Stephen Curry Hits the Nike Laboratory to Figure Out How He’s Injuring His Ankle
Stephen Curry has sprained his ankle multiple times. These things don’t just happen. You can’t injure your ankle more than one time playing professional basketball. It just doesn’t make any sense. So what type of explanation could there be for this unusual phenomenon? It must be the shoes.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Curry recently traveled to the Nike laboratory in Beaverton, Ore. His mission: finding a shoe that fits properly. Curry had his shoes and foot analyzed and came to the conclusion that his ankle has a tendency to roll outward, which has been causing his low ankle sprains.
Curry has decided to switch to a different sneaker while he waits for the complete analysis to come in. He has changed to a Nike shoe that fits lower and wider.
You really can do anything with technology these days. You think Bill Russell underwent a foot and sneaker analysis when he tweaked a muscle or sprained his ankle back in the day? If it works, I guess it’s worth it. It just seems a little over the top to me. Maybe I’m old fashioned even though I’m 23. Does that make sense?
