Le’Veon Bell Says He Is ‘Changing The Game’: ‘I’m What Steph Curry Is To Basketball’

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is not your prototypical running back, as he doesn’t ‘hit the hole’ like others do.
Watch every other back in the league and they all display a common characteristic: as soon as they’re handed the ball, they explode into the holes created by their blockers. Not Bell. Watch him on a hand-off, and he waits…waits…waits….and then he explodes into the hole as more openings are developed.
His unique style of running has been quite successful for him, and it separates him from every other back in the league. For that reason, Bell believes he is truly changing the game.
“I think I’m changing the game,” Bell told Bleacher Report‘s Tyler Dunne. “In that sense, I’m what Steph Curry is to basketball. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t necessarily think Steph Curry is the best basketball player, but he changed the game so he’s going to always go down as being remembered. Now, everyone wants to shoot the three and shoot it from deep.”
Much like Curry, Bell has his sights set on winning a championship.
“I play this game to win Super Bowls and be a Hall of Famer,” Bell said. “I want to be remembered as, if not the best, then one of the best players ever. Not just running backs - players. I don’t want to be a guy who’s just known as a running back. I want to be a guy who’s known for all situations.”
