Stephen Curry Calls Golden State Warriors’ Sleeved Jerseys ‘Ugly’

by March 17, 2013

According to noted fashion critic and frustrated basketball player Stephen Curry, the hideous sleeved jerseys that the Golden State Warriors have begun to wear are indeed just that. Per USA Today: “Is Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry concerned after his Cinderella team continued to flirt with pumpkin status on Friday night in what has become a tightly-contested Western Conference playoff race? ‘That’s probably a better question to ask me after Sunday because it’s a big game for us,’ Curry, whose Warriors (37-30) trailed by as many as 36 points in a 113-95 loss to the Chicago Bulls at Oracle Arena, said regarding Golden State’s upcoming game at the seventh-place Houston Rockets (36-30). ‘If we don’t come to play, don’t show up that game, it’s going to be a different feeling because that’s how real that chase becomes at that point. It’s a big game for us.’ As Curry noted several times, every game is big from here on out. For the Warriors, who have lost 13 of their last 20 games after a marvelous 30-17 start and are now only three games better than the ninth-place Utah Jazz, the pressure is an everyday reality. Their security blanket is no more, this favorable schedule down the home stretch — emphasis on ‘home’ — that had seemed to seal the deal on their playoff fate. […] ‘You’re on national TV, NBATV (the game was not nationally televised), wearing our ugly jerseys,’ said Curry, who had just eight points on 2 of 13 shooting and didn’t hit a three-pointer for the first time in 54 games. ‘I shouldn’t have said that (about the jerseys), but it’s just one of those things where there’s a lot of attention on us and we don’t show up to play. And we just come up short. We want to give our fans a show. We want to give them something to cheer about and make it fun for them to come to the game. When they’re leaving with six or seven minutes left, that’s not a good night.'”
