Under Armour Curry 6’s that young Riley helped design have sold out

Under Armour Curry 6’s that young Riley helped design have sold out

When Riley Morrison wrote to Stephen Curry last year, she didn't expect a reply.

The 9-year-old from Napa just wanted a pair of Curry 5’s, but they didn't have any listed on the Under Armour website in the girl's section. In her handwritten note to Steph, she mentioned her disappointment because "girls want to rock the Curry 5’s, too." 

He took care of it. A new type of shoe was invented and instantly became a hit. So much so that they sold out just one day after their release date of March 8 -- International Women's Day.

That didn't take long. 

The two-time NBA MVP invited Morrison and her family to a pop-up shop in Oakland where she was introduced to the Curry 6's she helped design. The purple shoes were put on display, and she had a brand-new pair on her feet.

Sales of the Curry 6 United We Win’s go toward a scholarship that the Currys (Stephen and Ayesha) and Under Armour created in honor of Riley, according to the Under Armour website.

Steph wore the 6's in Friday night's Warriors win over the Nuggets, with Riley in attendance.

Steve Kerr, Warriors will approach Chicago bubble 'like summer league'

Steve Kerr, Warriors will approach Chicago bubble 'like summer league'

Steve Kerr made headlines a month ago when he said the Warriors would not be interested in participating in some sort of summer league with the teams not playing in Orlando.

On Thursday, Golden State's coach provided an update on his perspective as a guest on The Athletic's "Hoops, Adjacent" podcast with David Aldridge and BIG Wos.

"Originally when it was announced that the 22 teams would go to Orlando, we felt like the other eight of us would probably be allowed to do some kind of an in-market training camp. And that is the most preferable scenario for us and frankly for most of the teams," Kerr explained. "But like everything else in the world, there are just so many factors here.

"I respect where the NBA is coming from, where the players' association is coming from, where the guidelines are coming from -- so this is really complex.

"We're gonna do whatever the league asks us to do. If that means going to Chicago for a bubble, then we'll do it."

Well there you have it.

But don't expect players like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins to join the team in the "Windy City." In fact, it's very possible Kerr doesn't make the trip either.

When Aldridge said, "I got to imagine at the very least, younger guys would be the core of your group, right? And maybe some of the younger coaches, frankly, might make that trip," Kerr was transparent.

"We really haven't had a chance to talk about it, but I think those are pretty good assumptions to make," the eight-time NBA champion said. "It would feel like a summer league. If we go to Chicago, it's purely for development."

So guys like Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole, Alen Smailagic and Marquese Chriss would be expected to take the floor.

It's safe to assume new details will emerge at some point this month, but the overwhelming majority of the league's focus right now -- understandably -- is on Orlando.

Watch Steph Curry, Canelo Álvarez spar at celebrity golf tournament

Watch Steph Curry, Canelo Álvarez spar at celebrity golf tournament

Oh no! Steph Curry got in a sparring match.

Just kidding. But the Warriors superstar did have a fake fight with legendary boxer Canelo Álvarez while the two were waiting to play a practice round at the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament in Lake Tahoe.

Canelo made Curry look the least athletic he probably has ever looked -- and that’s saying something. 

Canelo swiped from the left side at Steph and he couldn’t believe it. 

“You’re supposed to move, dude,” somebody shouted as Steph laughed. 

Canelo has just one loss across his career with 53 wins in 56 fights -- 36 of those wins by knockout. That’s probably why he’s dubbed the world’s best active boxer by BoxRec.

Glad it’s Steph and not me.

Don’t worry, nobody was hurt in the making of this Instagram story.
