Stephen Curry ‘hates’ when people say LeBron James has no help
Contrary to popular belief, Stephen Curry thinks that the Cleveland Cavaliers’ NBA Finals berth this season was more than a one-man effort.
Speaking with reporters on Monday before Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, the Golden State Warriors star responded to the notion that LeBron James had no help in bringing the Cavs to the Eastern Conference title.
“I hate when people say that,” he said, per 95.7 The Game in San Francisco. “They’re NBA players, and yeah they’re new and whatnot, and Bron’s amazing, he played an unbelievable playoff run to date and just willed his team to his eighth straight Finals. It’s unbelievable to think about the consistency and longevity and the level of greatness he has shown in the Eastern Conference.
“Shoutout to him, it was an amazing performance, but don’t disrespect the other guys out there,” Curry added. “They fought hard too.”
True, basketball is a team sport, and James still needed big performances from the likes of Jeff Green and JR Smith to topple the Celtics in a Game 7 on the road. But arguably no superstar has ever done more with less (as many would agree), so the answer here probably lies somewhere in between.
