Interview With Kemba Walker, Under Armour Exec
| July 06, 2011 | 12:28 PM EDT

Yesterday, we broke the story that Under Armour had signed a multi-year deal with NBA Draft pick Kemba Walker .

Today, we sat down with Walker and Matt Mirchin, Under Armour's senior vice president of sports marketing , to talk about the deal.

Darren: Why did you go to Under Armour?

Kemba: I think they offered me more than anyone else did. They gave a great presentation to me.

Darren: When did Under Armour become cool in your circle?

Kemba: I actually just found out about Under Armour last year. A lot of people, especially females, were wearing it on campus.

Darren: What do you know about the NBA lockout?

Kemba: I don't know much. I'm just waiting for them to tell me when the season starts.

Darren: What has Under Armour told you about marketing you during the lockout?

Kemba: They said I would still be in ads, which is good, since I'm not sure other shoe companies are doing that.

Darren: The owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, who you will now play for, is Michael Jordan. You think he's mad that you didn't sign with Jordan?

Kemba: Nah, I think we're good.
