Steph Curry Wore A Kentucky Jersey At Practice To Make Good On An NCAA Tournament Bet

Stephen Curry may be the most famous Davidson alum on the planet, so he got some flack when his team got beat by Kentucky in the Men’s NCAA Tournament.

But there was something more than just pride among an NBA full of former Wildcats at stake, as it turns out Curry had made a bet with a former Kentucky player very familiar to the Golden State Warriors.

Kelenna Azubuike is an ex-Wildcat and now works for NBC Sports Bay Area as a studio analyst that covers the Warriors, and it turns out he made a bet with Curry. The deal was simple: If Davidson loses, Curry had to wear his Kentucky jersey to a Dubs practice. The two-time MVP made good on that NCAA Tournament bet on Friday.

Curry admitted that his ankle isn’t going to be 100 percent the rest of the season, and his mood couldn’t have been great having to wear a Kentucky jersey, but he did look good in practice.

Azubuike posted about the bet later on Friday, and it did seem like everyone was in good spirits about it, though Curry joked that he wasn’t very happy to see him at practice.

Azubuike called it a “perfect fit” on Twitter, though Curry complained that the jersey was a bit too long.

What matters most for Warriors fans, though, is that Curry actually planned to play on Friday despite his ankle injury. As long as he’s on the court and (mostly) healthy, I doubt Warriors fans care at all what he is wearing in practice.
