You may recall that GOT7‘s BamBam revealed himself to be a diehard Golden State Warriors fan on Christmas Day.
BamBam showed his support for one of his own idols, Stephen Curry (also known as Steph), a professional point guard for the Golden State Warriors of the NBA(the National Basketball Association). He encouraged his followers to vote for Steph in the upcoming 2022 NBA All-Star Game (the 71st NBA All–Star Game).

While the 2022 NBA All-Star Game will occur in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, on Sunday, February 20, 2022, voting began on December 25, and BamBam tweeted about it immediately as voting began!
The NBA hosts an annual All-Star Game in February. This is the main event of the NBA All-Star Weekend, a three-day event that spans Friday to Sunday. The exhibition features 24 of the league’s star players selected by fans votes. So, like we vote for our favorite K-Pop groups and idols during awards season, basketball fans do the same, as you can vote on the official website or even just by tweeting.
The feelings were definitely mutual between the Warriors and BamBam too. Shortly after BamBam’s tweet, the official team account quote-tweeted the rapper!

The love doesn’t end there either. It seems that BamBam’s got his wish as Steph is ranking very high in the All-Star voting.
And, the Warriors recognize BamBam’s hard work, efforts, and true team spirit. So, he has officially now been appointed as the Golden State Warriors’ Global Ambassador.
Early January 8 morning (KST), BamBam made the exciting announcement on his socials. Who can sleep after this news after all?
He shared photos of himself rocking a personalized Golden State Warriors jersey, containing his name on the back along with his birth year “97.” Also, BamBam promised to engage with the team throughout the 2022 season, supporting the players.
Surprise! Look at my shirt~~
I am very honored to be named as the Golden State Warriors’ Global Ambassador.
This is super exciting!! I will do my best engaging with GSW and all the fans throughout the season in 2022.
Please keep showing our support to the greatest GSW players! Let’s wait for more surprises!
Additionally, he assured us that there would be more surprises, so look forward to it!
After he posted, the Warriors’ official account reposted to their Instagram Stories (which he then reposted), officially welcoming him to “The Dub Nation.” This refers to the fan base name for the Warriors.
The Warriors showed love for their new Global Ambassador on Twitter too. The team spirit is strong!
