LeBron James praises Stephen Curry on 'The Ellen Show'

Published Add your comment

LeBron James and Stephen Curry are the two biggest athletes in the NBA right now and have become default rivals over the years due to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors' fierce competition.

James and the Cavs were the winners this year and the three-time finals MVP has reclaimed his position at the top of the NBA mountain.

However, Curry and the Warriors are not going away and many are expecting the third installment of their finals battle come 2017.

The 2016 finals appeared to breed some bad-blood between the two organisation - that is always going to be the case with so much on the line - but speaking on 'The Ellen Show', the four-time MVP spoke very highly of the Warriors point guard.

James said: "He's a great guy, he's a fierce competitor, I'll tell you that, so don't get fooled by that smile when he come up here. If any of y'all played basketball or golf he's gonna try and take it from you so don't get fooled.


"For me, I think the best thing is we're two of the most talked about athletes in the world and we were both born in Akron, Ohio so that means a lot to me."
