Curry to auction 'Bruce Lee shoes' for families of Atlanta shooting victims

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will auction a pair of custom game-worn shoes featuring a picture of martial arts icon Bruce Lee to raise money for the families of last month's Atlanta-area shootings victims.

Curry showed solidarity with the Asian community by wearing a customized pair of his Under Armour Curry 8’s in the Warriors’ 117-111 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, April 4 (Monday, April 5, Manila time). 

The two-time league MVP Curry worked with the Bruce Lee Foundation and Kreative Custom Kicks to create the hand-painted, yellow, black, and white sneakers, which features the iconic martial artist Lee and his quote: “Under the heavens, there is but one family.”

"I think Stephen's gesture is a beautiful example of allyship and solidarity in action," Shannon Lee, the daughter of the martial arts legend and chairperson of the board of directors for the Bruce Lee Foundation, tweeted.

"I am honored he would choose my father and my family as the symbol for the idea that we are all one family, as my father said, and therefore must all stand for one another."

All proceeds of the auction will be directed to the families of the victims in the tragic Atlanta-area spa shootings last March, which left 8 people dead, including 6 women of Asian descent.

Following the loss, Curry told reporters that the pair of sneakers he wore during the game is a "very small way" to hopefully raise awareness on the recent spike of hate crimes against Asian-Americans.

“Obviously, stopping Asian hate across the country is huge, and across this world,” said Curry, who finished the game with 37 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists.

“The shoes are a very small way to hopefully raise money for that work and that cause, and raise awareness,” he added.

The Santa Cruz Warriors' Jeremy Lin, who has become the forefront of the NBA's battle against Asian Hate Crime, heaped praises for Curry's move.
