Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has recently revealed that he thinks, Stephen Curry will be this season’s MVP.
The Golden State Warriors star point guard has since caught wind of LeBron’s rather surprising endorsement, and he has come out with an unsurprisingly no-nonsense response.
Curry recognized LeBron’s praise, but quickly shifted his focus to the highly-anticipated play-in matchup between the Warriors and the Lakers on Wednesday:
“I respect him for it and I appreciate it,” Curry said, via Mark Medina of USA Today.
“We all know as competitors, though, when the lights are on, I can talk about how great he is until I’m blue in the face and he can do the same, it doesn’t change how we approach that competition when we’re out there.”
Asked if he thought that LeBron was playing mind games with his MVP remarks, Steph just laughed it off:
“I love no matter if it’s me or him, there’s always another element. I’m appreciative.”
