When it comes to his favorite NBA player, K-pop star BamBam has good taste.
On Thursday on NBC Sports Bay Area’s Warriors Pregame Live show, Bonta Hill asked Golden State’s newest global ambassador to name his favorite player in the league.
BamBam’s answer probably won’t surprise you.
“Of course I will say [Steph] Curry,” BamBam said. “They’re all good, of course, but then, you know, Curry, he kind of changed the whole game of basketball. So I respect him for that.
The K-pop phenom is in the bay this week in a collaboration with the Warriors, producing some hilarious moments when he met the team on Tuesday and sending fans into a frenzy with a joint merchandise sale at Chase Center. Wednesday.
Thursday marked BamBam’s first ever NBA game, where he will perform at halftime of the Warriors’ game with the Los Angeles Lakers – also a first for the singer. Sadly, however, there was no Curry on the pitch for BamBam on Thursday as he continues to recover from a foot injury.
“It’s a lot for me today, you know what I mean?” BamBam burst out laughing.
While Hill had BamBam in the hot seat, he also asked which team the artist thinks will win the 2022 NBA Finals.
Once again, BamBam stuck with Golden State.

“Of course it’s going to be the Warriors, man,” he said. “Absolutely.”
Only time will tell if BamBam’s prediction comes true as the Warriors prepare for the first round of the playoffs next weekend.
