Four-time MVP LeBron James made some interesting comments earlier this week after Steph Curry was named the unanimous MVP which many felt was a shot at the Warriors guard.
I think sometimes the word ‘valuable’ or best player of the year, you can have different results,” said James, a four-time MVP. ”You know, that’s not taking anything from anyone that’s ever won the award.”’
”Look at Steph’s numbers,” ”He averaged 30, he led the league in steals, he was 90-50-40 (shooting percentages from the free-throw line, field and 3-pointers), and they won 73 (games). So, I don’t, do you have any debate over that, really, when it comes to that award? But when you talk about most ‘valuable’ then you can have a different conversation, so, take nothing away from him, he’s definitely deserving of that award, for sure.”
Last night, Curry responded to LeBron’s comments.
“I’ve gotten really good at ignoring people … that is the theme of the last two years. I’m all right.”
Curry might act like he’s ignoring LeBron but it seems like the he and the Warriors have been fueled all season by all the haters who have questioned the Warriors and their style of play.
