For the first time in his professional career, Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James was playing with Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry. These two have been adversaries on basketball courts for most of their pro careers. However, in Sunday’s All-Star Game, LeBron and Curry were on the same team. They played together and yes, they looked really well.
Following the big game, LeBron talked about his experience and Curry’s presence on the floor. The four-time NBA champion took to his Twitter account to express his gratitude for being able to share the floor with the Warriors veteran. LeBron said he enjoyed every bit of the game.
“Finally got to share the floor with @StephenCurry30!” LeBron wrote. “Well overdue and I loved every single second!! #GreatestShooterOfAllTime #ChangedHowTheGameIsPlayedByHimselfAlone #RespectBeyondWords #JustSomeKidsBornInAKRON”
LeBron James likes playing with Curry
Team LeBron looked really great on the floor. LeBron was on the same team with Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, and Nikola Jokic. They smashed Team Durant 170-150 and the Greek Freak won the NBA All-Star Game MVP award.
We have seen so much from the rivalry between King James and Curry. During his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers, LeBron challenged the Golden State four times and won a ring in 2016.
LeBron left the Cavaliers after the 2017-18 season and signed a four-year deal with the Lakers. However, he hasn’t met the Warriors in the Western Conference playoffs.
The 2021 playoffs may change this. LeBron and his Lakers teammates are 24-13 with the No.3 seed right now. Stephen Curry and his Warriors teammates have a 19-18 record but struggling for one of the lower seeds.
Depending on the second half of the season, a fifth postseason clash between LA and the Golden State may be in the cards.
LeBron is determined to take his teammates to the top. The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to repeat the same performance and win a back-to-back title. The only thing we can do right now is sit and wait. LA looks great and head coach Frank Vogel can’t wait to see Anthony Davis back on the floor.
