Stephen Curry is now clarifying his original comments about LeBron’s request to play with him one day.
In a snippet of HBO’s The Shop: Uninterrupted last week, LeBron James said that the player he’d most want to play with in today’s game was Stephen Curry. When the all-time three-point leader was asked about his comments, he laughed and said, “I’m good right now.”
During an episode of The Draymond Green Show, his teammate asked him to go into more detail about the prospect of playing with James.
“Obviously there’s like a curiosity like, ‘What would that look like?’” Curry said. “But also, there’s a realism of like—that’s why I said ‘I’m good right now.’ You can never let your mind go from what you know is your situation, what is your moment, your time and who I been rocking with from day one.”
LeBron and Curry have been on opposite sides for most of their careers, playing against each other in 4 consecutive NBA Finals between 2014 to 2018.
“Okay, if you take a fantasy draft and like building a team and you have what Bron can do and the way I can shoot the ball like obviously there is a curiosity, what would that look like? But also there is realism, that is why I said, I’m good right now. But if this was 2K, that be pretty legal.”
Seeing LeBron James and Stephen Curry on the same team would be a dream for many NBA fans, but it would also garner a ton of hate, which LeBron already has enough of at this point in his career.
Curry has played his entire career with the Warriors, and shows no signs of ever changing that. James is currently signed to the Lakers for at least another season with the possibility of signing an extension this summer.
