Why Steph is not taking latest All-Star nod for granted


Steph Curry again was named an NBA All-Star Game starter for the 2022-23 season. Additionally, the 34-year-old passed Hall of Famer Rick Barry for the second-most in Warriors franchise history. 

After the Warriors' 129-117 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night at Chase Center, Curry reflected on becoming a nine-time All-Star, an honor in which he appreciates. 

"I appreciate everybody that voted. First and foremost, it's been an amazing run," Curry told reporters. "Being able to represent the team at the All-Star Game, it's something you never, ever take for granted. Obviously, as a starter or reserve, no matter how you get there, you want to be recognized in that respect. 

"So I appreciate everybody that voted and just the honor to keep doing it this many years; it's been awesome. So hopefully, there's more in the future, but I'm going to enjoy it and represent all Dub Nation out there, my teammates and everybody that's been a part of that journey."

Furthermore, Curry echoed Draymond Green's sentiment about the honor, which, while expected for players like Curry, still should be appreciated. 

"Draymond said some amazing-worst pregame [remarks] that spoke to how you never take it for granted," Curry continued. "And it's really hard to do every single year. It becomes expected when you got [LeBron James] who's done it 19 years straight. Like, it's wild to think about the level that you have to be at to do that every year. So nine out of 14 years, I'm I'm definitely appreciative."
