It seems like it was just yesterday when Stephen Curry put an end to the Sacramento Kings’ season with a 50-point explosion in the first round of the playoffs.
Now, young Kings star De’Aaron Fox has made it loud and clear that it’s all water under the bridge, and there are no grudges whatsoever.
Fox has become the very first NBA player to sign with Curry’s Curry Brand sneaker line.
With that in mind, Steph took to Twitter to give him an effusive salute, shouting him out and showing some pictures of the two working out together.

Notably, Fox was actually a Nike athlete, but his five-year contract expired, so he’s now headed to Under Armour to follow Steph’s steps.
The Curry Brand was announced in 2020, becoming Under Armour’s version of Nike’s Jordan Brand.
Fox already tested the sneakers last season, wearing the Curry Flow 10 last year.
The former Kentucky guard is coming off the best season of his career, finally becoming an All-Star and averaging 25 points, four rebounds, and six dimes per game.
He was also elected as the first-ever Clutch Player of the Year after leading the Kings to their first playoff berth since 2005.
As of now, there have been no more rumors or reports as to who could follow his lead and join No. 30’s brand in the foreseeable future.
But given Curry’s pull and influence in the basketball scene, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him pry multiple rising stars in the years to come.NEXT: Brandon Miller Reacts After Making His NBA Debut
