Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry and Los Angeles Lakers forward LaMarcus Aldridge have joined the list of players who are now represented by their respective teams titles.
According to ESPN Stats & Info, Warriors guard Klay Thompson was the first player to be represented by his own team, with the Golden State Warrior being represented by the Warriors’ home team, the Warriors, in the 2017-18 season.
This year’s Warriors roster features four players who have joined Warriors teams, including Aldridge, Thompson, forward Andrew Bogut, and forward Harrison Barnes.
Curry joins Thompson, Aldridge and Bogut as Warriors players who also belong to teams whose titles they’ve played for.
The Warriors also have several other players that are also members of the Warriors.
Warriors center Zaza Pachulia is also a member of the team, as is forward Andre Iguodala, who has been playing for the Warriors since the 2016-17 season.
The NBA has recently made it easier for players to be given their own team’s name, as a team with the same name will now be given the team’s team name.
This also allows for players like Aldridge to get his own name in the future.
