Steph Curry was mic’d up at the 2019 NBA All-Star Game, and the Golden State Warriors two-time MVP delivered with some exceptional soundbites. The superstar was making his sixth consecutive All-Star Game appearance, and gave fans a little bit of a behind-the-scenes experience by wearing a mic for much of the weekend.
While warming up for the game, Curry hilariously lamented at how exhausted he was after landing a highlight dunk, stating “I need a nap.”
Later, in the game itself, Curry got caught having some funny and endearing moments with his teammate Klay Thompson, who was on the opposing team for the All-Star Game. Curry wanted to defend Klay and, after forcing his fellow Splash Brother into a difficult shot, excitedly praised his own defense.
Curry also had some exceptional moments at Saturday’s All-Star practice. In addition to his comments about James Harden, which he likely didn’t mean to have go public, Curry had a cool moment talking with Milwaukee Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer.
The coach of Team Giannis and the three-time champion point guard talked about the minutes Curry would receive in the game, before shifting their focus to Giannis Antetokounmpo. Both of them pushed for a competitive game, with Bud telling Curry that “if you’re going hard, I can promise you number 34 is going hard too,” a reference to the Greek Freak. Curry then sang the praises of the work ethic of Milwaukee’s young MVP candidate. It pretty neat.
The mic’d up features are always awesome, so hopefully we see more of these from the NBA going forward.
