Golden State Warriors had endured quite a tough season last term with the injuries to All-Star guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Curry, who suffered a hand injury that required surgery, was limited to just five games last season.
And LeBron James with the Los Angeles Lakers won the franchise’s first NBA title in a decade. Curry and LeBron James memorably met in the Finals for four straight years from 2015-2018 back when he was still with the Cleveland Cavaliers, with the Warriors winning three of their matchups.
Speaking with Zach Frydenlund of Complex regarding the launch of his own Curry Brand with Under Armour, the 32-year old guard had high praise for James, now a four-time champion, but said that he isn’t too focused on their personal rivalry, as they have the rest of the league to worry about.
“But I think at the end of the day, if you get caught up in that, you’re already at a disadvantage just because there’s so many other teams and other players at the top,” said Curry, “And what Bron did in the Finals, or in the bubble season this year, and what he continues to do every year—it’s truly remarkable and unbelievable. I love that competition.
“I want to be in that conversation every year, no matter who it is. Forever, it’s going to be hard to get rid of the four year back and forth between the Warriors and Cleveland, but we’re moving on.”
