Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank admitted Thursday that sales for Stephen Curry’s current signature basketball shoe have been disappointing. “Our success in basketball hasn’t been without its learning,” Plank said on the company’s earnings call, during which Under Armour reported its first quarterly loss as a public company. “As we launched the Curry 3 late last year, our expectations continued to run high. And while the 3 played very well on court for Stephen Curry and our athletes, a sluggish signature market and a warm consumer reception led to softer-than-expected results.

The less-than-enthusiastic reception to the Curry 3 has resulted in several retailers discounting it. To get rid of those that haven’t sold, Under Armour has discounted the Curry 3 by almost 30 percent to $99.99. In November, Under Armour lost nearly $600 million of its value as a company after Foot Locker CEO Dick Johnson said the Curry 3 “started off a bit slower than the previous models.”

“We’ve got his back,” Curry continued. “We’ve had certain situations all year [and] previous years where players are down and you’ve got the ‘next man up’ philosophy. Same with Coach Kerr. He’s done a great job of implementing a philosophy and a strategy and an identity of how we play Warrior basketball. And even in his absence, we want to kind of live up to that.

In a podcast with Warriors Sports Radio, Green explained his thoughts about the matter as detailed below — starting with his size. Number one, looking at Steph, he’s not supposed to be what he does. So that right there alone, it pisses people off. Also, he’s way more than what everyone expected him to be or gave him a shot to be. I think most people looked at him ‘oh man, this is a “privileged” kid’ growing up. Like how did he become this? He ain’t supposed to become this. This supposed to be the kid from the hood that never had nothing and had to grind for everything. But when you look at Steph’s life, like they had money, but he wasn’t treated like they had money … they didn’t raise him like he was a privileged kid.
People automatically think that this guy ain’t from the hood, like he ain’t cut from a different cloth, like he supposed to be soft. Like he’s light skin so people make him out to be soft. People make him out to be a soft, jump shooting guy. And he continued to get better and better. But the No. 1 thing, whether it’s former players or current players, all those that hate on Steph. Some of them will show you their hand that they’re hating, and some secretly do it. It all boils down to the saying: “They want to see you do good, but never better than them.” It’s jealousy. But how much of this world is built on jealousy? It ain’t never changing. .. and he’s doing better than a lot of people.
