Steph Curry shouts out BTS star Suga for repping Warriors jersey




 

Steph shouts out BTS star Suga for repping Warriors jersey originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Warriors and K-pop group BTS have two of the world's most passionate fanbases.

And on Tuesday, their powers collided with a wholesome Twitter post by Golden State star Steph Curry acknowledging the Korean boy band's lead rapper, Suga.

As the Warriors prepare for their preseason games against the Washington Wizards later this week in Japan, TMZ Sports reported there have been whispers of Suga, whose real name is Min Yoon-gi, possibly attending the contest.

Curry's enthusiastic "see you soon" might be a clue.

The K-pop phenomenon is a known basketball fan and has been seen at NBA games in the past. In a 2021 interview with Vogue Korea, he revealed his favorite team is the Portland Trail Blazers, and his favorite player is Damian Lillard.

It appears as if Lillard might have some competition in that category now, as Suga's personalized Warriors jersey could signify the latest K-pop star to join the ranks of Dub Nation.

Singer BamBam became the team's newest global ambassador last season, and Golden State Entertainment, a Warriors affiliate company specializing in original storytelling, released BamBam's single called "Wheels Up" in April.

It's evident there's a mutual respect between the Warriors and some of K-pop's most talented stars.
