It’s been there for quite some time, but people are just starting to take notice…
It’s not too often that we get to see athletes bringing the Bible out on the courtbut that’s exactly what Stephen Curry is doing with his trademark shoethrough Under Armour.
Curry created quite the stir when he broke his deal with Nike to partner with UA, but it was for an excellent cause. He wanted to incorporate his faith into his footwear so he could promote a powerful message instead of just anotherempty product.
So what’s the message that’s got people all riled up?
“I can do all things.”
It represents a Bible verse I wear on my shoe, said Curry.Philippians 4:13. It says I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Its also my mantra, how I get up for games and why I play the way I do.
That’s right, Currydoesn’t only have Christ in his heart, but he’s literally takingHim out on the court every step of the way. And he’s NOT afraid to show it.
Nike wasn’t a fan ofthe Sharpie-scrawled verse publicizing their brand…
But NOW,he’s got the same Sharpie-style messageproudly printed onhis UA kicks.
Hecalls it “The Curry One,” and it’s appropriate tagline is “Charged by Belief.”
No wonder why the 6’3″ sharpshooter is basically unstoppable.
Even LeBron James (another devout NBA Christian) said, “[Curry’s] one of the best shooters the NBA will ever see. You just hope he misses.
But Curry willnever take credit for his successes on or off the court.
Obviously, theres a lot of hoopla and fanfare that follows you wherever you go, but I know where my talent comes from, said Steph.I know why I play the game, and its not to score 30 points a night, but its to use the stage Im on. Ive been put here for a specific purpose: to be a witness and to share my testimony as I go through it.
Win or lose, as he heads into March Madness with the Golden State Warriors, Curry’s already got the victory right under his feetliterally.
