LeBron James more valuable to his team, NBA than Stephen Curry, according to Cleveland Cavaliers GM David Griffin

Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry (30) and Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James (23) exchange some words in low tone toward the end of the fourth quarter of a NBA game at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., on Friday, Jan. 9, 2015. Warriors 112-94. (Ray Chavez/Bay Area News Group)

Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin said Thursday he believes LeBron James is more valuable to his team and the NBA than two-time reigning MVP Stephen Curry.

“I would have said that Michael Jordan was the MVP every year of his prime, and I would tell you that LeBron is as well,” Griffin told the Jim Rome Show on Thursday. “If V is valuable, I don’t see any way that there’s a player that means more to our league or to his individual team than LeBron does or than Michael did. But I certainly think the seasons that Steph has put together are historically good. He’s a player that has taken a team to an unprecedented record and a championship, and he deserves all the accolades he gets, but in terms of value to a league, I think LeBron is the face of this league just as Michael Jordan was.

“I think so just in terms of the word ‘value,’ and again, we can get into a semantics question there, but I think if we’re really talking about who’s carrying a franchise and a league, I think LeBron does that, and our record without LeBron on the floor is not terribly good. He’s a guy who transcends every analytic metric you could ever use.”

Griffin’s comments came a day after Curry on the court was presented the MVP trophy after becoming the first player to win it by a unanimous vote and James following a third-place finish congratulated the Warriors star.

“I think he definitely deserved it,” James told reporters. “Obviously you look at his numbers, you look at their success. But I think there’s a lot of valuable guys in our league that add value to their team.

“You look at Steph’s numbers. I mean, he averaged 30 (points per game). I think he led the league in steals. He was 90-50-40 (percent on free throws, field goals and 3-point attempts), and they won 73 wins. Can you have really 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. But take nothing away from him. He’s definitely deserving of that award for sure.”
