Steph, BTS star Suga honored to meet in wholesome exchange originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Curry took to social media after the wholesome encounter, welcoming the boy band’s lead rapper, whose real name is Min Yoon-gi, to Dub Nation.
In video of the exchange, it’s clear both superstars shared a mutual respect for one another.
“I’m sweaty, working hard, but very nice to meet you,” Curry told Suga.
“Nice to meet you,” Suga replied.
“Big fan, obviously,” Curry told Suga. “So are my kids and everybody in my family, man. It’s great to meet you.”
“It’s an honor,” Suga said.
The admiration between the pair was palpable as a gaggle of photographers and reporters captured the iconic moment. Combined, Curry and Suga boast over 85 million Instagram followers — just one indication of their impact on the basketball and music scenes.
The meetup between the two global powerhouses was highly anticipated, especially after Curry told Suga “see you soon” on Tuesday when the BTS member shared a photo of himself with a personalized Warriors jersey.
Though Suga is a self-professed Portland Trail Blazers fan, his allegiances could be in jeopardy after hanging out with the Warriors. Curry gifted him a signed No. 30 jersey, and the pair took a selfie together.
And of course, the meeting wouldn’t have been complete without Suga providing Curry with his own signed copy of the latest BTS album, “Proof.”
Looks like we know what the Warriors will listen to during warmups this weekend.
