"I promise not to sell my leg on ebay."
If Stephen Curry's basketball career suddenly comes to a halt, he has a standing offer to join the team at Zebra Tattoo & Piercing.
The two-time NBA MVP recently paid a visit to the Cali-based tattoo parlor to dish out some ink, which he applied directly to the calf of his tattoo artist Nino, aka @ZappyZip. The design was simple: Curry's autograph.
Nino took to instagram to share photos and video of the momentous occasion, along with the caption: "Aside from my daughter being born, this is maybe one of those times in my life that my reality superseded my dreams. Thanks @stephencurry30 for the rad tattoo. I promise not to sell my leg on ebay." He added, "if that basketball thing ain’t working out fo you😜, you’re more than welcome to join our team."

If this is the first you've seen of Curry in some time, there's good reason for that. The five-time All-Star has not played since November 8 due to a strained groin and he did not travel on the team's recent Texas road trip. According to the Warriors' press release, he is scheduled to be re-evaluated on Saturday, November 24.
Despite all of the Warriors' issues both on and off the court, Golden State is still sitting at 12-6 for the year, slightly behind the Portland Trail Blazers for first place in the Western Conference.
