The Golden State Warriors may have the best record in basketball, but they'll only have one starter in next month's NBA All-Star Game in Toronto.


On Thursday afternoon, the league announced that Steph Curry will start for the Western Conference, and not Draymond Green as many expected.

It will be Steph's third straight All-Star appearance, all three as a starter.

Curry is enjoying arguably his best season, averaging 30 points a game, by far a career high.

As for Green, he lost out to Kawhi Leonard in the fan voting, and it's a shame. The 25-year-old is the heart and soul of the Dubs and a great defender who leads all NBA forwards in assists while averaging 14.5 points and 9.5 rebounds a game.
