Toni Kroos’ Love for Stephen Curry Resurfaces as Real Madrid Legend Announces Retirement

A Curry fan recently shared a compilation of Toni Kroos’ past tweets, showcasing his admiration for the Warriors superstar. In one instance, when asked about his favorite NBA player, the German midfielder quickly chose Curry over LeBron James. In a 2021 tweet, Kroos proclaimed Curry, a four-time NBA Champion, as the best player in the league. “Steph Curry still number one,” Kroos tweeted on X just last year.

Unfortunately, Stephen Curry and the Warriors did not qualify for the Playoffs this season. Despite this, Toni Kroos likely continues to support his favorite player, who, like him, is nearing retirement.

Meanwhile, former Real Madrid player Luka Doncic has made a significant impact in the NBA with his skills and talent. Doncic, who played for Real Madrid in the Euro League before being drafted into the NBA, recently led his team to the Conference Finals. Kroos might be supporting Doncic this postseason as Curry’s Golden State Warriors prepare for the 2024-25 season.

Toni Kroos is backing the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Playoffs. The Mavericks advanced past the first-seeded OKC Thunder, defeating them 4-2 in the second round of their playoff series. Key players like Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving were instrumental in securing the Mavs’ second Western Conference Finals appearance in three years.


Throughout the series, Kroos showed his support for the Mavs, which was evident from his tweet following the team’s Game 5 victory against OKC.

The German midfielder has consistently shown a strong fondness for Luka Doncic. Just last year, Kroos marked his 33rd birthday with a cake adorned with the jersey of the Mavericks superstar and commemorating his historic 60-21-10 stat line. It’s evident that Kroos would be wholeheartedly supporting the Slovenian phenom as the Mavericks strive for a historic championship run, hoping to witness Doncic secure his first NBA championship ring.
