Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry picked Duke as national champion as part of his NCAA tournament bracket reveal with Campus Insiders on Wednesday.

As seen in the following video, Curry chose the Blue Devils to defeat Kansas in the national title game:

Curry's other Final Four selections were Arizona and UCLA.

The two-time reigning NBA MVP is a former March Madness legend, as he led Davidson to the Elite Eight as a No. 10 seed in 2008. The Wildcats toppled Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin before eventual national champion Kansas knocked them out in the regional finals.

Although Davidson missed out on this year's tourney, the Duke selection is one that is still near and dear to the Curry family. Steph's brother—Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry—spent three seasons with the Blue Devils after transferring from Liberty.

Curry's Duke pick has plenty of merit outside of the family ties, though. The school won four games in four days to take home the ACC tournament title, beating Clemson, Louisville, North Carolina and Notre Dame en route to solidifying a No. 2 seed in March Madness.

If Duke fans didn't already love Curry for backing the Blue Devils, the Charlotte native also predicted Butler will knock off rival UNC in the Sweet 16.
