Curry disclosed how the Warriors group chat congratulated Andrew Wiggins but neglected to congratulate Curry for his All-Star selection. He also mentioned that his wife, Ayesha Curry, was the one first person to congratulate him for his selection. Curry spoke to reporters in a post-game conference and explained how Draymond Green eventually remembered to congratulate him after a 30-minute gap.

Curry said, “When I woke up, my wife had texted me. And then our group text was going crazy, celebrating Wiggs. His first one, so it was pretty special. Good energy coming into the game tonight and obviously for him an amazing accomplishment. And they were all just crazy excited for him.”

He further added, “I think there was like a 30-minute delay before Draymond realized he has to say congratulations to me. Then I got like a little half. I think I got like a quick slide on the pre-game edit and they had a whole highlight reel for Wiggs. And then a little splash page came on at the end like, ‘Oh yeah, congrats, Steph’.”

Andrew Wiggins started his NBA career in 2014 with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The 26-year-old joined Curry at the Warriors in 2020. An NBA Rookie of the Year in 2015, he has received his career’s first NBA All-Star call-up this season.

Stephen Curry and his 2014-15 MVP season

When Stephen Curry made his first All-Star appearance in February 2014, he became the Warriors’ first All-Star starter since Latrell Sprewell in 1995. With the arrival of Steve Kerr as head of the Warriors prior to the start of the 2014–15 season, Curry hit new heights as Kerr granted him more autonomy to shoot. A February 2015 game witnessed Curry score 51 points against the Dallas Mavericks.

Curry received the most votes for the NBA All-Star team that season. He helped the Warriors win 67 games throughout the year with the NBA naming him the MVP. To top it all off, Curry guided the Warriors to their 2015 NBA title victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
