LeBron James tweets out a message to Steph Curry, exclaiming how happy he felt sharing the floor with him for very first time.
The 2021 NBA All-Star Game brought about several moments that will most definitely go down as iconic ASG moments for years to come. Whether it was Damian Lillard and Steph Curry’s barrage of 3s from half court or Giannis dropping 35 points on 16-16 shooting from the field, the game was as exciting as it could’ve been considering the circumstances.
However, one of the most underrated moments that took place on All-Star Sunday was the unexpected team up between Steph Curry and LeBron James, who took to NBA hardwood playing for the same squad. Their play together was very much anticipated following LeBron James picking the 2x MVP with his second overall pick in the ASG draft.
The two shared a couple joyous moments on and off the court, which LeBron James was very appreciative of following Team LeBron’s win over Team Durant.
