Former United States President Barack Obama is a fan of both Stephen Curry and LeBron James, who are two of the best athletes in the world right now.
Obama appeared on The Bill Simmons Podcast and discussed all things hoops. He said he knows Curry very well and is in awe of his superior shooting skills. He then offered an interesting observation on the two-time NBA MVP and James:
“These world-class athletes, they’re like X-Men,” Obama said. “Some of them you can tell are like the Hulk. You’re standing next to LeBron, you know he’s a freak. Stand next to Steph, and he’s like one of those guys who has some superpower (where) he takes off his glasses or something. You can’t see right away, but is just as much of a freak.
Obama was also asked whether he thinks that Curry is the greatest shooter of all time, to which he replied:
“That’s not even a question, absolutely. I have not seen anybody who can shoot that way, in as many ways, in as unlikely ways, as consistently as Steph Curry. I know Steph well. Everything he does, it’s precise and neat and tight.”
