Steph Curry will be teaming up with LeBron James at the 2022 NBA All-Star Game.

The Warriors superstar was drafted third overall by Team LeBron for the second consecutive season. LeBron took Giannis Antetokounmpo first and Kevin Durant drafted Joel Embiid second, before LeBron announced he was taking Curry, “the greatest shooter of all time.”

Curry’s Warriors teammate, Andrew Wiggins, also is an All-Star starter and will play for Team Durant in the All-Star Game. Wiggins and Hawks guard Trae Young were the last two All-Star starters remaining on the board, and both were given to Durant to round out his starting five.

Draymond Green, who was named an All-Star reserve for the fourth time in his career, will not participate in the game due to his back injury and thus was not taken in the draft.

The All-Star Game will take place on Sunday, Feb. 20 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, Ohio.

Last season as teammates with LeBron, Curry put up 28 points, including eight 3-pointers. The two-time NBA MVP averages 18.6 points per game across his seven previous All-Star appearances.

We’ll see what Curry and Wiggins have in store when they take the floor as opponents next week.
