Stephen Curry wasn’t selected to play in the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, but that doesn’t mean his competitive fire has diminished.

In a video that was shared on Twitter on Sunday, Curry and his wife were shown cheering against Team LeBron, particularly when the officials were reviewing a call in the fourth quarter.

“Review it,” Curry yelled in excitement. “It’s not goaltending!”

Giannis Antetokounmpo was whistled for goaltending when James drove to the lane for a layup that put Team LeBron ahead 156-153.

The call was eventually reversed after review, and the score reverted back to 154-153.

Curry’s reason for rooting against James may have been a result of their four-year rivalry from 2015 to 2018, when their teams battled one another in the Finals. James was playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers at the time.

A six-time All-Star with the Golden State Warriors, Curry has missed all but four games this season due to a broken left hand that he suffered early this season.

James had the last laugh in the recent All-Star Game, however, as Team LeBron defeated Team Giannis 157-155 in a thrilling game that was played at Chicago’s United Center.

Playing in his second season for the Los Angeles Lakers since signing with the team in the summer of 2018, James was instrumental in his team’s victory in the All-Star Game on Sunday. He finished with 23 points, five rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks.
