Stephen Curry’s NBA All-Star Game Selections Got Mocked Hard By Twitter

For one evening at least, Stephen Curry felt the pain of being an NBA general manager.

Curry and LeBron James, the Eastern and Western Conference’s two biggest vote-getters for the All-Star Game on February 18, picked their rosters on Thursday evening.

And Curry’s got trolled by the internet, hard.

“Lebron really drafted KD & Russ on the same team. And took Kyrie, while he stole AD/Boogie. I don’t know if Lebron is the best GM, or Curry was looking at Ayesha’s toes during the draft,” one Lakers Twitter account commented.



James took the New Orleans’ Pelicans starting frontcourt in Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. James picked Kevin Durant first overall and chose Kyrie Irving, who split from the Cavaliers last summer, as his starting point guard. Curry will start James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, DeMar DeRozan and Joel Embiid alongside himself.

Twitter doesn’t give Team Curry much of a chance, though, despite the presence of the NBA’s two leading scorers in Harden and Antetokounmpo.



Perhaps it’s the benches that convinced Twitter that Team Curry doesn’t have much of a hope. While James can call on Russell Westbrook and John Wall as his reserve guards, Curry picked the less-heralded (but still great) Kyle Lowry and Damian Lillard.

“You see how it feels Steph? To play against a stacked team lmfao…”, one Twitter user wrote in reference to the Golden State Warriors’ superteam.

Curry has two Warriors on his squad in Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. LeBron’s pick of Durant will mean an intriguing reunion between the Warriors superstar and Westbrook, the man he left behind in Oklahoma City.

Westbrook took a shot at Durant earlier this week, according to The Big Lead, when he described teammate Paul George’s omission from the All-Star Game as “outrageous.” “Top 2 at his position,” Westbrook said of George, who has mostly been playing at small forward like James and Durant this season.
