Stephen Curry Claims Social Media Made Him Worry More About His ‘Tunnel Walk’ Looks Before Games

For Stephen Curry, the opportunity for players to express themselves sartorially during the pre-game “tunnel walk” has changed in recent years to include a chance to support Black designers.

“People see us for more than simply the two hours that we spend on the court. When you get off the bus or out of the car four hours before the game and enter the arena, there are cameras all over the place,” Curry, 36, tells PEOPLE.

“It’s that moment of he’s arriving for work, he’s ready for business,” the Golden State Warriors star adds. “What you have on is just demonstrating the energy and the type of time you’re on.”

Curry just revealed his collaboration with Rakuten and the Black In Fashion Council (BIFC) to develop a platform that increases Black designers’ visibility and aids in their economic growth.

While he acknowledges that “social media obviously helps” and that the tunnel walk “was never really a thing” throughout “the league’s history,” Curry stresses that the concept’s importance has grown significantly in recent years. “It’s evolved dramatically over time,” he claims.”And I believe that over time, you will see a wide variety of outfits from each player, ranging from a simple sweatsuit to a designer piece and everything in between. Here’s the who’s who, the guys who have done some wild things and taken some outrageous chances. But it’s just enjoyable for me. All those eyes are focused on you.”
