September 20, 2020 4:00 pm

Even though Steph Curry is gutted to have not been a part of the NBA’s bubble, the 2x MVP is gearing up strong for the upcoming season. Moreover, he’s showing tremendous support to Joel Embiid, who is just the second Under Armour athlete to receive a signature shoe. 

A majority of the athletes in the NBA are leaning towards Nike at the moment. However, Steph and Embiid are one among the few who are sporting their flashy UAs.

While Steph has seen plenty of signature designs come his way, this is the first one for Embiid. ‘The Process’ is just the 16th current NBA player to have his signature line of sneakers 

The Philadelphia 76ers‘ big man appeared in a recent commercial that promotes his new line of sneakers. It is named the UA “Embiid 1 Origin,” and is splashed with Cameronian colors to denote Embiid’s origins. 

Steph is overjoyed to receive another athlete in the UA family’s signature line of sneakers. Embiid signed with the brand in 2014, and ‘The Process’ is in his debut line of signature kicks. 

As the 3x NBA champ Steph Curry is training hard for his return, he switched from his traditional sneakers for a moment. Curry got his hands on the new Origins and posted a video on his Instagram story to excite fans. 

When Steph Curry impersonated ‘The Process’ through a hilarious video

Before Steph posted a video of gearing up in the UA Origin, he welcomed Embiid to the signature shoe line in exciting fashion. When the bubble seeding games were going on, Steph unfortunately wasn’t a part of it.

He made the most of his time preparing for the next season and even took time to mimic Joel Embiid’s demeanor on the court. Curry made a layup similar to how the Sixers’ center would do it. Furthermore, after making the bucket, Curry ran away and took a hilarious take on Embiid’s celebration, and nailed it!

Joel Embiid is the only center in the league who has his signature line of sneakers. There’s a lot of hope residing around him, and the Sixers fans have immense faith in ‘The Process’ to step up and deliver alongside all-star guard Ben Simmons.
