Lebron James – The King heaped praise on Steph Curry after his incredible performance in the All-Star game. Steph scored 50 points to lead Team LeBron to victory and made an All-Star record 16 three-pointers in the game. Steph ended up winning the first-ever Kobe Bryant All-Star MVP trophy.
When asked about Steph’s performance, LeBron told reporters, “Steph, c’mon man, this guy is from a different planet. He literally has an automatic sniper connected to his arm, and when he lets it go, not only himself but everyone on the floor, in the stands, on TV, on their phones, think it’s going in every time. And nine times out of 10, sometimes 10 times out of 10 it does go in. So to be out there and watch that kid from Akron as well shoot the ball the way he shot it, it was unbelievable, it was pretty cool.”
LeBron and Steph played their first All-Star game last season. The 2 managed to come together once again and won as well. What makes it even more special is the fact that both LeBron and Steph were born in the same hospital in Ohio and Steph went on to win the All-Star MVP while LeBron hit the game-winning shot in Cleveland.
The 2 players have battled it out for 5 straight years where they have met in the finals 4 straight times. t the time everyone in the world knew what the Finals matchup was. In fact, Steph and the Warriors are the major reason LeBron only has 4 championships. They beat him in the 2014-2015 season and then formed a super team to beat him in 2 back to back finals series’.
While LeBron only won 1 out of the 4 finals series’, he did it by making the greatest comeback in NBA history. The Cleveland Cavaliers were down 3-1 in the series and the Warriors just needed to win 1 game. No team had ever come back from 3-1 down in the Finals to win a championship. Well, LeBron made history and the Cavaliers became the first team to do so in NBA history.
In the end, it was great to see the 2 players come together and do something memorable at the All-Star game. Both of them are a part of the Top 75 players’ list and put on a show in the city they were born in. When it comes to the season, the Warriors look ready to make a run for the championship once again while the Lakers’ seem to be in a bad spot with Anthony Davis injured. But who knows, maybe we will be able to see a LeBron vs Curry matchup in the conference Finals this time.
