The Golden State Warriors are set to host All-Star Weekend in 2025, marking 25 years since their only previous occasion in 2000. Reported by The Athletic’s Shams Charania on Thursday, it will be the first time the event will be held in San Francisco and the recently built Chase Center.
The Warriors are in a far different position than in 2000, with the fanbase unable to celebrate any home All-Stars during that weekend. In fact, the franchise went 16 years without an All-Star game appearance between Latrell Sprewell in 1997 and David Lee in 2013.
With the NBA set to descend on the Golden State Warriors and Chase Center at 2025 All-Star Weekend, it could provide the perfect opportunity to celebrate Stephen Curry.
Now, Golden State are in the back-end of a dominant dynasty, having won four NBA championships across the past nine seasons. While it’s questionable whether franchise greats like Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will do enough to be All-Stars in 2025, fans can presume that Stephen Curry will be representing the Warriors on their home floor.
Curry will likely be a month away from his 37th birthday when the event takes place. While the two-time MVP could play close to, or into his forties, that particular weekend may provide Warrior fans one of the final opportunities for them to celebrate the franchise’s all-time greatest player with the eyes of the NBA world fully fixed upon them.
Curry has made an All-Star game appearance in nine of the last ten seasons, with his only absence coming in 2020 when a broken hand limited him to just five games in the covid-affected season.
What better way to celebrate the four-time NBA champion than with his second All-Star Game MVP? The home crowd will certainly be eager to see a repeat of 2022 when Curry drained 16 threes and dropped 50 points for Team LeBron in Cleveland.
Curry and fellow splash brother Klay Thompson could already have their sights set on winning the NBA’s Three-Point Contest in front of their home fans on that weekend. Curry is a two-time winner in 2015 and 2021, while Thompson won it in 2016.
The 2025 All-Star Weekend presents as the perfect timing to further celebrate Curry’s career, particularly given he could still be regarded as a top 10 player in the game by the time the event rolls around.
