NBA MVP Stephen Curry will show his hometown pride and support pal Cam Newton on Saturday night by wearing blue Under Armor shoes during the Golden State Warriors game.
The Charlotte-native and three-time NBA All-Star has his own line of Under Armor “Curry Two’s,” including one called “Providence Road” which pays homage to his hometown.
The San Jose Mercury News reported Friday that Curry has six tickets to the Super Bowl game and plans to take his family. Curry will wear a custom Under Armor shirt that shows him banging the Panthers’ “Keep Pounding” drum, the newspaper reported.
