Kent Bazemore is one of the more colorful characters in the NBA. His wandering career took him from CIT success at mid-major Old Dominion, to going undrafted in 2012, to landing a last-minute contract with the Golden State Warriors days before boarding a plane to play professionally in Ukraine. Early in his NBA career, he was primarily known for his wild bench celebrations with the Warriors and his interview-bombing antics, dubbed the Baze Gaze. But he recently became a reliable scoring option in the last few seasons, and one of an increasing number of mid-major stars finding success in the league.
On the shoe front, Kent Bazemore is perhaps most known for helping lure Stephen Curry to Under Armour, a brand that supposedly signed Bazemore in the hopes of also poaching one of his star Warriors teammates. He now wears the Curry 8s in honor of his friend and former teammate.
