Stephen Curry’s Crazy Reason Why He Rejected Nike

Just as an added interesting fact. Ever since 4 years ago, Stephen has teamed up with ‘Nothing But Nets’, a campaign under the United Nations, that aims to stop a malaria epidemic that affects thousands of families in Africa.

Every 60 seconds, a child is killed by Malaria. The organization provides mosquito nets treated with insecticide to save the lives of families in need in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Curry was more than happy to step up and not only help these families, but bring awareness to these staggering numbers. He thought the best way to do it was to incorporate it into his play on the court.

You won’t believe what he agreed to and how many lives he has potentially saved because of it..
