Steph Curry isn’t here for LeBron James‘ shade. Earlier this week, Curry won his second straight Most Valuable Player trophy. And while James was quick to say that Steph was “definitely deserving” of winning the award, he also added his two cents on the true meaning of “valuable” in MVP. “So, I don’t, do you have any debate over that, really, when it comes to that award?” LeBron said. “But when you talk about most ‘valuable’ then you can have a different conversation.”
It was only a matter of time before James’ remark found its way to Curry. But, Steph being Steph, USA Today reports he just shook it off, telling reporters, “I’ve gotten really good at ignoring people…that is the theme of the last two years. I’m all right.”
These last two years have included former NBA greats like Charles Barkley recently calling James and Kawhi Leonard the best players in the NBA today, as well as ex-Bulls players such as Scottie Pippenclaiming that his 1996 team would not only sweep the Golden State Warriors in a best-of-7 series, but that they would hold Curry to under 20 points. Meanwhile, all Steph and the Warriors have done is secure back-to-back MVP trophies, win their first NBA title in 40 years, put up a 73-9 record and appear poised for another Finals appearance with a series victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Let the haters, er, doubters say what they want to say, Curry and the Warriors have repeatedly responded with their play on the court. Why switch up the approach now?
