After getting kicked in his injured shin three of the last four games, reigning-MVP Stephen Curry is taking a different approach to protect himself.

Yup, shin guards. As in, those things you haven't worn since you were playing youth soccer. As Ethan Sherwood Strauss reported, Steph is taking no chances, saying he'll just have to "bring out [his] inner Messi," while on the court in his new gear.

Here's a picture.

Looking nice Steph! Let's hope it helps and that he doesn't re-aggravate anything tonight!
