FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi is a big fan of Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and plans to send him one of his jerseys, he announced on Instagram.
As Curry comes off of one of the most dominant regular seasons in NBA history, he has become arguably the most popular player in the league. He currently has the best-selling jersey in the NBA.
Apparently, Curry’s popularity has reached overseas, and the top soccer player in the world has taken notice.
Hello "Maestro" @stephencurry30, well as I told you, here I’m sending you my jersey with the number 10. It’s an honour that you have my jersey and it’s a pleasure to see you playing. I hope to see you playing for a many more years and I wish you all the success. Big hug! Hola @stephencurry30, como te prometí, acá te mando mi camiseta para celebrar tus 10 millones de seguidores en Instagram. ¡Un abrazo y muchos éxitos!
The Warriors currently hold a 2–1 lead over the Houston Rockets in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
