Stephen Curry admits he'll pick Warriors teammates if chosen as All-Star captain

Some would consider the Golden State Warriors an All-Star team already, but Steph Curry wants to see if he can assemble an actual team of his Warriors teammates and go up against the rest of the NBA's best stars head-to-head. Eight marquee players-who have combined for forty-five total all-star selections-switch homes, the very landscape of the league changing in the shadow of the growing juggernaut in the Bay Area. If that rule were in place previous year, Curry and LeBron James would have served as team captains.

"Probably one of my teammates", he said. And it would seem to be only fitting to have a player from the Cavs and Warriors serve as the team captains, so a Team Curry vs. Team LeBron could be in the fold (and if not, then Team Durant vs. Team LeBron seems likely).

"I don't know", he replied with a smile. "He's got a great feel for the game, and he sees it. We had to do something", James said last week.

The All-Star Game has lost its appeal in recent years as players have chosen not to take it seriously and is short on intensity. Trying to switch it up. You can't be that good without ego.

"At the end of the day, it's hard as hell to win a championship", says Green.

Curry, Thompson and Green are all tied to long-term deals, with Durant taking less money to keep the team together, allowing the Warriors to re-sign important pieces such as Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Javale McGee.

But Curry doesn't believe that will be the case with him.

"What the fuck are you talking about?" he says to me. Many Western Conference teams are stockpiling talent in hopes of toppling the Dubs, and the majority of the Eastern Conference has just given up, because let's face it, GSW are a 99.99999% chance to make the NBA Finals for a 4th consecutive year this upcoming season. "It's fun. It's a different type of setup and a different look, especially on the court".

"From a fan standpoint, I know that should be a huge storyline just to see who's playing with who and even like what they name the teams, the jerseys, the whole setup is going to be a different look, so it's going to be fun".
