats wrong with Durant, hes really melting down hard against all the negative comments from fans. At first it seems funny when he pwns a few stupid haters, but now hes getting pwned and he lost it.

and look what that got them in their first year... the worst Finals loss of all time. Lebron didnt accomodate Wade. Curry, otoh, perfectly accomodated Durant to HIS 70 win team, and actually had Kevin poasting the best numbers of his career. THAT is the difference biatch!

I don't think that's the case. KD is just a bit dense, so he probably wasn't thinking. Not a smart move for team chemistry though. Curry not gonna like that

You dudes are counting "wins" as KD taking Curry's team. I guess that's what you cling as a victory while you watch your hero get embarrassed over and over again. And Shuttlesworth, time to remove that gif. Thanks to the Warriors, he will never be in consideration for the GOAT.
