Warriors guard Stephen Curry indicated Tuesday in an interview on The Dan Patrick Show that he believes he is the better offensive player compared to Cleveland’s LeBron James.
Asked by Patrick who is the better offensive player, Curry said he had never before been asked the question before answering.
“Me,” Curry said, chuckling. “Gotta be, right?”
Told the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player James is the better scorer and that Curry is the better shooter, Curry said, “I don’t know because he obviously demands a lot attention on the floor, but I like to say I can distribute, get my teammates involved and be a playmaker as well.”
Patrick then asked Curry how he’d answer the question if in a game it’d be a contest of which player could score more points, and again the 6-foot-3 point guard expressed confidence.
“I’d like to say my shot would help me in that situation,” Curry said. “If I get a double-team, I could hopefully shoot from farther out.”
Curry in an apparent response to the attention his comments received tweeted, “That’s funny. Anything is news these days lol.”
