LeBron James used to go out of his way to watch Stephen Curry play. And like he does now, Curry put on a show.
“I just kind of read upon his story from Day 1 how under-recruited he was,” James told reporters.
“I just thought he was special. I thought he was a special kid. I’m very good at noticing talent, and I thought he was special then. And obviously, he is now still.”
One time, James was playing at Charlotte made his way over to Davidson. Another time, he made the drive over to Detroit for an NCAA tournament game. Both times, he was caught on camera being blown away.
Here’s video from his trips to get his fix of Curry.
