With the new format of team captain’s picking their own squads, players seem to be taking the 2018 NBA All-Star Game more seriously than in previous years. At least that’s how it seemed until the beginning of the second half, when Stephen Curry elected not to start the third quarter, but instead chill on the bench and eat some popcorn.

Some took this as an indication that’s Steph’s night might be over, but it turns out he was just hungry, as he returned to the game later in the quarter.
