It’s no secret that stars get a different degree of preferential treatment by the NBA. Guys like LeBron James and Kevin Durant get the absolute best and are given almost ultimate control while smaller names like Pascal Siakam and DeMar DeRozan get the short end of the stick (relatively speaking, of course).
That reality was witnessed first-hand during this year’s All-Star game, as fans noted the difference in locker size between Steph Curry and Indiana’s Domantas Sabonis.
Funnily enough, it appears as though Denver’s Nikola Jokic got a medium-sized one, somewhere in between Curry’s and Sabonis’.
Among a busy night full of highlights, plays, and all kinds of talking points, the great “locker room” scandal of 2021 become one of the funniest moments of the day, and it’s clear people had a lot of fun making fun of it.
Seriously, though, all stars are not equal in the NBA. Some have more power and get more perks than others — that’s just the way it goes.
When you’re a guy like Steph Curry, who has literally revolutionized the game (and made himself one of the biggest draws in pro sports), it’s hard to say you haven’t earned it.
