The NBA Playoffs are finally upon us and the Warriors are eager to get the ball rolling. Unlike years past, the Warriors enter the postseason as a strong favorite, with the New Orleans Pelicans being the first team standing in their way.
The Warriors are battle tested, and with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson leading the way, they should be able to go deep in the Western Conference playoffs. It’s going to be a grueling journey and the Thompson needs to stay hydrated, which is why he drinks Body Armor.
According to Ron Leuty of the San Francisco Business Times, Thompson was a big fan of Body Armor before he became an official endorser of the product and Body Armor is very happy to have him aboard:
Thompson personifies the BodyArmor brand, said Michael Fedele, vice president of marketing for New York-based BodyArmor, which counts Los Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant as one of its investors. The line of sports drinks, fighting for space in a $10 billion category that includes PepsiCo Inc.’s (NYSE: PEP) Gatorade and The Coca-Cola Co.’s (NYSE: KO) Powerade, was launched in 2012.
“Klay is an amazing talent and coming into his own,” Fedele said.
Thompson actually started drinking BodyArmor’s flavored drinks, which include coconut water, about a year ago at the Warriors’ practice facility in Oakland, he said. BodyArmor officials found out about his use of the product and pursued him for a regional endorsement.
Body Armor has been gaining steam as of late. It all started with Kobe Bryant investing in the company, leading to many other prominent athletes following suit.
Andrew Luck, Buster Posey, Rob Gronkowski and Mike Trout are only a few of the athletes that have made Body Armor their official sports drink.
Not only is Body Armor providing some of the best athletes in the world with this great product, but they are also giving the public a chance to go head-to-head with Klay Thompson in a 3-point shootout.
