The 2019 All-Star Game is set to be Stephen Curry's sixth consecutive appearance at the event, all as a starter.

In three of his five previous starts, Curry entered the All-Star Game as the league's leading vote-getter.

In the 2018 All-Star Game, as the leading vote-getter from the West under the new format of the game, he captained Team Stephen against Team LeBron at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. He finished on the losing side in a 145-148 game that went down to the last possession.

In his five games, Curry averages 17.0 points, 6.6 assists, and 5.4 rebounds on 41.0% shooting from the field and 33.9% from beyond the arc.

Ahead of his sixth All-Star appearance, we take a look at some the best moments from his previous All-Star Weekends:

2011 Taco Bell Skills Champion

As a rookie, Stephen Curry participated and advanced to the final round of the 2010 3-point shooting contest but came up 3 points short of the eventual winner - Paul Pierce.

However, a year later, in 2011 at the Staples Center, Curry earned his first All-Star Weekend silverware.

Competing in another Saturday event (the Skills Challenge), Curry beat out Russell Westbrook to win the Skills Challenge.

Double-double on All-Star Game debut

Stat line: 12 points, 11 assists, and 3 rebounds.

Its not too often that players record double-doubles in an All-Star Game, let alone on debut. While his debut appearance in the game might have come relatively late in his career (fifth season), Curry certainly showed up once the game tipped-off.

Note: Not only was he among the few players to debut as a starter, Curry was also the league's leading vote-getter on debut in 2014.

2015 Foot Locker 3-Point Contest Champion

Given his remarkable long-distance shooting, Curry still hadn't won the All-Star 3-point contest, even till his sixth season.

He finally won his first and only 3-point contest in 2015 competing alongside arguably the best line-up in recent times. In the final round, he found his range and was too hot to handle for Kyrie Irving and teammate Klay Thompson.

Half-Court heave at the end in Toronto - 2016

It should come as no surprise that Curry's best All-Star game came in the same year he was named the league's first and only unanimous MVP.

In the 2016 All-Star Game at Toronto, Curry put up 26 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals on an efficient 55.6% shooting from the field and 46.2% from long distance.

After a spectacular and entertaining game, Curry put some icing on it by nailing a half-court shot with just seconds left on the game clock.
