Steph Curry vs LeBron James has been the Finals rivalry that has dominated the headlines over recent years, but with the Los Angeles Lakers out of playoff contention, the post-season will have a very different look for the first time since 2005 without James.
LeBron missed LA Lakers’ 90-108 defeat to Golden State Warriors on Friday.
“It’s different, but what is it? (Eight) straight Finals he went to? I’m sure it’s a different experience for him, for better or worse,” Curry said, (via ca.nba)
“Obviously the rest of the league continues to go, a lot of talent, a lot of great storylines, people chasing championships,” Curry added. “But he’s had an amazing run. Pretty sure he’ll be able to reset for next year and regroup. It’s just different [with James not in the playoffs]”
Currently Warriors are leading the Western Conference table with 55 wins and 24 defeats, while LA Lakers are 11th with 36 wins and 44 defeats.
