STEPH GONNA STEPH: Under Armour and NBA2k16 teams up for a Stephen Curry upgrade!


If you’re a basketball fan or even not, you know that Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors are breaking records this NBA season. If you haven’t seen a Warriors game this year, you still have time as they got into the Western Conference Finals and are going against the Oklahoma Thunder. If you can’t wait for the game to start, try browsing videos online just to take a glimpse of the greatness that is Stephen Curry. Even the NBA2k16 version of Steph couldn’t keep up with the insane tricks, shots, whatever you call it that the real-life Stephen Curry does.

Today, in honor of Stephen Curry’s back-to-back MVP season, 2K Sports and Under Armour decided to #breakthegame. For the next 30 hours, beginning on May 12, 2016 Eastern Time, video game Steph will receive an overall rating of 99 in NBA 2K16. The update also unlocks the new colorway for Steph’s Under Armour sneaker, the Curry Two.

Here’s what the folks over at Under Armour has to say about this momentous video game update:

“To celebrate his accomplishments, Under Armour is teaming up with 2K Sports and the preeminent simulation basketball video game, “NBA 2K16,” to honor this achievement by returning Stephen’s character to the game with a 99 overall rating making him the all-time highest shooter ever for an exclusive 30-hour window this week.

Beginning at 3 pm PST / 6 pm EST on Thursday, May 12, “NBA 2K16″ players will be able to download a roster update that brings Stephen’s rating to 99 for 30 continuous hours, a reference to his jersey number. The update will also unlock a brand new MVP colorway of the Curry Two in game, which will be an equippable shoe going forward. To promote Stephen’s rating update, a video, created by Under Armour and advertising agency Droga5 titled “The New Level,” can be viewed here.”

The update is out now! The hype is real! Update your NBA2K16 now and BREAK THE GAME!

Finally, the video game Steph can live up to the real-life Stephen Curry.
