The Golden State Warriors are all over the All-Star game voting returns. Steph Curry and Kevin Durant are 1-2 in the west, with both Klay Thompson and Draymond Green also in the top-seven. Right now, Curry leads KD by just over 43,000 votes. But if Durant leap-frogs him between now and the final voting, he’s not interested in picking the team.
“I don’t want to do it. I’d rather somebody else do it. It’s cool to be an All-Star, but all the extra stuff … I just want to go play in the game. [The new format]’s cool, a different way, a creative way that’s good for the fans. But me, I’ll let somebody else pick the teams.”
Fortunately for Durant, Curry would be on board with picking if it came to that.
“Why not? I’ll be the first to usher in the new system. I used to go to the playground all the time and you wanted to be the guy picking teams. That meant you were something on the court back in the day. It’ll be a cool vibe to see how it all shakes out and how unique you can make the lineups.”
In the meantime, the Warriors currently hold the best record in the NBA (33-9). Therefore, it’s no surprise that Golden State is all over the voting returns.
