I can’t wait to meet some of the phenomenal fans and players who are committed to driving the game forward on a global scale.”
The 2016 “Stephen Curry Asia Tour” connects Stephen with the people and culture of these diverse countries through up close and personal interactions, via experiential activations, cultural happenings and more, in an effort to showcase Stephen’s love of the game and unending drive to get better, all while sharing and spreading that commitment and passion for basketball with fans and players alike.
