In case you missed it, the final results of the All-Star game voting saw Steph Curry and LeBron James getting the most votes. As the leading vote getters, both LeBron and Curry will get to pick who plays for their team, thanks to the revamped format.
Granted, everyone knows Steph would likely pick all of his teammates first, as any smart NBA superstar would do. But as far as who he’d pick after that is up in the air, or, at least, it was.
When asked about any particular name he might choose come February, Curry admitted to likely picking Giannis Antetokounmpo. While that is probably not shocking news, the reasoning behind it will at least put a smile on your face.
Here’s why he’d pick the Greek Freak, according to Curry himself: “He dunked on me last year. May have to get him on my team so that doesn’t happen again”
Is there a random guy beyond LeBron or your teammates you'd like to have on your team?
