SAN FRANCISCO (BVM) – The Golden State Warriors continue to spread love for their team to the far reaches of the globe. In a post to his millions of fans on Instagram, Korean rapper SUGA, a member of the famous K-Pop group BTS, showed off his new customized Warriors jersey, showing his allegiance with the California-based NBA squad.

The Warriors were quick to celebrate the news as well.

While it remains to be seen if there will be a collaboration between the two entities, fans have begun to speculate if SUGA will be in attendance at one of the Warriors’ two preseason games in Japan on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 as the singer has made his way to the country in recent days. Warriors point guard Stephen Curry didn’t do anything to quell the rumors in a tweet to the BTS member.

Though the news may have come as a surprise to ARMY, the BTS fan group, K-Pop artists being fans of the West Coast squad is nothing new. NCT Dream members Chenle and Mark have shown their love for the Warriors in the past, even streaming into one of the team’s bubble games during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chenle may be the bigger fan of the two, showing off his love for Curry multiple times. Curry even went as far as to invite the K-Pop singer to a game following the COVID-19 pandemic. The star point guard would go even further in 2021 when he and the team sent Chenle a jersey to help him support the team.

In response, Chele would help the team come up with his own Dub Nation playlist for fans to enjoy during the rest of the season.

Perhaps the most well-known K-Pop superstar and Warriors fan is Got7 member BamBam. Not only did BamBam use his support from his social media followers to help Warriors’ guard Andrew Wiggins earn a spot in his first All-Star game, but he also debuted his single “Wheels Up” in the Chase Center and did a collaboration with the team’s merchandise shop.

All of this outpouring of support also earned BamBam the honor of being named the team’s global ambassador during the 2022 NBA season.

As the defending NBA champions prepare to defend their titles this season, it is clear they will have plenty of support from the K-Pop community, both fans and artists. Given their success in recent years, this will only be another feather in the cap for the historic franchise.
