Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been named a reserve for the 73rd National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Game, making his 10th appearance in the event.

Curry has an average of 27.5 points, 5.0 assists, and 4.3 rebounds in 41 games this season. He was named the Week 2 Western Conference Player of the Week and leads the NBA in three-point field goals made and free throw percentage.

Curry, who missed last year's game due to injury, has been a part of NBA All-Star Weekend festivities in 11 of the previous 12 campaigns.

He has averaged 22.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.4 steals, and 28.2 minutes in his eight appearances.

In 2022, he was named the 2022 All-Star Game Most Valuable Player after scoring a career-high 50 points, including 16 three-point field goals, in 36 minutes during Team LeBron's 163-160 victory over Team Durant.

He has previously participated in the Three-Point Contest seven times (2010, 2013-16, 2019, 2021) — winning the event in 2015 and 2021—in addition to the Shooting Stars Competition (2014 and 2015), the Rising Stars Challenge (2010 and 2011) and the Skills Challenge (won the event in 2011).

The 73rd NBA All-Star Game will take place on Sunday, February 18 at 5pm Pacific Standard Time at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, featuring the return of the classic format of the Eastern Conference versus the Western Conference.
