One Nike Employee Cost The Company Billions By Making A Simple Mistake With Stephen Curry

Following the end of his Nike contract in 2013 he was free to hear pitches from other companies, but Nike still owned the rights to match any deal that was made to him.

Nike set up a meeting with Curry and his father, former NBA player, Dell Curry, at the Oakland Marriott, the same building where the Warriors practiced. Steph said it was a bit awkward hearing a pitch from a company you’re already signed to, especially since you’re familiar with some of the people in the room.
