Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors are absolutely flying right now.
With the Warriors looking for back-to-back NBA Championships and Curry seemingly certain to claim his second Most Valuable Player award in a row, the Warriors have never been bigger or more popular than they are right now.

According to a report from Quartz, an analyst at financial firm Morgan Stanley says Curry is currently selling more sneakers in the U.S. than the Cleveland Cavaliers star and every other active player.
The only person selling more shoes than Curry? His Airness, Michael Jordan.
"UA's signature Stephen Curry basketball shoe U.S. business is already bigger than LeBron, Kobe and every other player except Michael Jordan,” Morgan Stanley said.
According to Morgan Stanley's data, Curry's sneaker sales have seen an immense surge in the last two months, bringing his projected 2016 sneaker sales to $160M. LeBron is slated to fall just shy with $150M, followed by Kobe Bryant rounds out the group a long way back with an estimated $18M in sales.
LeBron, on the other hand, is slated to fall just shy with $150M, followed by Kobe Bryant rounds out the group a long way back with an estimated $18M in sales.
As long as Curry keeps up his impressive form and stakes his claim as the game's best player, his sales will only continue to grow. While it's incredibly unlikely he will ever match Jordan, the sky is the limit for the Warriors point guard and his Under Armour shoe.
