Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is having the worst 3-point shooting season of his career, but during Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game in Cleveland, he reminded everyone why he’s the greatest shooter of all time. Suiting up for Team LeBron, Curry was in vintage form, scoring 50 points and knocking down 16 of 27 3-pointers in every way imaginable, setting a new All-Star record in the process.
His thrilling performance in Team LeBron’s 163-160 win over Team Durant earned him the 2022 Kobe Bryant NBA All-Star Game MVP, the first time he’s received the honor in eight career All-Star Games.
“This trophy has a very special meaning, honoring Kobe and Gigi, everybody that was lost two years ago,” Curry said after the game. “I’m very humbled, very blessed and I really appreciate it.”
